Nice Detroit/IH V800!!! ;) Kiddings aside, this is looking really good! I never thought light green, orange and red would look good together, but they do! Good project, I'll be watching this.

thanks...i didn't think so ether ..i had just planed on pumpkin orange for the frame & fenders,cherry red for the cab+hood,and red toned down with a matte clear coat for wheels,winch-tower and the bed ...the cherry red didn't look good at all with the orange..so i re shot it with the Alpine green (Detroit green)..i like the way it turned out also..
