YUP,
I decided on "Dark Sarcasm" mainly because the original name is not appropriate here. ( Plus I couldn't afford the proper material to recover the seat with)

I will post pics after I resize them all. (Got to go visit MOM)
 
I'm not resizing all of the pics. (not gonna post all either) Most everybody has seen them but wanted to show a good idea of what I started with and where I'm at now.

Gastrick,
Been wanting to post these since day one. Now I know how to resize them and can do so.

Don,
I like the black better myself. When I went looking for paint, not only did I go for the cheapest, but wanted something easy. So I opted for a single stage, top coat (with flattner added). What i wasn't expecting was my lack of experience to make it even better. Bought a top feed spray gun from HF. (Still don't know how it is supposed to be adjusted) but the finished product has a "Matte" finish to it. It gives it texture and really a much different look.
 
Me too Bone,
It is all the nickle snd dime stuff that is holding me back right now. Pops and his baoo are cutting the wood for the bed.(that is going to save me 200.00 plus) Still need to get ALL new hardware and new runners too. I got a new website PM'ed to me from Inked monkey yesterday, all the stuff I need is only going to be 70.40 (plus whatever tax and shipping costs) so it might not be as far out as I originally thought.

I still need to resize some pics to post and plan on doing that later today.
 
Some more after paint.

I'm a resizeing fool today...

As you can tell, I just can't seem to get a good pic of the hood ornament. I wanted to use something like this to say it was a "Tuff Truck" (Mack dawgs are outrageous though) Peterbuilt was always tuff in my eyes as my Grandfather always drove Kenworth.

Enjoy!!!

Looking good!:cool: What are the switches for?

On your digital camera do you have a macro setting? It is usually marked with a small flower emblem. Then you can get really close to your emblem and it will focus.
 
The switches are just for decorations right now. Might put some lights on one. The other is going to be the arming switch for the "Little Red Button" that I mounted in the steering wheel.:D shhh...Don't tell them little rice burners....I want to put from 125 to 225 plate shot on there.

Don't know about the camera thing. Have to ask the boss about that one.
 
Red wheels!

Flatster,
U've got 2 paint u're wheels red with that red interior!

BoB

I've been thinking about that. I'm just not the kind of person that does the same thing that everyone else does. I want some red on the wheels, just not all. If I would have known you were going to PS one of those pics I would have pulled the beauty rings and the center caps. Been thinking about painting the wheel IN-sets black and the OUT-sets red. Like I said, just something different. (the PS looks good by the way)

Yeah, I think thats what I'm gonna do. Paint the wheels like that. Mainly because when I put the bed back together and get it back on the truck I had planned on painting the heads of all the bolts red as well. Just to give it a little more accant and attitude.
