U better ****** 'em up if you are wanting to do a resto. Personally that is the only thing faggoty about the "nite" is those damn "purple/pink decals. I stripped mine off. To each his own. If you are going to "black out" a truck...why put purple decals on it? Our Ford dollars at work. I am in the proccess of taking ALL decals off mine and doing a repaint in satin "Rat-Rod Black"....IMO..I hate a shiny truck (if you are going to use it) Best of luck to you!!
