Was going to paint the body orange to match the knuckles and cover. Then decided I like the small amount of accent and going to paint it desert tan with everything else black and leave the knuckles/cover orange still.


If you don't stand behind our troops, feel free to stand in front of them.

New Mexico Driving Rules...
  • As a general rule, the vehicle most in need of a significant amount of bodywork (for which the driver is most likely uninsured) always has the right of way.
  • Never use directional signals when changing lanes. They only serve to give away your next move, causing most NM drivers to speed up and not let you in. In fact, use of directional signals within most large NM city limits is actual illegal.
  • NM law states that at least 50% of all paved surfaces within the state must be under construction at any one time. In all construction zones, at least half of the available lanes must be closed, regardless of whether any actual construction is be accomplished or not. Construction signs shall be regularly repositioned in order to warn drivers about upcoming lane closures immediately after they pass the last exit before traffic backups.
  • Driving through constructions zones with upcoming lane closures is a popular game in NM. Its called the "speed up and pass as many cars as you can, then see how close to the lane closure you can squeeze back into traffic before hitting any of the orange construction barrels" game.

He has the bumper anchored into the frame with the chain because everytime he's had to pull someone out or jerks on it too hard it tweaks the bumper out a little. There is just nowhere else to weld any other braces for it.
