    oK sounds good. Did you use a spray gun or is it done by spray cans.

    Did you have stock paint on it before it or did you sandblast it off? What did you do to prep it before you painted it? Does it scratch of easy. All the can spray paint I have ever used always scratchs off every time you bang it with s

    i had it sanded down alot, bare metal in some places, because i had a friend who was going to paint it blue for me but he moved. it seams pritty tough so far. i had a chair back against the door to get the front part of the roof and it didnt scratch. its basicaly a teporary fix for the winter. next summer ill lightly sand it and give it a few more coats. i already had a guy tell me once i get it the way i want it he can clear coat it with a satin clear but i dont know if ill do that. the way it is i can always touch it up now and again. its funny when it was sanded i would watch people in town and hardly nobody looked twice at me now they seam to break their necks looking. i only know of 1 other camo truck in my town and its an old military truck and looks to be a farmers truck cuz its always got mud on it and hay in the back and a lot of body damnage. i wasnt sure i would like it but the feed back has been very positive people always say they like the chrome on camo look it has and they are glad i didnt camo everything

    Paint came out well -- I'd keep it that way, but then I'm weird about camo (three out of four of my fullsizes are camo :) )

    Not a big fan of the pre-runner bumpers, but from the limited pix that the headache rack look good. Makes me wanna do a headache my pickemup...
