    Heres an update on colors from Jerry-06/06/16:
    Update

    I received the color samples and they look great I've found with this process that color matching powder to automotive paints is a PIA! The metallic colors more so top coat base coat film thickness all come into play when matching powders to wet paint.
    After many samples tossed in the trash I'm 99% satisfied with the results and have approved all the colors and they are going into production and we should have them soon.

    That said we just returned from MOAB at rock therapy and are starting to build as many as we can. We will be shipping about 10 to 20 at a time as they are coated "20 took two employees a 10 hour day just to assemble and pack up for shipping to give you an idea on the time it takes". So in the next two to three weeks most if not all of the first sale orders will be shipped then the other late orders will start going out.

    We just ordered another 50 5'x10' sheets of material to start pre cutting a ton of them so hopefully we can start stocking these if the orders ever slow down but I'm not complaining if they don't!

    I'd like to see stamped lettering that matches the tail gate.
