    That looks like a simmiler color to what I need to match on this next truck. Looks good.

    What color is it?
    How much did you use?

    I still liked the Tan and White , looked Earthy and tough . But I am a little biased I guess . I like it the new color though , and I am still likely going to be the only one this color on a run /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    specs on the truck...


    305 crate, hydro sm465, 205 non slip yoke, 1 ton eaten rear locked, d44 locked, 6 inch all spring lift and 36 inch tsl radials...


    as for the paint...it was contaminated so it turned out like crap, should be bright red pearl, I got a great deal on it since it was already mixed


    paint was a 4:1:1 so I used a little over 1/2 a gallon after adding in the harner and reducer. I also used a primer and sealer.


    hood is from ricks pick up parts, but I forget what size it is, I think 2 inches /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Hey shawn, put the pearl over it, and it will be a brighter red. Pearl is expensive. Pearl is a three step paint. color, pearl, clear.
