picked it up friday.not really what i was expecting (kappy kind of lied about the interior and a couple dents)
it still is rust free and has alot of potential.the interior is shot, but it probly runs better than any other sube i`ve owned.

after taking off the cap, cleaning it up, undercoating the unibody, and painting the wheels, here is how she looks.

Everyone fibs about the condition of things, when they sell them.

Put the Brat decals on her, a little TLC and she'll be fine. Not to worry. It'll work.

Hehe, very nice, practically identical to my one. Black steels aye, don't look half bad. I might have to copy you on that one.

thanks for all the comments guys!i used that rubberized undercoating on the frame. (for all of about 6 bucks) did the whole thing.it improves the look and protects from rusting.fyi, its a pain to get off your hands, trust me, i ended up using gas.

i love the way the black looks on these steelies, kind of gives the truck a utility look.going to put some chrome trim rings on the wheels also.the best paint for wheels is engine or heat paint (made by krylon, comes in a spray can) it has a much harder and better looking finish that regular spray paint.

I love the look of gen 1 Brats! That thing has a ton of potential! Good score, especially if it runs good.
