Looking for pictures of a dark grey/gunmetal canopy!!!

If you have a silver truck with a gunmetal or dark grey/silver canopy I would like to see some pics. I want to paint my canopy a darker color but want to see what it looks like first. I will probably have the rockers done in line-x that is matched to the darker canopy after. Thanks!

Pics of dark grey/gunmetal canopy

Who ever closed this thread before please dont do it again, I know its the wrong place but way more people view the General Forum than the exterior one. I just want to see what a gunmetal type colored canopy looks like on a silver Ranger before I have mine painted which I want to do ASAP. Its just one thread, please let somebody respond.

Why are you painting your cap a different color than the truck.

There is a dark grey canopy on a black truck. Might give you some idea of what it could look like.

Wow. You would probably be the first person I know that wants to intentionally paint the canopy a different color so that it doesn't match....
Doing something just for the sake of being different isn't always a good thing.

Yeah, i dont know what it will look like but i think if you do the rockers too it will look decent.



If you can imagine a cap that matches the rockers on tys 4x4 FTW's truck, i think that could look nice.

I think it would look extremely out of place. Theres a f150 around here with the tan trim like mine with the blue body and it has a tan topper, it looks like poo.

Well, there are no pictures of that exact thing, so go do it yourself and take pictures.

If you don't like peoples opinions then don't ask for them.
