Very nice :) Do you want to do mine this winter :?: Is that a decal on the trunk or your own artwork?

Very pretty! Nice choice, works great with the chrome. I plan on doing mine and also my father's this winter as well. Gonna be a metallic black base with blue pearl accent.

I like it, I think you did a great job on it....Thank you for posting it....I'm considering repainting mine too, but I just bought a bunch of shiny stuff like you have there...It's gotta wait.. Are those bullet holes on the rear box..? Man...who did you upset...? :lol:
