    yeah x3. The way it looks now it should be in the WTF thread. Paint looks shitty, strip down the side looks shitty, miss matched emblem looks shitty, chrome wheels look shitty (and of coarse this is just my opinion) BUT if its not done then its all good because there is still hope! ;)

    and im curious . . . . . . . if u know the truck is in the "works" stages and potentially will look 1000 times better when completed then why would u make a thread stating uve done some work to it and ask how everyone likes it then when negative things are stated about it u defend it by saying its not completed yet and yall can think what u want!? Again im just curious . . . . . . (breaking no TW laws that i know of)

    Because i am curious of what you all think, im not defending myself.. the truck does look like garbage i agree. As you all speake your mind i get raw uncensored information on what i can do to change it and get it back to a good looking truck. I like the black stripe and hate the chrome rims. Didnt think about the emblem much but glad it was pointed out, a matching front bumper would probably look better and when it goes in again ill have them change that.

    I dont want people to be like oh its in the works so it looks okay when i know it looks like crap. I wanted the harsh comments i would have never made it in the army if i couldnt take someone being honest no matter how harsh the truth is.

    So thank you every one for the comments i really do appreciate it. Its all good info and suggestions

    That's all well and good, but we want to see a photo of that ex. ;)

    What I gather is you're looking for constructive criticism, not Looks like my gma's ass! WTFs wrong wif u? Frankly, I'd be much more concerned about any mechanical issues that need to be addressed, or mods to that end, than making it pretty. If you're happy with that part of the equation, clean it up to where you want it to be.

    Yeah I pretty much missed that. I thought the green was an access cab clearly I did not see the big green door in the back. Its camouflaged.

    i hear ya man. My suggestions, keep the color, if u like it, just finish the paint. Get some black or dark bronze wheels and color match or remove the grill emblem.

    I don't think this is all that bad. Sure its not a $10,000 paint job but it's also not a rust bucket. I like the idea of the stripe down the side.

    I say good work OP! A little tweaking and this will be a good looking truck.

    That's good... but in the future, if you're OK with raw and uncensored, don't come off as butthurt as you did here:

    Wish you the best in your repairs :thumbsup:
