    Well that was actually a test for myself... now I'm not afraid to paint it..... So..... I'm probably going to repaint the whole truck once we rebuild the engine. And I am seriously swaying to blue... more so GRABBER BLUE and black. I'll probably stay with that same scheme when I do. :D

    yes the insurance wouldn't pay for it... they actually said they couldn't...

    I like the original color. Brown, I mean.

    You need another insurance company! Why do you have insurance if they won't cover a loss?

    After all that work, I'm surprised you'd want to paint it again. Paint = Not cheap.
    Carl is right, you know. A little red on the hood, and it wouldn't look so,...not right? I can't think of the correct word.

    You saw nothing. Just like that 71 Ranchero you supposedly saw. And, like in that thread, boom, you brought this thread to religion :) Pics, or it never happened.

    Hallelujah! Now make sure you tell him about this site, in case he doesn't know, or if he does, find out which member he is.

    I'm too nice to say that. The only person it has to look good to is Sarah, and apparently it does.
