Kool rig. For a second there I thought the wooden shed behind it was on the back half of the frame when the picture was loading . Does the current paint have any pearl or metallic in it?

I think your rig would look good with a similar two-tone solid Hot Rod white & Pearl maroon or Pearl white and solid maroon. I actually asked my old instructor about restoring a regular cab while I was in school to bring to the car show the college has every year. Too bad I didn't have the time!

Thanks !!The metalic in the maroon seems to have a tiny bit of gold pearl in it , the clear peeled off the hood before I got the truck . the origonal color was dark rose grey metalic so we will prolly go back to that when the time comes

Kool, There was an old Kentworth in the shop at school too that had been repainted a dark smoke gray with blue pinstriping. I had a kustom color whipped up at the local parts store. It was a very dark green, almost black with 3 different pearls in it.

I remember my cousin said he painted a 60s Ford galaxy with a basecoast of baby blue or robbins egg blue type of deal with a clear that changed colors from blue to a violet I think. I should have bought it from him!!!!
