I've always liked the design of the Austin. Would be a hell of a show for vending. You should have fun with this Thom.

Definately gloss black.
Black is the new silver. Or something.

Well everyone knows the Blue Austin cooks faster than the Black or Red Austin.

With a name like Austin, I agree with burnt orange as per above.
But, it sounds like you've got your preferences which is very cool.
Nice rig by the way.

(post timing mod, lag.)

All that bad boy needs is gun turret!! That thing is huge. It's a beauty too. I'm liking the copper color too. A fire engine red would really make it pop too.
Maybe yellow.........."We all Q on a yellow submarine, yellow submarine."

Nice project you have there Thom. Im thinking the OR Green would make her really standout and would be rather unique.

I wish I could jump on that, I love that color. I am curious what size is it?

Holy cow, what a beauty ! :eek:

How bout yellow and then calling her "yellow submarine" ?

Seriously, i think a glossy red would do good.

When I saw it I thought it looked like QN4U's. Is that a warming box on top or supplies?
Very nice score Thom!

Listen to Kyle and go Blue!

But then again all that diamond plate would would look nice wrapped in Duck Green, maybe you can get uncle Phil as a sponsor! Just do it!

I really side with the royal blue for an over all color , high gloss preferred of course, nothing makes diamond plate POP like blue. The floor area of the sink / counter I would go with a Gray with a sand added to aid in making it non slip and durable, perhaps one of the truck bed lining surface products. I would carry the same working floor surface into the inside of the wood box and tool cabinet and shelves. I might suggest a total revamp of the fenders to a matching diamond plate or chrome with Frenched in tail lights to avoid the tail light / shin injuries.

Electrical mods would really make this rock, with blue neon under body for that glow effect. if the counter has toe kicks neon there too would be perfect. 12 v led pucks wired in the cabinet would be great as would a few for the wood pile. led or quartz floods mounted on stainless goose necks would be great on the counter.

Or green is good too :mrgreen:

On second thought.... blue is cool.... I like blue too.

The main Chamber is 8 Foot long 6 shelf roto
The back box is a warming oven
we will make it a supply cabinet
like QN4U did
Their Southern Yankee(similar) is where we first cooked Competition BBQ
I fell in love with the rotisserie effect
