New 'Clothes' For thhe sweetheart

So, while i was studying abroad this summer, my mom took my car and had it re-painted because she was sick of looking at the hideous scratches that i had ALL over it. I have 2 pics of the new job, they're not that great and they're without wax because i've been busy getting ready to move back to school. i get pics after i get a coat of wax on it.

^-- there used to be a DEEP scratch all along this fender.

excuse the dust, theres a ton of construction at the house right now and a cover helps only slightly.

I guess this is my mom's way of forcing me to keep the truck on the street. HOWEVER, i managed to convince her to let me get a quad =).

haha, yeah maybe. I'll probably end up going shotgun in my buddies prerunner when we get tired.

And yeah, im looking at the raptor 700. I can get a good deal on an '08 through a close friend - all i need to do is hear back about a job. I'll keep you in mind when im home,for sure.

Forget my mom, I wish I had that kind of money.

Wheres' the before shot? You can't just show an after shot, it's against the rules. Looks good though.

haha, my mom is from tijuana, so she took it down there to a guy that lives down the street from my grandparents and we got the whole thing, single stage, shot for 350 usd.

as for the before shot, this is one i took up at the rincon shortcut. I never got a closeup of the damage on my paint because I didnt want to think about it. it was freakin' depressing. Here's the best i could do as a before:

Looks good. Now and then I think I would like to get my truck repainted and I just realize it would be a waste of $$ because I love to wheel it! I got mt Cap painted and 1 week later I was out wheelin/campin @ Union Grove! Fresh scratches for fresh paint!

I need mine repainted but it would be pointless because it would be jacked again the next time I'm out. I can't stop, pretty sure I'm addicted

looks good, hopefully it holds up
