I agree! The wheels and "pie-crust" slicks would be perfect! :-)~

DO love the wheels not sold on the heavy boat lowrider metal flake! I thing it the color that got me going NO!! god No! lol lol. Now medium flake I might could see that or a little darker green that does not blind you when you look at it! lol!! Oh I bet the only reason you painted the truck pink was I bet the paint was cheap!!

Thanks guy's..
I had to back off a little while... Trying to get some bills out the way... Just doing little things right now on it... But it will come...

As far as the paint on the pink truck... No it wasn't cheap.... I want to say it was around $1500.00 back in 1995.... So that's not the reason why....

When me and speedy was building the truck... I was joking around about the color.... And said Hot Pink... Well we was using Rage body filler on it... I really liked the color of the can... But I didn't want to try matching the can... So speedy kept telling me to paint it hot pink... I really thought he was NUT'S.... So when It was time to paint it...

I went to the paint store to pick a color... NOW HOT PINK wasn't even on my mine at that time... So I picked a bunch of colors.... So I called speedy in gave him the different #'s to see what he would pick...

Well !!! I saw the hot pink color and thought ,,HEY !!! I will add this one to the list for a joke..... Well !!! the joke back fired on me... When he went to check out the #'s I gave him.. He called me and said... Hot pink Hands down... I said WHAT !!!! And I do have to say...

I WAS REALLY SCARED !!!!!...

But when It was all done.... I really don't think any other color was for that truck.... And all the awards proved that I made the right decision...

And to top it off.. 15years later, And the truck has been through four owners since me... And everything on the truck when it left my house,Is still on the truck today...EVERYTHING... Even the pink paint... And a girl NEVER owned it...

Cool!!! I record Gears so I know I won't miss it. Glad to see you're getting the recognition you deserve. That's a lot of work..... and very nicely done so far. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Thanks Centerline... At least I know two of us will be watching the show...

I had the chance to talk to them today on the phone... Great people on the other end of the phone.. Very Nice too... I'll record it too..

I think Stacey will have a little fun with this one with the pictures I sent..... There's no telling what he will say... That's the cool part about him....
