    I just snatched this baby up from a gov'ment auction for [mad cheap]. It was a former Border Patrol vehicle and I've posted about it before, however I finally have the scratch to paint it and trick it out as I like.

    Just a rundown, I'd like to take the rubber floor liner out and replace it with a truck-bed liner. Not the jagged Herculiner crap, some fine Rhinoliner. I just love the texture of good ole Rhino skinz. As well I'm going to coat the bed and "running boards." In the end, the outside will match the interior. Flat Desert Tan with a gray/charcoal Rhinoliner bottom. Basically desert two-tone. I may paint the wheels, but I can't find a color that would show off their steel steeliness.

    So, I'm asking as a sort of favor for Photoshop artists (or whatever editor you use) to paint mah baybeh. I'd like to see it with my specified colors, but you could create whatever you like and share it.

    T'anks a tonz.

    What about a cream-coloured grille, and then maybe some sort of darker colour for the truck body.

    <3 this

    I wanted the accents to be the charcoal and the body to be the tan because I love the interior color scheme.

    I'd imagine it's where they sell off their surplus stock or something. Such as this truck.

    Indeed. This is what it looked like before.

    It would sure be badass to drive around in that truck, it'd be like driving a police car and a hearse at the same time!

    IMO you can never go wrong with ferrari red.

    I say paint the majority of it a forest green with lower portion being a beige, and if you had the extra cash, their is a real heavy duty military looking beige ram guard that I have seen on an excursion that would make it look awesome.

    Just my 2cents

    I'd paint it to resemble how it used to look, then drive around and sit outside places and watch people run :D
