Hi,
New to the forum as I recently bought a 2006 GMC Canyon Crew Cab from Impact Auctions here in Canada. The truck was in an accident. It was hit on the back left corner and the back window was completely gone. There is also 2 dents on the box. Currently fixing it up with the help of my Gf's dad who is a body man. Figured it would be perfect to post under this section. I'll be posting progress as things get done. There will be lots of pictures! To start here are pictures of it when it was at the auction site.

What the heck... how did dirt and mud get up there, and what happened to the top of the cab? Did a tree fall on it or something?

Good luck with it, looking forward to seeing progress. What are your plans?

Only plans I have so far is to get it back on the road. Whoever had it before me already put all the mods I would have put in like k&n cai, magnaflow dual exhaust, halo headlights, grill overlay, etc. I've pretty much got all the parts already to fix it. Made sure I bought a slider window to lol can't live without that. I'll definitely go register on canada355.ca

I've already been working on it for a week so I've got some more pictures to post shortly.

I've seen that truck before, it was at Canada355's South East Canada Super Meet last year.







Sad to see it wrecked, but happy it is getting fixed up!

The tires were all flat. I went and got the rims buffed and polished because they had caked in dirt on the inside of the lip on the rim that was causing air to escape. All 4 tires are full of air now.

I gutted out the interior to make room to work on the roof.

Here's pics of the gutted interior. Also the roof from the scrapper's and the progress on the roof. (Guy in the pic is my Gf's dad)

Now bear with me, I know these posts and pics are all over the place but I'm caught up to today now with this post.

Today I had the windshield removed and out of boredom I put my stereo in as well.
I've posted a few edited pics to show you how we are cutting the roof and replacing.

The first pic: Everything inside the red is being cut out and the rest is staying. The posts weren't compromised in the accident so we didn't see the point in cutting them out.

The second pic from the back: I've circled that area because that is how we are cutting the back posts on the spare roof to fit. Kind of hard to explain without better pictures.

Lots of measurements and patience needed!

I trust my gf's dad with it. He has a 2006 Ford F-150 that went through a house and he won it at auction same as mine, fixed it up and is currently driving it so I know this truck is a cinch for him to fix.
