Re: project 86

I love that color is that what you plan on using for the whole truck or are you going to go in a different direction for that?

Re: project 86

Very nice work...this truck will be a beast once its done. I too love the blue, maybe a black pinstripe on the truck wouldn't look bad though. Bada$$ engine, gotta love a spotless engine/compartment. Keep it up with the pics/progress.
