    Nice looking color, hard to find a green that looks good but that one sure does! Thanks for the update.

    Thanks man. Yeah the green made me a bit nervous because color can make or break your ride. I thought it was a nice green but once I shot the interior I went from 90 to 100 percent convinced that I picked the right color for the truck.

    Thanks buddy.

    And man do I know about choosing a color. I thought I would go insane when it came time to buy some paint.lol I would look at every car that went down the road and say "is that the color". I had my heart set on Atomic Orange (burnt orange) and started going to shows and started seeing so many orange trucks that I said to myself I can't paint it orange I want to be different. So I thought most people don't like green and I like a lot of greens, but metallic vs. solid and all that jazz. So I saw this color on a new scion and sprayed it on a test panel I said thats it. I have to make it work.lol

    Well I'm just saying I know your pain.lol

    You don't know what it is to love a car until you build one.

    I'm not sure how I missed this thread, but I just went through it from A to Z. You, sir, are a craftsman. Top end work there, Bam.

    Yeah parkwood you have jokes don't you.Ha Ha. You will not see the truck there but most likely I will be there. I'm going through a bit of car show withdrawals, I have the shakes I need to look at some cars.

    A buddy of mine came by and took some shots of the cab and his pics are better than mine (better camera also) and you can really see the color so I thought I would share.





    As far as what I'm working on now. That would be final mock up and fixing all those dreaded panel gaps before painting the cab.lol But I must be honest, I have not been doing much because of all the car shows I've been going to. This is car show season here and I've been making the rounds.lol

    Good color for the truck. Are you going with painted bumpers or chrome?
