Adventures with Big Blue

Overview

This is the story of a blue truck and its adventures. Other than body work, it has few modifications. So rather than start a build thread for all the changes I didn't do, this thread is going to focus more on what has been done with the truck. Thanks to mosesburb for the inspiration. :thumb: I'll fill in mods as they go, but so far I have been using the truck more than modding it.
