    so this last fall was my last semster in highschool, i decided to take the chance and go to tech school for auto body/ paint..i've allways loved it and wanted to get to know it and maybe make that what i do for the rest of my life..so i brought my f-250 in there..looked real tired and needed a face lift i sprayed it myself and i'm so happy with how it turned out..i have some more in mind for it(running boards,bull bar for summer, back rack..ect)

    anyhow heres the transformation

    Very nice. I did the same thing with a 92 ranger I had I striped it down to bare metal and started from there. It turned out pretty good for a novice body man and painter.

    Great job! First I thought you were going black, then white, then I wasn't sure! Quick question.... do you have to change anything with the DMV and the title since it's a different color? I could see it being a hairy situation if Barney bags you for a brake light out or something.... we could be bailing you out of jail for what they think is falsified documents or grand theft!!

    The paint looks beautifull. Did you have to pay anything or did your school fit the bill?
