I finally did it! Capped

Well I found a leer canopy that I wanted. It's one of the top of the line model's that leer makes. It is only one year old, it came off a 2010. It was well worth the drive to get it, just wished i took some pictures on the drive.(1600km) I do have some plans for it.
Some plans are:
-Bed rug
-Limo tint all the way around and get the top part of the tail gate 3m filmed
-Night shade 3rd brake light
-custom interior lighting

Enjoy

Thanks guys, it was 1600 round trip. I did get a really good price on the cap, thats why for the road trip. I am also thinking of leaving it black too. I presonaly thinking with it red, it will be to much red if that makes sense. Lol. I also plan on getting black headlight housings and corners. In the future I am going to also get a black western push bar.

I have thought about getting a topper. So much more space but I'm not a huge fan of the look. None the less it looks good. Get it color matched!

Nice. Looks good. It doesn't look bad black, but would look better color matched. I wish my Ranger was that red color!!!!!

A DSG truck wtih a black topper/wheels would look **** IMO

MATCH IT!! It's gonna look awesome and you'll love it!! If she's not painted, she looks out of place. Good deal on getting one with the Thule rack already installed.


And when you do get it painted, have the painter scuff and shoot the inside with dark gray or black sealer. I had them do that to my Leer 100R (same canopy as yours) and I absolutely love it! Makes for a far cleaner look instead of the bare white fiberglass while still being able to hose the back out if needed. Carpet is gross.


By the way....AWESOME truck!! If I ever got a newer ranger, it would be a Toreador Sport.

I vote YES on black headlights and '06 corners.


And I know it's not a photoshop but use some imagination....









In conclusion, you're truck looks HOT! It's gonna look hotter with a Toreador Red cap!!

like shane said I think painting the inside could look good but I'm not sure I'd like a real dark color especially if you are going to be in it. I think it could be a little hard to see.

I think some of this trunk spatter paint could look good and the spatter would hide a lot of extra mess too. It's what I plan on trying when I get my topper

Interior paint color doesn't change inside temperature much (if anything at all)...


You'll need quite a bit of splatter paint 'cause it doesn't cover too well. I used a Rust Oleum version of what you linked and even purchased 4 cans(at $10.50 US a pop!). I used one up on one corner of the inside of the canopy. It was far cheaper and far easier and a far cleaner end result to just let my painter shoot sealer to mask the white uglyness. Tiger stripes were a problem with rattle cans on such a large flat surface.



Best I can do for now. Paint makes a world of difference for appearence...esp on a dark colored truck like mine and the OP's. Granted there are no windows in the pics, but these will give a good general idea on the outcome.

Thanks guys. The Thule rack is also another reason why I got it. I also think you guys have convinced me to paint it, but it wont be for a while. Winter at the earliest, I want to get some other mods done first. Thanks for the photoshop mike. Thanks for the complaint also shane, it was your truck that has always convinced me to lift, always loved your truck.

You're welcome for the complaint. I can't stand your truck....it's so ugly. If it were a girl, I wouldn't touch it with a 24 pack of Trojans on at the same time, while intoxicated after a fifth of Jack Daniel Tennessee Honey. *sarcasm*

Thanks for the compliments about mine!





But back to point though, seriously go out and find yourself some paint quotes. Word of mouth got me a good local painter who did mine for $175 with a 2 day turn-around time. Inside and out. Guy who did mine does it as a side gig for extra cash...but his daily job is at a body shop. Not too shabby of a price for a picky metallic like mine and yours. I forsee this being done sooner than "winter". haha.

And below are more pics of my sealer painted interior if you were interested...
