      Alright so some of you know Ive been painting my truck the last week, and I was going to wait to show it off at T-haven...But I know you all can't wait and I'm to proud of my hard work:D

      So here are some pictures I took with my cell phone.

      Still have more to do, need to remount the front bumper, wetsand the whole truck and put on the JP logos when they get here..

      The entire paint job was done using a $10 air sprayer from Harbor Freight and Rustoleum paint. The green I actually custom made, as no color was available like that.;)


      Here is the original...in case you forgot:p:

      Ya, and even more, they are attached to tracks.

      Stic-o, looks like you're doing an awesome job on the paint. It will look killer when its all done! Just hope you dont roll again and mess up that beautiful paint.

      That's actually part of the reason why I did it. As the truck gets dented and scratched more, it just looks more authentic.;) ...and I can blame it on the "Dinosaurs". :p:

      i think if you ever get a gnarly bash on one of your corners, instead of fixing it, you should airbrush some claw marks over it......
