    One of the projects for this week... get my crew cab on the road so I can drive it around the state this week.

    All it needs is a motor... so this one I pulled out of a parts truck...

    I made sure I didn't use Ford blue.

    I wanted to use a color similar to the color of the truck, so I used some of that Dupli-Color High Temp Blue. It's lighter than Ford blue but darker than Chevy blue.

    Sometimes when painting a engine, I like too use off colors. Had a bright yellow engine in a Black 85 Monte Carlo CL. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
