    New paint is on! The truck was not in a spot that lent to good pictures, though...

    Looks like it will be coming home sometime next week. I need to add some lights, a seat and a seat belt, then get it running again after 6 months sitting around in the paint shop.

    Home from the paint shop today, one week shy of 6 months. Still loud, still quick, but MUCH better looking.

    Now it's time to start working through the details.

    The exterior is pretty much done. Working on the interior now, then on to cleaning up under the hood.
