We the truck is getting a major facelift on the interior as we speak. I have gutted the entire inside of the truck and will e redoing all the cabinets and upholstery, seats, steering wheel etc. Should be a fun project only problem is I will be working the next 10 out of 12 days in California so I am gonna be choppin at the bits to get back at it. Also hope I don't forget where all the bolts go.
Here are a few photo's of what the inside of a 770 looks like. If anyone wants any detailed photo's of any areas please let me know and I will try to get them for you. Also I finished my bed on the back of the truck. I was real pressed for time and was not able to paint all the underside of all the boards so I am hoping it lasts. If not I will redo it and paint everything before installing. I just didn't have the time to paint, wait, install. I figured less than $200 total in lumber so not that much to build. It was dark out so lighting is bad on the photo's but you get the idea..

Sean,
Funny you should mention that about the ash tray. It looks like one but it is actually a magnetic dish that is holding nuts and bolts.

Wow, that's starting from scratch. The bed looks great. Is that a Trailair hitch?

I guess once you go HD you can never go back eh?

It's actually a Trailersaver hitch. Great air ride hitch. Ya it's hard to go back once you have owned one.

I have to agree with Sean there Dave, thats quite a project, and I hate interior work. Much rather be underneath than inside and underneath, if ya know what I mean. Be looking good when ya get her done though.

Actually, Senoir Tomas, I used to like the outside work, but these new fandangled vehicles require a bit 'o sophistication that my feeble brain lost years ago. Not to mention the fact that getting rid of used oil is a PITA now, let alone get any of it anywhere else other than in the can. My last project of putting the airbags on the truck will only be superceeded by a job of putting new shocks on it.

And Dave: by the looks of your upgrade, I'm gonna say you're gonna need a bigger ashtray that THAT one!! Hey...lookin' forward to seeing the new rig! BTW...how'd the engine issue come out? What was it?

Gosh, you need to live here, I just go out back and put it in the pile where I burn the brush I collect, that way I end up burning it all.

So what's the color scheme and upholstery gonna look like?

Nice project. That's a lot of work but I'm sure it will be well worth it when you hit the road again.

Keep posting pics as progress is made!
