    I was going to start on my square tube driveshaft Monday. I had part of the original one cut up to salvage the yokes and the power just died. I waited about 15 minutes for it to come back on to no avail. My friend and I decided that this was the perfect opportunity to add a little pizzazz to the pumpkin...laid out some tribal style flames and painted BT (my nickname) in old english letters on the hood. The angle sucked in the pics so it really doesn't do it justice, but you get the idea. I am but a mere pic whore who's extremely bored.

    Looks really good. What kind of paint did you use to do it?

    The orange is Allis Chalmers orange from the local farm store. The black is some 10 year old enamel that I dug out of my basement with a coleman lantern because of the power situation.

    With the power out, you couldn't have sprayed. How did you apply the paint??

    I didn't spray them, my friend drew them out with a sharpie and I outlined and painted them by hand. Once you get up close they don't look half as good because I'm not very steady. Here is a decent pic of the letters:
