Just finished the BRAT. I've wanted one since I was a teenager (long ago). It took a year and a half but was totally worth it! Now I can start working on my 1st generation 1981 BRAT. I learned a lot from the good people on this website.

Ditto! A flat black BRAT Targa Strip on there would look killer! Nice job on the Brat!

Thanks for all the nice comments. Bratrod, I will try to post a couple of before pics. Buckkiller, I don't have any closer pics of the trim and bumper right now but I will try to get some. The bed liner material I used is called Raptorliner, tuff and easy to use if you get the kit with the spray gun (check TCP Global or Amazon) gets great reviews. I have considered the stripe kit and will soon be putting jump seats in the back.
