    Yes, but I can't find any pics of mine. It's OK, I'll probably repaint it this summer with more flat black rattle can or something.

    It looks so good you'll wish you had a second can! And a third! Untill EVERYTHING around your house and truck and shop that needs paint gets flat black.

    I started off just satin black, but my daughter really wanted the flames.

    Holy cow! That flat black makes quite a difference!! It makes the rear panels before look like a regular truck bed after and it makes the bowtie grill look like a GMC!! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Well I didn't have it in me to paint that nice Chevy grille black, and yes, you could say some minor body mods were made.

    That is the same truck, though.

    The bed was blue and the cab that nasty yellow, now it looks like that.

    Although it was all white when I got it, it eventually became white, dark blue, flat black, and light blue...so out came the rattle cans.

    Hoping to finish mine this weekend. Doing everything from the door handles down (and the front 1/3 of the hood) in black Herculiner or Duraback. I'll post some pics when I do. I saw a Scout done head to toe in LineX and it was tough looking. Easy touch-up too.
