    It's something like that...I bought the truck painted as it is. I have taken it to a few body shops to figure out the kind of paint job it is. I have been told by a custom body shop that it looks like whoever painted it, painted the first layer gold then a Candy paint on top of the gold. He said after time a lot of candy paints that's sprayed on over another paint job will seep in to the other paint. Hince why my truck's paint job looks the way it does. They told me if I were to get in an accident with the truck they wouldn't be able to duplicate the paint job on my truck. I asked them how much a Candy Apple Red paint job would cost if I needed to get the truck repainted they quoted me $7,500. Hopefully I wont need to do that though Lord willing.

    Well one of the reasons why I do not go any futher is becuase about 2 months ago someone did a hit and run while my van was parked outside the front of my house. They cause over 4G's worh of damage.(boo hoo) The whole back drive side got smashed in. The good thing is the kid was caught. The van also has seen better days, the thing is leaking trani fluid to name a few things. Thanks for the encouragement !!!

    I would not have known about HRC3 without the help of a friend, so I enjoy meeting, keeping in contact with all of the members. What inspired your mods to the jeep?

    Hi Gary, Thanks for the nice post on my profile. Your Mustang looks really great, some nice MODs too. I am just getting started tinkering with the Mach One. God Bless, Jon

    Hey Gary! Nice meeting you at Birney park! I checked out your website, and I'm very impressed. You do some awesome things with wood. Are you going to Advance Auto Parts Car Show on Sunday? It's on Columbus, and I'll be there at 9am with a few of the other guys from Bay City Rides. Hope to see you there! Are you on the forum yet? I didn't check yet, but if you're not, check it out. I've been trying to pull together a Michigan chapter for a long time, and maybe now we can get something going since you're right in town anyway! :) God bless you bro, and hope to see you on Sunday!
