Fan shroud color

Postby cstaup » February 6th, 2008, 9:05 pm

What color should it be? I'm thinkin black.

I'm priming it in my garage as I type, (multitasking, to the extreme).

So far most of the motor bit are going to be gloss black. I know, I know...but it's my MUTT.

I will certainly POP! I look at Baios for inspiration. Any other bling pics out there? :wink:

I was going to ask, What bolt pattern are you guy's using? I would like to pick up a set of junkyard rims to put street tires on for around town cruising. The NDCC's are great for shows but are not worth the powder to blow them to hell on the street and I don't care if the military has used them since the dawn of time!

These wheels are from my old Ford 1/2 ton, most Rangers have a smaller bolt pattern and even with the full size truck wheels you need the ones off a 4X4 or the center hole will be too small, the wheels are from a 1988 F-150 2 wheel drive and are just for moving the Mutt around the yard and into the shop but as rickf said I also will have a nice set of wheels on it for driving around town when it is up and running. If memory serves me right Dodge wheels will fit also as I think that is what I used on the 4X4 Vega I built back in the 70s out of a rolled Mutt I picked up when I was living in Colorado.

Great hijack Mr. Recovery :wink: . Back to the point, thanks for the replies, I've painted it gloss black with the appropriate wet sanding, to match the proposed engine resto.

Mr R.

I live in an area with a lot of "rednecks" and if you drove that around here, you would be worshipped as a hero. :roll: One guy I know once (back in the early 80's) built a chevy el camino into a big jacked up 4 wheel drive with moster mudder tires. Not to be outdone, one of his friends did it with a 1966 Mustang. Basically 2 very beautiful collector cars (not the case with a vega) were ruined in the process.
