Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy and Consumer Protection attorney here to assist you.
What matters is the value of the asset at the time you filed your Bankruptcy.
The Bankruptcy court cannot look at the value of your truck now, after you restored it. They can only look at what the truck was worth when you filed your Bankruptcy - $6,000.
Additionally, if the truck was exempt when you filed, then you have the right to do anything with the truck - including selling it - regardless of what you did with the proceeds of the sale.
