Thanks man. Yep, thats the same truck! It looks totally different now doesn't it?! The yellow stripe is what is left of the flames. I just swapped to all red body panels instead of painting it, so I have to do a little touch up on the cab.

I got all the body parts from another used truck, so they were both faded equally!
