Im not sure. Im going to paint them so I wanted the powder coated ones. Just have not made up my mind. Leave on the black stripes and paint them black. Remove the stripes and paint them a dark gold with a flat clear for that WRX look.

My boys are wanting me to change the color. I have to paint some on it , but I guess I have gotten lazy. A color change just doesnt sound like much fun anymore. I can have it all apart and trimmed in in a weekend and painted and back together in a couple of days. I cant tell you how many chrome yellow chevy work trucks I have changed the color on and turned into Silverados. I built trucks and totals for 8 years.

Did they make a orange R/T?

I still have this formula. Some ass wipe scratched up this guys car @ a car show.

I don't think they make any Ram in that ^ color orange. Are you thinking of repainting the truck? I think it would look sweet in that color!

My boys are screaming paint it DAD. Two are in Wyotech right now the other two said they would "help" .

It would not be that hard. I have to already paint the rt bedside, tail gate and grille. The worst part is under the hood. I can pull it all apart and trim it in with single stage then shoot the outside base clear. It would kill the trade in value to change the color no matter how good it looks.

The lines are all wrong for a two tone or I would do that. The idea of flames in pearl is out for the same reason.

this would be the easy way out. paint the wheels to match the stripes for a 70's retro.

Hey Satin, how do the door jams and under the hood and tail gate hinge area turn out with the wrap?

The tailgate is smooth due to being shaved and handle relocated (pic below). The wrap goes about 3 inches into the door jam but the paint is satin black so i think it adds a nice blending. the underhood was not done which was by choice. The only issue is some tears on the lower from bumper but i was expecting that cause for being lowered and living on miles of dirt roads. Holding up great though for almost 2 years.
