Msuperteks New Paint Job!

Well, the paint job is complete, now after it dries for a week I will install my gas can and high lift jack. This paint (as I learned the last time I painted it) dries slowly since I have no heaters to heat it. It will take about 2 to 3 days to dry hard then I'll put my spare back on and all the accessories. One odd thing about this is I actually used the picture below to match the paint color, however the colors look a lot lighter then the samples I chose. Oh well, I think it still come out ok. Topper will be made next weekend and the doors will get covered with the left over canvas from the top.

Here's a pic of the mach Paint Job that was decided by my poll. A.

I also used some herculinar on the sliders to provide a non slippery step...

Thnx for the help in the poll on deciding the right paint job, and thnx to Jim and Jerry for coming out and helping me paint it.

THnx. Well I wish I would have picked darker paint, but now that it is painted it will be another couple of years before I paint it again. The more I look at it the more I like it. :D

Awesome job! I love the idea of tieing in the cage to the sliders, think i'll use that idea if you don't care!
