Thanks.. My neighbor did the spraying. My first time doing any major sanding, so, there are some imperfections.

I'll post a pic from the rear when I get the new tail lights installed.

You know, this might sound weird, but I liked that color green on your truck.

It suits the period and body line of the truck imho.
