    the unveiling of Darth Blazer! (pic\'s of new paint job)

    ok guys - I have some SERIOUS sag in the back end of this k5!

    anyway - she's painted & running. I still have to finish quite a bit of body assembly on it, but everything is painted. most stuff is bolted up to.

    you'll notice 2 diffent color's of black, but it's just that the other pieces have been out in the dust and dirt. when you clean spots of the pieces that don't look shiny they are the same color.

    new future changes - sliders, custom bumpers, mirrors, new wheels all painted same color of black.

    Those wheels look pretty nice on a black truck. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif I'll bet they'll look even better once they're shined up nice and bolted to my black Suburban! /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    yea those wheels are going to look real nice shined up! I got that thing out &amp; almost wonder what in the world I would sell them to ya! LOL

    anyway I think I will still be happier the other direction cuz I'd always have that temptation to ruin that nice set of wheels by painting them black /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif/forums/images/icons/blush.gif

    How come you call the Blazer "she" when it's name is "Darth Blazer?" Isn't Darth Vader in the movies a man instead of a woman? /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Well, you're not done quite yet, so I would have to say this.... this. Now your K5 will probably want to know <a target="_blank" href=http://www.bastcastle.cc/sounds/bidding.wav>what</a> to do. Haha, I am such a dork /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif. Sorry, I've been Darth Vader every Halloween since I was like 13.

    Got another <a target="_blank" href=http://www.bastcastle.cc/sounds/techterr.wav>one!</a> /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif. I guess this would mean don't beat on it too hard until your sure everything is in proper order.
