    Well, I\'m Done..........

    for now that is. I have spent a little over 4000 in the past few months and have put all of the parts on my truck. I have one thing left in the garage but I am going to wait until I step up to heavier axles. You have seen the pics over the past few weeks and have accomplished quite a bit from the humble beginings of the Stomper.

    Well If you haven't seen what it looks like so here is a picture. I will be completing me a set of half doors in the coming weeks with help from a few members ideas and plans they have comleted but other than that I am going to whell the stew out of it and then see where I go from there. Now that I have a 12000lb insurance policy on board I don't have to wait for anyone else to go with me. See you all on the trails.

    That's quite an acomplishment! I can't get over the paint job, it looks so awesome! I admire the time you put into it, that would take a long time to get just right /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif

    On a person, there's no comparison... the new "digital" pattern is superior to the old "woodland".

    Very impressive camo pattern. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
    How do you lay it out, and how long did it take to paint?

    65 hours and that was with some body work. I pulled the molding off and left some holes so went through and done it. Layed everything out with tape and painted and pulled. It isn't perfect but good enough for the trail.
