Since I was making the bottom of bed and cab black, I thought this would look really good. Engine is gonna be a little darker silver(easier to find leaks) with Purple and drak grey accents. Interior is gonna be a stockish grey with seats getting redone with all three colors of accents that are present on the truck so far.

Some assembly done. Really thinking about having all the hardware cleaned and zinc coated. I tried light coats of primer and paint but to only chip when tools were applied to each bolt or nut.
