I went to the nuts and bolts store to pick up the same bolts I bought at the blue big box store. ⅓ the price, looks like a trip to the box store to return the bolts. Went to the welding store and picked up some gas for the welder. Tried to pick up some parts at the truck store but everything I wanted was out of stock, well one item was there but way over priced.
Primed and painted the bracing made yesterday. Braces green and tailgate white both in single stage. No body work on the tailgate, it gets to keep its battle scares, just in a shinny new color.
