Painted Stripes on the Ranger.

My truck is near completion, atleast the bed is. The bed is pretty much painted (viper graphite) and then i put two black stripes to resemble Elanor (mustang) now all i have to do is put clear coat on the bed and its done and ready to be masked to paint the cab. In the picture it looks shiney because its still tacky and not dry yet. ill get better day shots tmw or somthing, but this enough for now.

If you look at the stripe crossing the tailgate release, it looks like a Chevy bowtie! Looks good though.

Im gonna keep it like that, cuz it would distort the stripes if i was ti paint "OR" a different color. Plus to outline and mask off each letter would be a biatch and a half!!

lol yes that "bumper thingie" is made of 5 inch channel steel with 2x5 inch solid blacks fo steel for the brackets. it still has be adjusted a bit more before i can bolt it down....yep i said bolted down, the brackets are so tight on the frame that it would take a hammer to get it off. As for the cab lights they are fullu functional! https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ad.php?t=39545
