no its going to be the same color....the only thing im up set about is that the paint for my truck cost so damn much...im trying to get my brother do paint my running boards the same color as the truck and do the hood and tail gate in a differnt color but he has three cars that need to get into the paint booth behind me....so who knows if every thing will get done that i want...

Nope it was dry....we pealed tape back and the color matchs almost perfect it sat in the booth and baked for awhile...we could of buffed it out tonight but we decited to wait till tomorow just to be safe....The thing that was wrong was i had a cb ball mounted on the side for the antenna....and i had brackets bolted to the top of the truck....The reason im doing all this is cause after i lift the truck im going to make it look a little more street.....
