    We might be able to work something out. Ive got access to a shop, but cant paint. Ive done some bodywork. Im not a pro by anymeans, but maybe I could help you with bodywork and you could help me by painting my truck? Ive got welders and plasma cutter and stuff. What kind of body work are you needed done?

    I don't mean to interrupt this little romantic thing you boys have going on here tonight, BUT...

    My idea of body work is covering up my trail "scars" with roll-on bed liner. Does that count for anything? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    So you liked my touch huh!??? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I really like it. It keeps all the metal protected from light to medium trail scratching.

    Yeah, its tough as hell. When i had my K5, the one I brought to your house, I tried hitting the bed liner with a ratchet and it just barely scratched it. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    You best get OFF my back, or you might get some of your own SCARS, and they won't have anything to do with your rig either! /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    Simmer down now.
    You'll have more than ample opportunity to scar it up in Hot Springs.
    I'll make sure of it....I'll be your spotter!

    Has this thread been ruthlessly hijacked yet??
    Sorry Scott.

    In dan's defense, I did see him get off pavement just yesterday. Yep, he rolled right over the curb and into the grass for a second. From the look in his eyes, there must have been a big brown stain in the seat. That 4" curb dang near did him in. And that's not even getting around to talking about The Brick he could barely roll over. I've never seen this guy "wheel" but I'd bet he spends most of his time on the end of a yank strap. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Yank strap? The only reason I carry them with me is to pull Todd out from his stucks when he busts crap! No stucks, no breaks for me... YET! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif I still have to find spare set of 60 axles to bring on this run!

    With the 42's I expect that I might find some breakage... but with any luck that won't happen.

    And if you need to see any pics of my truck wheeling, here are a few snap shots... you bastard!

    You can also look on Pg.82 of the August '02 Four Wheeler! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif For all that haven't noticed yet, Bryan and I are in the middle of sorting out who is going to be the alpha dog around here... /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    Hey, are you sure those photos weren't shot on a <font color="blue">Blue Screen </font color> then the background inserted?
    Kinda looks like they were.
