    Well I can't hold off much longer I can't stand looking at it. I'll be painting it med blue (XO-Rust) and Running an almond two tone like original. NOw I will be putting bed liner on the lower section no problem there. However, I'm tired of doing body work on that rear Quarter + other spots. And the doors have some isssues. I'm thinking of running the bed liner up to the upper molding. Still running and two tone. Cause I know it will be scratched, I just want it to look 20/20 (20ft and 20mph)

    This will be a DD and hinting rig and mild trail rider. I'm pretty anal, Ive spent 10x more time that I should have on the body. Looking for some thoughts from the group. I know some folks don't like the bedliner thing. So will I be sorry if I do it. Or just suck it up and wretch over the lousy body job.

    flat camou will hide most of the imperfections and will be cheap to touch up

    Well I promissed the boy I'd paint it blue. It's hard to argue with your 5yr old namesake.

    I thought flat tan, and black although cool way to hot, been there.

    Those are the tires I'll be running I havn't decide a. stock 1" B. zero rate F/R . or C . 4" rc lift

    Dont worry to much about the rhino liner, it comes out pretty nice. Just make sure the prep work has been done correctly for it, and if its available, spray it on. The roll on method doenst come out quite as nice as the spray.

    Well I'm getting closer. I had an accident with some tape so I had to re-shoot that area.

    I have my thick skin on so... I shot it with a wagner power sprayer. Not only that but I purposely shot it with an orange peel look. (not as easy as it sounds). I really dig it. It has the same texture as some of the industrial tools where I work.

    I had it all blue, but I really like the almond stripe and honestly it was a little too blue for me. Another reason it distracts the eye from the crappy body work. I have a tan interior it kinda brings it all in.
