It's already dirty I used the plow as soon as I got it done. I didn't paint the plow I probably will. I decided to get the stickers. I'm waiting on them.

Lookin good.

haha marty my old man saves me alot of money when I do these, he can make anything. So I don't need to buy small parts. I tore it apart here and hauled it to his garage so he could fab as I went along. Then I hauled it back when it was done. Some of the stuff he made I didn't think could be done. Alot of it you can't find anymore. How you like those yellow orings on my tire chains

I was going to use gm galaxy silver but I mixed my own I used rustoleum aluminum and mixed it with rustoleum gray. To get the color to match and still have it metallic. It matched really good to factory. I sprayed it with a spray gun. Someone painted it a darker color before. I used my other gt 18 to match the paint off of

You've done a beautiful job on your GT 18 Tec, It will really pop when you get your decals on it. I ended up spending $85.00 on them but I had to buy the dash decal for mine since I had to use an older dash on it I was amazed how easy it was to put them on.

 

 It's a great feeling the first time you get to play on it being "brand new" it looks fantastic Tec
