    I spent all afternoon under a sandblasting hood, gloves, jacket, and my wranglers in 95 degree heat. I striped them down to the bare metal and now they are ready to paint. It was well worth the time and effort. One thing for sure, I don't plan on moving that damn 14FF again till the day it goes on my truck! Just moving it around wore me out.

    Black. My brother has got polyurethane paint that we are going to shoot it with. We might do the entire undercarriage later this summer. I'm even going to paint the calipers, but I'm not sure what color yet.

    Brown argyle. (like the socks your neighbor wears with his sandals when he's mowing the yard.)

    What about bright yellow and then you could put some of those neon lights on the underside. Cool huh?

    Forget the Neon. Paint'em white and stick black lights under truck.

    There is a VERY fine line between hobby and mental illness
