I'm 6'3", 310lbs. Had to get a wheel lol. As soon as I get seats, I'll get a HD DD, but for now I sit way too high, and have no support of my head.

Yeah it's definitely a good color. I'm still considering keeping it Mariner, but think I want to do something different

Keep it blue, put a black stripe on it.

If you want go "exotic", you can make it a metalflake / pearl / candy / ghost stripe.

Just kidding, nice reclamation project.

I always like NAs with a charcoal paint job. That said, unless you are going to strip everything and do the engine compartment and door jambs, etc.; stick with blue. Laguna is sweet but Mariner looks great with a tasteful stripe.

Sorry I couldn't make it to Rick's on the River that night. It would be good to meet you guys. I guess the weather was nice even though it was overcast.

For the love of God dude, don't paint it.
I'm killing myself trying to find a mariner, and you want to spray it!
