The tailgate is getting a color change so I pulled the latches and cables off so I don't have to mask them. A bungee cord is holding it closed.

you weren't kidding about the 3 tone

sucks about that rust under the visor though. It almost makes me think of how rusty those 90's pontiac grand am's would be if you took the ugly plastic cladding off the sides of the doors.

It's starting to really come together now

Whatever shade it is, I'm sure it's gonna be a pretty unique truck. I still think you should paint one of your project trucks in the Dark Stone color found on Crown Vic's and F-series trucks. It's almost a tabacco brown that sometimes looks brown, sometimes super dark grey, sometimes super dark green. It's one neat......spendy color I assume. lol.

Good progress. I always get a kick out of your build threads. One day I hope to fix up just one truck like you do. And I'll paint it that Kia orangish/Bright Amber of truck #20. lol.

Its a little darker than the escort. Actually I've been thinking of painting one brown. Its a color you don't see on rangers. When I replaced the tailgate on #20 I had then match the color and a kia color came up. It was cheaper and looked the same.

Yeah....I remembered that Kia cheaper color match. lol. Dark Stone aka Charcoal Beige Metallic Clearcoat (2005 code T7) is right here....Zabeard's old F150 was that color and I freakin' love it. Though I sorta think gray interior wouldn't work too well so tan's the only option. lol.



Ok....sorry for steering your build thread away from the build truck and to a future truck. lol.

Now...back on topic...


When you do a bed swap like that, do you usually spray the inside of the bed with body color or do you do something cheaper like a roll-on bedliner or....?? I know spray-in is sorta out of question and not worth your investment.

Well thats the delima right now. I might go with the roll in, like you said cheaper. I could just throw in a liner but I'm not sure yet. I don't want to use the old liner because the front was cut off.

A little update... I pulled the bed back off to paint the frame and front of the bed. While it was off I went ahead and painted inside the bed since the bedliner was cut and ruined...
