Bring it up. We can take the vin code of your truck and get the matching paint locally. The sooner the better so the cover fades with the rest of the truck and matches better.

I'm not that good yet. Getting better though. I had to correct some ' learning curve ' things today as last night.. when I left Daves.. I had to take his car. I screwed something up ( don't want to get into it ) and spent some time today correcting it.

For grins and giggles.. I took these today at Dave and Brians houses. The drivers side is NOT buffed at all, not even hit with polishing compound..

For starters, and to **** everyone off.. Take a look at this

Mileage..

From a full tank..


On Ethanol, I'm getting about.. 370 miles to the stock 19.x tank. I drive 36miles each way to work on the thruway/country roads 3 or 4 days a week. 3.31gears FTW! Before anyone cries, This truck can $hit and Git better then 98% of those on this site, so I don't want to hear anything about being slow at launch/takeoff.

Its all in how you set it up. If you do the math, and have the ability ( or a friend with tools and the abilities.. ) things can happen. ( roughly )20mpg on Ethanol with an SOHC engine. 2.75$-3.00$ a gallon..

Comparrison for color matching..

For gas, paint.. and having to spend the night..

You could probably do it cheaper locally.

Tom in Ohio ( ScottyG knows him quite well ) can do it and hes in the Columbus area! Hes a LOT better then me!

and just so you know, looking at your truck, and knowing what youve done to that engine makes me hate myself all the more for selling my 2000. supercharger or not, i doubt id have kept up. it would have been quite the road trip though.... into yankee territory though. *shudder*
