tbh, not really feeling the interior at all, but the HIDs and your new front end look great.

x2.

It might look better without the white and a darker/deeper blue, but the pieces you painted just don't quite tie into each other IMO.

If you like yours, that's all that matters, right?

Idk... it just seems too random. Its almost like you said "well i like these colors, so lets take everything that comes off easily and paint it. And to hell if it doesn't match any other part of the truck..."

To the original poster, as long as YOU like the colors... that's all that matters. Looks like you did a pretty good job.

Now on to a Shameless thread hijack!

What type of paint are you folks using & where can I get some (online or auto parts store) to paint the armrests on your door panels??

I painted my door armrests LAST YEAR with krylon fusion & they were still sticky today! I spend the better part of the day with paint thinner & rags cleaning off the sticky mess.

Hijack over.

I think it was kinda dumb to do the floor rocker pieces... you are going to scratch those getting and then you'll be pissed.

Smakes.... you did well. I think the spray bomb job looks good. You look like you've sprayed a few rattle cans in your day. Maybe a little building, bridge, and railcar work in your past?? lol. BUT...I must say....it does look a little tacky to me. Alot of it looks out of place. Not very tasteful to my tongue. But as long as you like it, that's all that really matters.

and no ive never done mural work on buildings bridges or rail cars, i just have a metal shop teacher that taught me how to point a spray can and not ***** it up

and yea that blue is a little bright.

next on the list are the window cranks and the area around my speedo wich i cant figure out how to remove
