    I wish I can go all out! This truck would be laying frame with some super wide wheels kissing the fenders. Since I still have 2 years of payments left, this will do for now.

    Not a fan of any orange. If you're talking about the pictures of the bumper and hood I posted, that is just the first coat of base. It looks like a brownish orange in person.

    If you look a couple pages back in this thread, it is the Noble Spinel Mica from the Lexus LS460. In the shade it looks like a dark burgandy, but when it hits the sun, the pearl looks stunning. Those pics don't do justice. After making a trip to the dealer, I was set on the color. At first I was going to buy the traditional Candy Apple Red but my painter suggested a factory 3-stage red paint and saved me half the cost of PPG's Vibrance Line. There was another red from Lexus that was close to candy apple, the matador red mica, but I didn't like how it looked like bright red lipstick at some angles.

    NICE! a roll pan was my next step before i sold it:(

    its going to be a killer clean shaven taco! cant wait to see it man!!!

    Just stopped by the shop to take some updated pictures. They were so busy my truck was on hold for a week or two before they started on the custom body work but I'm okay with it since I told them to take their time on this. I want it to come out perfect and so far everything is looking great.

    All the exterior pieces were sprayed with the base coat, then the rest of the truck before the pearl and clear process. I'll have more photos up next week.
