First attempt ever painting a car! We used a 45psi gravity feed spray gun from Harbor Freight! Cost was minimal! $30 spray gun $8 220 grit orbital sand paper $78 gallon paint, reducer, hardener from wholesale paint shop (GM semi-gloss Black) 48 hours of labor, sanding, removing parts, categorizing bolts, 4 coats of paint! $25. Rhino lined floors $20 vinyl black seat/dash spray used to refurbish soft top and dash! $40 seven yards of material, father re-upholsters for a living! Free labor and a few steaks on the grill, few crown and cokes! $20 spray can truck bed liner for fenders, bumpers, rock sliders! I will send pic of re-upholstered seats and refurbished top when seats are done!

Personally I'm a fan of pro comp alloys but I also like Mickey Thompsons. Tires wise, BFG ATs are a personal choice for me, good on and off road performance.

The baseball was my 16 yr old sons idea! We drilled with a 1/2" paddle bit, epoxy glued an nut and then drilled a small starter hole through the nut opening, it works great and the baseball is a large grip which I like!

When you shift, do you ever yell "Split Finger!" or "Two-Seam!"? I would actually consider the idea if I still played the game. I fish alot so maybe I will make my shifter a float or lure.
