    Thanks!
    I think the pic makes it look a little green, because it is DEFINATELY yellow...

    I am going to have a big one made up but not for the K5, that will be going on the boat. I don't want to get pulled over for DUI checks all the time. The boat will be bad enough... :D

    But I would suggest a more comfortable seat. :)

    BEE-utiful, brother!!!!!:bow: :bow: :waytogo: Someday I'll have to do the same thing to mine, as long as gas prices don't get any stupider than they are now.

    BTW, I thought I should mention that your new level of participation has not gone unnoticed. Thanks for coming around more often!!!!

    Let me know how much a couple of those about 6" in diameter would be. I'd like to get two or so for my toys :D

    I'll let you know as soon as I find out, but it's going to be a while before I get on that.

    That's for sure! But mine has been getting great mileage lately :D

    That's going to look really nice when it's done. Heck it already does.. :cool1:
    It reminds me of a K5 in an old Petersons back around 84,maybe longer that I really liked. It had a 1/2 cab/top, sort of like a shortbed truck.. same color of yellow. The chair also reminds me of a 1st gen camaro we had back in 77 or so.. it only had a drivers seat, so we threw in a big ol beanbag chair for the pass seat. :crazy: :laugh:

    Nice work!

    And a pic of one very proud owner. As you should be.

    Great job!

    Hehe stickseler, looks great.

    When it's done, instead of tires install 2 massive bamboo poles down each side so we can carry you around Moab in royal fashion.

    All Hail King Stickseler...Master of Yellow Paint... :bow:

    It's a compliment.
