played with paint.. again.

I have a ' friend ' coming in this weekend. She wants to doll-up and get some pics with my truck.. Well.. I haven't had a ' babe pic ' in a while so.. why not? Nobody else is offering..

The problem is.. I've been working on everyone elses trucks all summer long and haven't even buffed mine out. I start on something, then get no-where. All I have really done was my Tranny/clutch. So.. Dave offered the shop to help ' things look a little better '.

Dave took some of the pics..

Like I have mentioned before . . . I can't put into words how much I love that stance . . . I can't look away, it's perfect.

Couple questions if you got time; what grit sandpaper were were you using for wet-sanding?

Hard to tell in the pictures, how close did you manage to get the paint to match?

Once again, looks amazing, post more pics anytime, thanks, Kyle.

600. The clear coat was polished off with 1600? ( Dave knows what it was.. its called ' polishing paper ' or something like that ).

The whole truck has been repainted section by section over the last.. 2 years. Its all from the same Gallon of Sonic blue so.. it matches perfectly.

Welp. The next pics of the ' whole truck ' I post will ( hopefully ) have the babe in it with them. After those are done, the truck will be a different color and .. well.. it might as well be a totally different truck

Doing that tomorrow. Shortening the pipes 2-3 inches as well so they tuck under nicely.

Its never normal. Its either..

- Ripped apart
- Wrecked and waiting to be ripped apart
- At the track Waiting to be wrecked and ripped apart later
- Being put back together so it can go to the track, to wreck, then wait to be ripped apart..

Vicious circle, no?

Blah, Maybe I'll paint it orange so it will be HAWTER then yours!

One thing I will say, and everyone knows I swear by 1 rule when posting pics liek that.

I need to ask her if its ' ok '. I've posted pics of her on here before and she was cool with it. We'll see I don't think she will mind.
