I am going to paint it the original red, I'm not sure yet on the flares...gray or black.

Thanks, I don't want to deal with the adhesive on the emblems so I just masked them.

I would really reccomend taking everything off you can.. never looks as clean when you mask around the locks and emblems.. IMO I would take off the emblem, putting them back on is as simple as some 3m double sided tape. and the locks are pretty easily removed too, even the handles.. just really cleans things up.. Just a suggestion though.

I decided to use the edge front on the black truck altough now I kinda wish I would have left it on this one. I think it looks better red(the edge front end) but I'm not changing it back...lol. Painted the jams this evening. Not sure if I'm painting tommorrow or sunday.
