    That's a good choice for the IH idi's. I wanded, if it was a IH color. I all ways wanted to paint mine IH red, but the old IH blue's would be a better choice for the trucks. Keep puging away it will get there one day. I have so many things to do to my old blue to get it back where I want it to be. Water separater relocation on the frame, hydro boost install, a/c up grade, and the 088 ats install. The only thing is I don't have the time to do all this as I'M try to get my house fixed up to sell it,may maybe then I will have the money to get it done. I have the part just not the time.

    Dieselcrawler and I kinda swapped engines and then freshened them both up, lol! It wasn't planned that way at first, but that's what happened, haha! Lookin' good though man! I have a feeling she will be breathing life again soon enough!

    Almost three years inside my attached 2 bay garage. Amazed how much dust it has. The frame is actually painted black. Just dust on it from no front clip for that long
