Haven't gotten a line ticket for it yet. So I'm not positive if o came with an and straight six or the 304 ih v8. But I figure this isn't to blasphemous compared to what I could have done.

Finally got color on the girl. What I thought was a mismix of single stage blue turned out to be some sort of blurple. I love it. Other then I'm not even close to being good at spraying single stage metallics. First full vehicle job. Learned alot. Also should have used a better gun and had better lighting. But for a wheeler. I'm happy.

Looks like a great job of spraying for a first attempt. The guns make a huge difference.
