Stop your killing me, thats still a good looking truck. That color paint of your truck is at autozone for $4.. Did you ahve to use black or something? Hopefully a warm weekend is around the corner, that would drive me nuts.

Not working on your truck when it's cold is no excuse. I have been working on mine all week in weather between 19* and 59*(59* was only one day).
