    Well it started off as a red truck, faded paint, a small hand full of light that worked when they wanted to. I decided to "murder" out my Mack for now.
    I drill all the holes down the side for the LED lights, and maybe over the winter i will chrome the plates again around the headlights, and get new chrome letters and dog back on it. Its going to get stickered up by the end of this week. it will look like the small one. let me know what you think.

    If your still running windows you can download the resizer from Microsoft ,then all you do is right click the picture in your files and you can resize them .

    What size holes did you cut in the body for your marker lites. I am guessing you used a hole saw , how do the rubber grommets fit . I want to put a few in my dump. PS I seen your post last year when you were thinking about buying the truck.looks good from the old pics ,how does she run.

    Go to "User CP"

    Under your Control Panel click " Attachments", its all the way at the bottom.

    Open the picture that you want and copy the address

    Then post the address like this [​IMG]
