    Is it the M Gator?

    She got some stitches on her hood and fenders. I plan to use plastic welder to weld it, cut zip-ties on the outsides and sand smooth. Then use Raptor bedliner to spray underneath (since I have to spray it on the bed anyway). If it holds up well, I might do on the outsides as well. The...

    Is it the M Gator?

    I just started the tear down process. The front signal lights were broken. So they need to go and I don't think I will replace them. Tail lights are in the way of lifting the bed up and I cannot service engine easily. There is water dropping from the heater. There must be a leak or...
