    I cut open the front fender wells the other day, they were full of sand, dirt, leaves, pine straw, and other organic items. I started peeling away the fiberglass patch job that some previous owner did. I have some sheet metal parts coming in soon and my buddy is going to cut and weld the parts in for free and prime them for a paint job. Now, what color should I paint this thing. I think it will be a green and primer color for a while. I'll use it to pick up dates in;)

    Oh I know all about that. Mine's not roadworthy at the moment - front driver-side mount is gone. Major floorpan/rocker surgery is scheduled for this winter.

    I posted some pics over in the 4x4 thread - the big orange one is mine.
