    Nice misty day for fishing the New River. Nothing to brag about on the catches though. New mirrors and CB too!

    Only took two as I was damp and ready to get going and warm and dry. Here's the only other I have. That's vapor/steam or whatever not smoke in the first photo. It was about 39 and misting rain! Juat a week ago there wasn't any green other than grass and evergreens!

    no i'm really not i think it looks damn good i'm gonna try and put a decent paint job on my K5 in the coming weeks.

    just can't decide what color i wanna go with i think i'll go with the sand color or with rustoleum hammered silver (it hides dents and scratches etc. :D )

    :waytogo: Thats pretty good for rattle-can. It takes a lot of patience to do that much with a spray can. Hats off :waytogo:
