Default Few things done....

Heres what I did when I got back from meet in Red Deer.



Still have some grime to get but it is amazing compared to the way she was when i got her. Think I will remove hose and soak in simple green tomorrow. Now I need Blue hose kit(Can't find) and cold air intake to get rid of the black rubber hose if nothing else.

lol, its a can of $7 krylon dude. I am planning on trying several colors b4 I make final decision.

I like the blue inside and people who have seen it in person really like it.
Anything but more yellow.

Although I think I will go yellow under hood..

I did the skids in the yellow ford base coat and then applied an industrial clear coat they use on the combines and such out here, they say you can hit with a hammer! farmers are great!

You should use a darker blue that blue is to light.

I actually agree totally. Wanted to match the blue in seat.
Its almost a superman blue.
I can't find a krylon fusion in the color i want so maybe just switch to other brand.
The cap was actually much more of a navy blue.

Hey man if you dont want more yellow and the blue isn't working then use your second color on the truck. DSG would look way better then the blue.
