    Have owned A whole bunch of jeeps, trucks and armor. Still have a few.

    I love my carbon footprint and no I don't own a Toyota.

    Finally found the correct yellow for the markings on a strata blue AF truck. It is FS33538 It is covered by MIL-STD-808A. Which is a updated MIL-STD-808 document from December 1960. I Down loaded the A version to verify the data. Info is located near the bottom of the web page listed below..

    Here are a couple of pics of the truck. As you can see there are spots that need touch-up, always are it seems. Also I need to do the undercoating, axle painting, new wipers and new seat covers etc.. I think I have beaten out the cold weather so far as it has been in the upper 40s and 50s lately in the morning. I have a barrel stove in the pole barn that works well but do not feel comfortable starting it up when doing a large paint job.

    Sweet job. Nice touch on the glove box lock, but are you sure that is a GSA High Security padlock? Snuffy will be in that in two shakes if it's only a brass padlock.

    You guys are right. Snuffy can get into the glove box in a quick moment. Heck if he has his big brother "cool dude" with him he can start and have the whole truck in less time than it would take him to figure out how the get into the glove box.
