Zombie Assault Preparedness Vehicle or ZAPV

Before:

I had just bought the truck for 4k with just over 100k miles on it, was just going to be a daily driver but decided to make it a capable off road vehicle. Soon you will see the transformation of this truck into the ZAPV or Zombie Assault Preparedness Vehicle.

This is how I got the truck.

I decided to put bed liner on all of the plastic parts, and it looked good. At this point I thought I was done with the body (foolish me) I was going to settle for a good looking with minor capabilities truck.

I soon grew tiered of all the plastic wrapped around the truck, and the fact that the bed liner wasn’t sticking to it, so I pulled all of the plastic off and started over. I filled all of the holes left by the plastic with bondo or expanding insulation foam.

Bed lining was applied next. The whole truck was covered (including the rear wheel well). This didn't take as long as I thought it would.

And at last the Zombie Assault Preparedness Vehicle or ZAPV. It is the essential vehicle to use in case of a zombie outbreak, it can drive long distances, prevent rust, clime mountains, find high ground, and cover your sent from the brain eating bastards. This should not be your only plan in an zombie infestation, but you should always keep several options on the table. A vehicle would be the first step of a evacuation from an infected area. You would only want to use it to get out of a major city and make it to a relatively rural zone where you can take a high vantage point. Remember always be prepared.

EDIT: I don't have time to make rules and such for membership so if any one want to be in Team ZAPV just pick a number (except 1-3)

Zombies are the only true way to manage the world's population. At least you'd be able to help replenish the world's pop when you survive the infestation.
That is freaking great, zombies are awesome. Have you read the walking dead comic books?

I have not read them (no time with the kids)

Ok, we need more people to join the Z.A.P.V. team! I want to be in if this becomes possible!
I actually am going to be buying a van (my family is outgrowing the truck) and I'm converting it to, the will all be numbered to.

I've heard about that, sounds fun as hell.

Blee needs to get on the ball and start making some ZAPV vinyls for us!

I actually was planing on contacting him on getting some for the front and rear and maybe side window.
