Thanks Wydir! Working on the bedsides right now.
Had a very clean one just shipped to me from TX a couple weeks ago. Had it blasted, and now in primer.
Went in today (SUN) to work on the other sides.

If you dont mind me asking, What paint did you use, Love that color.

Is it a factory code ? or Custom mix?

August Updates

Concentrated on the bedsides and the rear bumper.
Had to replace the inner panel of one of the bedsides. The left bedside was in excellent condition.

October Updates (2)

The tailgate is on!!! Just in the nick of time. First show I did not have a tailgate on. The second show, I installed it about an hours before I went to the show.

First show - Quaker Steak and Lube October 16 - took Best of Show in my class (60-70 cars and trucks)
Second show October 23, 2011 - took Best of Show out of 151 cars and trucks

Also got a photo shoot for either Truckin or Street Truck magazine
The last two pics show the photographer, and the pic that he took. The last pic is what he called a vertical picture, when he said are pics for the front cover of a magazine. We'll see

Well, I thought I was done. One more addition. A Gaylords cover
Fits perfect. Remote lock. No bolts needed. Sure keeps the bed wood clean now!

Thanks!! Can't wait to see it myself. Hope I can find an issue...or 10.
Custom Classic Truck Mag is kind of hard to find around here!

I found out my truck has a 7 page feature in Classic Custom Truck Magazine.
Still can't find the magazine, but I found it online and have 10 issues coming (February, 2012)
:bigokay:
I heard I have 7 pages including the front "Contents" pages (2) along with 2 other double pages and a single page.
My first feature (I have 4 show worthy trucks)
COOL!

Green ford focus

Hi Taz, i've just brought a used 2000 green ford focus with a zetec engine on the net from Japan. Gettin it in a months time. I do not like the stock green but have to keep the car green due to stiff regulations here on color change. I like your lime green on your truck. I would like your help on getting a similar shade for my car. I want it lime green and when hit by the sun should show some yellow-gold in it. Please just remember that here in Zambia, I can only order powder pearls online from the states to mix in clear that i can buy locally. I can't buy liquid paint online. So your advise must concentrate on dry pearls. TCP global stock HOK, PPG and kustom shop pearls and flakes. Any ideas what would be close to what i'm looking for? Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi Victor1
Tough question...not for sure on this. Do you have any pics of your current paint job. Did you plan on just using your current paint job as the base for the paint job. Then alter it with pearls over it?
