    Just got my truck back from the body shop. Had tailgate, brake lights, 3rd brake, and doors shaved. French in a tag box and a pair of LED taillights. I think it's pretty darn close to the look I was going for but I still have to shave the gas door and drip rails to complete the package. I attached a couple of before and after pics, if they didnt do right let me know.

    I hear ya, I still have several things I wanna shave off the body (and add more taillilghts) but I could only spend so much money at one time. I been trying to think of a wicked paintjob to put on it so it's not just another generic single color truck running down the road.

    They TOTALLY messed that up!

    Just kidding... nice job. Looks nice and slick enough. I'm not much for the thin taillights either but it's certainly different - and different is almost always good!

    Now... do you think you'll want a paint job or graphics?? You'd almost need a horizontal paint job, whatever you do... keep that low feel to it?

    Keep up the good work - and keep us posted on what's being done!

    Actually, the more I look at it the more I'm thinking a dark graphite/green colour.

    Or, splash on whatever kind of paint and get yourself one of those hottie little girlfriends that can stand by it all the time. Always makes the truck look freakin' awesome. :D

    I keep coming back to Burnt Orange. I know it's becoming an overly used color but I saw one at a truck show last year with a carbon hood and it looked soo sweet! I know a guy that does amazing air brush work and I'm thinking about something like that??

    Well I have some hot idea's for you on the paint, then again you might think there for s*%# but that's okay.
    Instead of burnt orange which is kind of a normal color, why not try Atomic Orange? It is the new Corvette orange, and it has a lot of metal flake to it making it scorching on the eyes.
    2nd idea, since your going to do the Cadillac front clip why not go with a genuine Cadillac color?
    Black Onyx is what I have on the bottom of my truck, it is a Cadillac OEM color it looks just black but it's not. It has a dark charcoal/black look to it, but it also has lot's of metal flake colors. purple, pink, green, blue, red.
    Here is a nice two-tone idea for you too, it's actually what I am going to do to mine eventually.
    Top color-Cadillac diamond white
    Bottom color-Black Onyx
    That way you have the total Cadillac theme going, and it would look gorgeous with tan leather interior with some nice billet interior pieces. Sorry for the rambling but something about your truck just screams Cadillac to me, good luck with whatever you choose!:great:
