Hi guys! i've been a member at plowsite for awhile..and after spending all day working on the yard today i thought i'd join over here since its finally summer up here in the great white north!


so alittle backround..i'm 19 graduated HS a few days ago. i own my own car detailing biz i've been doing since i was 13-14 have a very big clientel(sp) now.

i own 4 ford explorers and a '91 f-250 that i painted last fall. i then painted the explorer this march.

so its was 67* here today i decided to get started on the yard, it was a mess from winter..tons of leaves and alot of branches and crap...6 truck loads later i was done with the front of the yard. i then cleaned the patio and cleaned the garden of weeds and fertalized and added some grass seed. but i thought i'd take some pics for ya'll :)

I have always wanted to try painting a truck. But I know I would never like the way it would turn out:laugh: does that thing have a clear coat?

whoa damn you did a good job man. That looks like the 250 just came off the assembly line. When people talk about painting cars I always hold my breath because only a few people can get them looking like a factory paint job.

Snap some under the hood pics and interior, if you don't mind, I like those old fords
