I’ve had a 13 sitting around gathering dust for a few years now so I’ve decided to wipe the dust off and give it a new look. I scuffed up the lid not long after getting it and I’ve always wanted to fix it. I’ve worked with heavy machinery for the past 12 years so I thought a CAT inspired paint job could look good. She’ll get a CAT yellow spray and I’ll either get some CAT decals from my CAT rep or I’ll make some stencils and paint the logo on. Just stripped the 13 down today.

Need to clean up a little bit of paint leach on the black bits but it’s ready to put back together

Well it’s all back together (after a mild heart attack due to an 8 beep code which was just me not plugging the LCD cable in properly). I still need to clean up some edges and get some CAT decals.
