OK - in "real life", I'm working on a Dodge Rampage for a Land-Speed Record attempt in the H/Diesel Truck category at Bonneville.

I have messed around enough in PS Elements 8.0 to know that I don't have the skills to do what I want to do. I need to spend my time working on the actual truck.

I'm hoping to find someone to do some PS Chop work for a fair price. Here are a few photos of the truck as I brought it home. It is currently in about a million pieces, so it will be a while before I can take any more photos of it all together.

This is what it looks like now, with the body on a rotisserie...

Anyway, I want to have a 'chop of what I want the finished project to look like. The list of mods I'd like to see (probably on the driveway photo of the truck, taken from the passenger's side) is as follows:

1. Remove side mirrors
2. Remove windshield wipers
3. Remove bed rails
4. Remove chrome trim from wheelwells
5. Remove stick-on flames
6. Add Moon Disk wheel covers in place of hubcaps and beauty rings
7. Add a flush-fit aluminum colored tonneau cover
8. Lower it as much as possible, so that the rocker panels look like they are about 4" from the ground.

The ultimate finishing touch would be:

9. Make it look like the truck is sitting on the Bonneville Salt Flats.

If you are interested in doing this work, please PM me to discuss a fair payment, and any other details you might need.

Thank You,

Steve.

Will do. No one has contacted me yet, but this hasn't been out there to "simmer" very long.
