THAT THING (EL PUERCO) IS COOL!, I like to paint even though I'm not very good usually takes alot of color sanding when I'm done.

have you checked out the mopar paint w2ebsite? it should be referenced in the paint thread here. guy basically took regular paint, thinned it and rolled it on and looked great. no spraying required (although a bunch of cruiserheads have sprayed using the same theory)

go for t!

That's cool:)

I had the same sort of thing happen in Grand Turk (Carribean) on vacation.

Rented a rail buggy, and as soon as I hit the trail...*snap!* there goes the cable:(

Fix it with a string that's (already) in the buggy *(geez-wonder why?:rolleyes:), go about 50 yards....*snap!* again:lol:

Finally, wrapped the hand with a shirt, reached over my shoulder (rear engined V-Dub powered), grabbed a handfull of throttle cable, and did the infamous "watch this" (no neer to hold:lol:)...and off to the races:D
