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 *******s. 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.

quick update on mine. Rolled it. took the doors off for easier firing. considering mesh doors. and mesh over rear windows that broke out.

and I bought an 05 silver xlt. already has blacked out headlights and taillights. no other forseeable mods.

and I may be living my worst nightmare. I may be the first zombie. pics to come tonight.
 












You know that is just so weird...I'm not even gonna quote it.
 






lol I love the zapv on the back, and sucks about your eyes man, pink eye?
 






Thats unfortunate for you, do you need me to come and put you down? I will be up by Minot this week. :D

Sucks that the outbreak is starting so close to home, but I am glad I am ready. :)
