    Went back to the show today with fr8train and remembered the camera today. The rig that has the pics of it cost the owner $180,000 to have the paint job done. He said it took over 3600 hours to complete. Also the black K30 had a 10 bolt in the front. What's up with that??

    That K30 might have still been a Dana 60, they also have 10 bolt covers.

    WOW!!! Thats about all I can say about that semi and the paint!!! Makes you wonder if that owner has anything better to do?! [​IMG]

    As for the black K30, the owner probably bought it from someone who really knew what the front axle was and kept it for himself!!! [​IMG]

    Good lord, if I owned that truck, I'd be afraid to drive it!! $180k is a LOT of paintwork to get bugsplats/pebble chips/birds#!t on...

    Cool pics Wayne. It was really cool to finally meet you on Saturday (and your son). Wish I could've stayed longer (or got there earlier for that matter), but me and my bud had plans we had to attend to that night.

    Anyhow, I had fun. Wish the weather was as good as it was on Sunday though hugh :)
    Great pics you took there, I have to get mine down loaded!
