    They look kind of purple in certain kinds of light, I think I am going to have to paint them to match the truck. We took the truck to LSRU in Austin last year. Could not believe how many people liked the truck.

    I was curious how well they would hold color in the sunlight, powder coat might be your best route.
    Awesome!

    Our landspeed car. The nostalgia gasser Henry J we built was almost this much work. I have told Hooley that I will pick the car for our the next project.
