My next one will either be Blue Jean metallic or black probably. I like white but I like those better

We’ll see. I’ll have to admit black was not on my list, but when I saw it I wanted it.

i know the feeling.

mp '99, PSD, was the first in northern Calif. it was jet black and LOOKED awesome, when it was clean...:laughing:

but, talk about a hot SOB...even on a cool day on the coast the interior cab temp you could bake bread.

black was also VERY DIFFICULT to keep clean...

also lots of buffing to get rid of minor scratches like from bushes etc...

A buddy of mine asked me what color he should paint his van. I took some mud and threw it on his van and told him when it dries paint it that color.

And he did.

Mines black and when its waxed nothing nicer than that deep mirror finish
Mine is hardly ever completely polished up, but the few times it is, it's worth it to see that shine:thumbsup:

I’ve been seeing a lot of new mud colored Toyota trucks lately, I like the color.

If its hot out (100) I like it to have a few minutes . On site visit day it doesn't turn off much, just leave it running during the summer.

I think NJ's allows 3 minutes or something like that. I'm sure it happens, but I've never heard of someone getting ticketed for it
