    Ok guys, before I show you my beauty. I need a few opinions. So while you're looking at the following pics, think about what I should do.

    1) The cab is in show room condition and the new dump and the painted undercarriage make this thing look AWESOME.... but the wheels are killing me! They're nasty gray and have some rust on them

    I don't want to buy new wheels b/c i just dropped a WAD on the dump, can I paint them? Any special type of paint? And what color!? I was thinking maybe black so I could roll night rider style. ?????

    2) I'd like to get a liner sprayed in the dump b/c I've seen how scratched up and rusty they can get. Rhino Liner quoted me $760 for 1/4 inch on the floor and 1/8 on the sides. Is this a good deal? Has anyone done it themselves with that spray on kit at Murrays. What's the best/cheapest way to go?

    Thanks guys.... it's now time for the feature presentation.

    there are two options really... you could buy a set of wheel simulators or spend a couple hours and just sand 'em and paint them with rustoleum white then gloss them to help keep the brake dust off. you could pick up a set of chrome lugnuts to go with it too.
