July 8, 2006Well My truck got keyed by someone and I am extremely frustrated not to mention pissed off. I was planning on repainting it but no time soon! But at this point I am not sure if it is even worth spending that kind of money to repaint for fear of it happening again especially since its my daily driver and its always out there. To many haters and stupid people out here in LA. Well I guess that is everywhere! but I think I am going to just paint it straight black and leave it at that.... But right now i am upset but I am leaving and going out of country for a few weeks and when I return I will be thinking more rational I guess! But just in case any any ideas from the folks up here on a paint scheme with the Raider theme in mind still!. I have a couple ideas in which i was thinking about already! Smoke

July 8, 2006Sorry to hear that. Some people have no respect. Kris
July 8, 2006well, since you go by smoke, how bout jet black with some smoke shadows along the side or hood. nothing obvious, just some shadows or ghost like. i dunno, i saw something like that on pimp my ride or something. youre in LA, go to WCC for some ideas!! good luck. you could move back to Gainesville!! dont see that too much around here.
July 8, 2006What up Kris and Pnali? Thanks for the responses. Hey Kris Yeah that is correct people do not have any respect anymore. I do not know what this world is coming to. Well Pnali! that sounds pretty good. I kind like that idea. Even now i know i do not want a plain paint job.
Let me explain the name Smoke! Smoke is the job title i once held as a Platoon Sergeant in the US Army Field Artillery. In the Artillery on the gunline the Platoon Sergeant is called the Chief of Firing Battery (CFB) or the Chief of Smoke or just Smoke for short. so that is where the name Smoke came from! But I am open to all ideas... I am sitting here picturing you idea in my mind now! laters Smoke
PS.... Pnali I am headed down to gaines ville later on this year to visit family!
July 8, 2006Hate to hesr about your Paint alterations. But there are HATERS all over!
July 9, 2006sorry to hear that but if you do go straight black it will look awesome when its clean but we all know its sometimes a pain to keep clean.
July 9, 2006cool look me up. hey i know it wouldnt be cheap, but the same ghost stuff i was talking about above, but smoke colored flames. with a ride like that, and all the A/V in your ride, the ghost smoke colored flames would be just right.
July 9, 2006I was wondering if thats what smoke stood for. I was 3/8 FA out of Ft Bragg in the early stage of my military career. Sorry to hear about your run in with the haters.
July 9, 2006Thats sucks... I hate haters...
