    Opinions on pin striping ? I think the tailgate needs the Ford and V8 done in Gloss Black , looks kinda plain ?

    Looking great! I really like the bent walnut piece highlighting the interior light! Very nice!

    I think some pinstripes would be good. You might ask your striper for ideas on colors. Someone who really knows colors might have ideas that really pop!

    Your p/u looks better and better with each post. I'm looking forward to the next photos. I agree with Roger. A pinstriper will have some great ideas about colors for pinstripes.

    I'll say times 3 on the above posts. The detail for the cab light is over the top! That's amazing. Pinstripes are like potato chips... you'll find it hard to stop adding once you see how it changes everything on the outside!

    The whole truck looks great, very well done! IMO pinstriping would really add to the whole look!

    I second how fantastic the wood work is. Well done!

    As to pinstripes, I turned my T-bucket over to a pinstriper I had known for years and trusted. He was an artist as much as a pinstriper. He said he had a few ideas that were different from mine, but as I said, I trusted him. He pinstriped the whole car in ways and places I would never have thought of. The overall effect was to absolutely enhance and finish the car. I never made any appearance changes after that. As I said, he was an artist and thought differently than I did.

    Go for it!

    I think it looks great as it is. Sometimes simple and clean go a long way. Pin stripes can be cool but I'd leave the ford sign as it. Great job

    I'd think that following Mike and Roger's advice would be the best bet...
    Just my 2 cents worth.
