Put some graphics on today......

Well, to the advise of many on here I named my truck and put the decals on today... The ones on the bedside were done like a single decal so it "looks" different from side to side... But dimensionally they're the same...




I got me another sponsor last week, so tomorrow I get to haul it to a sheetmetal shop so they can install the aluminum in the bed for me... I'll post up some pics when I bring it home... I'm also installing my front and rear lexan this weekend...

You need something on the scoop, or maybe black out the cowl area. Hope you don't blind yourself on the track .

I noticed that too... I was sitting in it the other day out in the sun, and there's a little bit of glare...

You could flat black the scoop or the hood to calm down the glare.

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid-in-sideways, totally worn out, shouting.."holy crap.... what a ride!"

Doug,
It looks cool!
With the work that you did...the other guys better not "toy" with you at the finish line as you truck on by! The will just see a yeller streak.
Carry on...

Great colour Doug. Kinda reminds me of my old yellow '04 F150... except for the scoop, slicks, skinnies, chrome bumper and grill, oh yes and the motor !
