    Since last year I added a 2000 GMC 1 ton dump, and a 1969 Cat 922B loader. This past summer I repainted and lettered all the trucks as well as repainted a couple of the plows. All in all I guess at least I can say they look good and all match sitting inside the shop waiting on the snow, lol. The last pic is the logo on the back of my employees carharts I bought this year.

    Banksy, and born 2 farm, Thanks for the comments. The 99 K-2500 was red when I got it, and that kind of set the tone for the red fleet. I really liked the looks of it so I decided to paint everything red. I decided on the black to set things off a little. The black is a roll on bed liner, then I sprayed over that with a gloss black to match the factory fender flares.
    As far as the loader, I bought it off a fellow member on here last year, and just love the old girl. It's nothing new by any means, but it runs great, and after a few mods and a paint job, it sure looks good.

    The loader looks bad a$$! I wanted to buy that loader last year, but didnt have the extra cash. I've kicked myself many times over for not buying that machine. Where did you buy the paint and what color is it? I need to repaint a few trucks and really like that color.

    The paint is from Dicks Automotive in Findlay. The color is Torch Red. It is a factory Chevy color, base / clear. I had to put about 3 grand into the loader. New brakes all 4 wheels, new tie rod ends, alot of seals and gaskets, and new air lines, but purchase price, repair, and pusher, I have less than 16,000 in it, so I figure I can't go wrong. It's like a brand new machine mechanically. I would like to find new rubber for it, but it's not a pressing issue.

    I forgot to add, it is surprising how many of these parts for the loader are still available. So far the only thing I have had to really scrounge for is the break pads. I looked everywhere but couldn't find them. I ended up going to a heavy truck brake place, and just having them rivit new liners on and called it good.
