Hey everyone, I have owned this GT for over 20 years and it has never been pressure washed! I would spray it off with the garden hose now and then or just blow it off with the air compressor. It really got mudded up bad after last October's blizzard and snow and more mud 'till a week and a half ago. It FINALLY has warmed up enough to get the pressure washer going and blast it off! I've only owned a pressure washer for a couple years now and never had the time to do this anyway.

 

Last pic is tomorrow's project, before Easter dinner, get the MF12G pulled out of it's corner and ready to mow!

Wow, the 8 really looked good. I bet she loved the bath.
The 12 looks ready to me. Eager even.

Yes I agree! They both look great!!

 

I do have to say, I had a hard time concentrating on the MF8E  with 2 awesome old GMC trucks in the back ground :thumbs: :D

Thanks Alan- that's my middle name but with 2 "L"s-LOL! The 12 may not take much but where I have it stashed will take a bit to get out.

 

Looks Good, both of them. :thumbs:

Thanks Doug- that's my first name-LOL! They look better in pics than in person but they ain't bad.

 

Yes I agree! They both look great!!

Thanks Chris- that's my son's name-LOL! not kidding on any of this! Glad you like the old GMC's! The oldest one is a '55, the white one is a '72 that the wife and I bought in 1979 and there is one in the shop not in the pics, a 1970 GMC Jimmy that my Mom bought in 1971 and drove for 30 years.

Looks good. It looks like original paint. That sure is holding

up real good. Any of the Execs I've redone, have all been

repainted over the original. That stuff is hard to get off. E-tank

wouldn't touch it. Sure would be nice to get a hold of some of

that stuff.

Someone did repaint the hood at one time, pretty badly. I think the rest is original but pretty rough. I probably should pursue trying to restore it right someday but then I would probably be afraid to abuse it! Our bead blaster at work is big enough for the sheet metal components if I decided to do that but for now Dick is put away until I get time to do some gravel pushin'.
