Just what every man wants to hear about his truck. I corrected her and told her that it is cool, NOT cute. I will post some pictures of my truck just as soon as I get some. Come on spring, so we can get the party started!
If by "fire engine red" Chrysler's FLAME Red, I had 2 vehicles that were that color...and the color held up to the elements very well (parked outside..no shade).. NO fading (other than the fiberglass/plastic pieces) ,, NO cracking, No clear peel etc. The older of the 2 was a '95 Jeep GC I sold 2 yrs ago with..180K milage on it...buyer asked If the vehicle was repainted as it held up so well. (I did washed from time to time.and polished with Mothers California Gold 3 step process twice a year,, Maybe that made the difference? )
Good luck with your vehicle.
