    I'm digging it man!
    The only thing I don't like about this mold is the headlights...you can see the dark spots where they tab in, and it always takes my eye away from the rest of the mold....I always take them out, cut the tabs off of the lenses, paint them from the back and re-insert...I mean there's a million ways to do it up, but those dark spots bother me.
    Your paint is really great! It looks very smooth and even...I never thought of doing local stuff...maybe a MNDOT snow plow? Winter will be here soon my friend!

    Looks awesome! I really dig the mold and any love sent its way like this is awesome. I'm looking forward to how you're going to complete the orange interior.

    I do think it is MNDOT orange - but for a true snowplow, don't we need either Snow Cat or TFA Sentinel Prime?

    Orange head - but would that go well with the blue light piping?

    Thanks a lot, now, man. Drove by the airport yesterday and I can't think of the orange alert sign without thinking of your project.

    This looks killer. Perhaps some black accents to bring out the orange some more? Or is it just the Halloween decs I see everywhere? I like how the black works on Sideswipe - what do you think?
