    My friends nicknamed the truck polar bear because it was white and the truck would go anywhere we wheel. I am 90% finished re-building it. Added a lot of mods to this truck. Time to find another name for it. Are polar bears ever brown?
    I just started painting it the other day. Just wanted to post some pictures of it.
    Here ya go...

    I'd take the easiest route and just paint it white, because it'll drive just as good in white as any other color, and it's cheap.

    By the way, do I see a missing left-front lug nut/wheel stud?

    O.J. drove a white truck. Paint it green or some other flat colored earth tone. If your doing it yourself, there's a lot more room for error.

    I am painting with rustoleum textured paint. It leaves a sandy textured finish. The color is desert bisque. With this paint it allows for imperfections.
