I would have done a fade of some sort, it also appears your masking bleed in a few spots, but its a learning curve my friend, you'll get better each and every paint job you do. good job overall, no numbers?

The bleeding was a bummer when I first saw it starting. Should have used better tape than regular masking tape. Also the glossy black is WAY thinner than the flat black. The flat may not have bled at all being thicker. Once I saw the way it looked bled though I kind of liked it. Gives it a rough kind of grunge look. No numbers though. I dont really race. So numbers were kind of irrelevant. I would love to find a track near by (off road) to race at. All the ones I have seen links posted to locally are old and closed down (bummer). There is one about 45 minutes north of here but its a members only track and they only race for fun. Who knows maybe I'll join up.

Thanks for the comments

cut a beer can and glue the label on your car for added performance j/k
I would have thought a fade from indy silver to balck with a fade of your green to white wouolda looked nicer.

There was a rough draft on paper with a couple different fades before deciding the sharp contrast was what I wanted. To each his own I suppose.

I think this belongs in the Paint and Body section of the forum.

Sounds like I am in the right place to post about an off road truck especially considering it is a GENERAL discussion
