    I am picking up a softtop from a fellow member and it is black.I dont think it will look right on my rig with all the white so I am thinking about painting the white parts black or possibly just changing up the entire paint scheme.heres a before and after using paint shop(dont laugh its all I got).Whats your opinions? Keep in mind it will have a black Fastrac soft top with tinted windows.

    Heck, I like it Blue and White. That is a very nice looking truck. I think a lift and some larger tires would really set it off. I'd have too keep the paint blue and white.

    I think you should paint the lower and metal roof the same blue as the rest of the truck..

    Watch for the muzzleflash!
    Maybe paint it a Klingon bird of prey gray, throw a cloking device lift on and add a bigger warp core and it would be sweet...At least thats what my Pontiac told me...

    I think the black and blue scheme would look really good on that truck. Maybe do the bottom black with Line-X?

    Maggot green? :rolleyes:

    Man, the blue/white combo looks so good............and it's rare too.............Use the black soft top for a while, then buy the replacement vinyl part in white! Your truck stands out right now, the good way!!! :wink1:

    Or do the full convertable conversion later with a new full white top!!! Yeah...........:D
