You can't see through my truck anymore!

Well, its been over a year, so I finally picked up some vinyl covering and made gap guards for my truck. Now people can't watch the traffic through the side of my truck anymore.

I bought the material from Home Depot, it cost me about $12.00 for 6 foot. Because of the body lift the front splash guards weren't doing much, so I made my own with 3" extensions as well.

I cleaned it up, and took a few photos down at the local track afterwards.

Going good Billy, we just worked out our budget today, and I'm going to work with the bank tomorrow.

Haha, yeah, I was thinking something like that. Thank God the new guards cover them up.

Thanks, I do my work on separate layers. One for the truck, one for the background, then worked things out from there.
