We have rustoleum "rolled" multiple trucks and we don't mind....lasts forever...now what color?
Your not getting off that easy...

Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

I had a '49 Willys that I painted OD green. That should be an easy color to find.

Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

I'm mad at someone here for mentioning generators. It caused me a lot of work today! ;) Oh, new steer tires as well.
