    I posted pics of the new dump already but I figured I start a new thread since I will have a few photos of the old and new decals. Here are some pics of the truck when I got it. You can see the horrible orange stripping. Actually, its painted on. I found out that the orange was the second coat of paint on this truck. It had purple under it. You can see in the pictures what I am talking about. The removed paint is after about 20 mins of work. A little "easy off oven cleaner" and a hose and it just melts off. I will add more pics of the truck as I get it detailed then relettered.

    The truck is actually a metallic forest green in color. Who in paints purple graphics on a green truck, then thinks its ugly, and changes it to red/orange? Talk about colors that do not go together.

    Well its my second one. I think they hold up great. All trucks beak down and need a little TLC. I always here guys that I work with saying "my Pete or Mack or KW never breaks down". They are all full of crap. It all depends on how you take care of them.
