I have no idea. He painted it, and I paid him. We are both pretty happy.
I guess I should have asked.

2007 chevy white (I know I know) and Ford Coral orange. About to change Coral to Red in a few weeks. I kept the coral for 6 months and not really into it anymore. Still not bad for a $200 farm truck

Just picked this one up this weekend. It is a 1976 trailer special f150. I am going to use the cab for my 1976 f250 4x4 project. I already have the frame and drive train. Just trying to figure out what I want to do about the highboy steering.

If the door doesn't rattle, someone has gone to the trouble of adjusting it. The striker bolt has the outer sleeve missing, as seen in this photo:

There should be an outer sleeve on that striker bolt, and without that, it's almost impossible to completely eliminate the door rattling over bumps.
Not an opinion, just cold hard fact.
A truck like that is well worth investing the ~$10/side for new striker bolts to regain the original ease with which the doors latch.

Thank you for the education, I am obviously an idiot.
Maybe I can build a nicer truck someday that suits your criteria.
Sorry to have disapointed everyone with my rediculous rattle trap.

Did not intend to offend you in any manner. I simply pointed out a quick, cheap, and easy to replace item that would compliment an otherwise fantastic looking looking vehicle.
If that offended you, then that's your problem. Most people would not take offense to something like this, particularly given I already complimented the rest of the vehicle.
Those striker bolts have a plastic sleeve on them, and plastic isn't known to be durable when it reaches the age of these trucks. Replacements are readily available, for a reason............

Rogue is right that you are missing the sleeve. But if it don't bother you then its fine.

On a different note, Love the steering wheel you have and the red interior. Would have never guessed it would be red but it really looks good.

Look, I don't disagree that the plastic bushing over the striker is gone.
BIG DEAL! I'll change it someday, but since I adjusted it during assembly that way it does not rattle and is not a priority.
It just irritates me that I took my truck from this.....

TO THIS....

And someone searches the picture until they can find something negative.
Besides, the topic was ''post your two tones'' not ''get your truck nit picked apart''
Compliments are nice, but shouldn't be followed with critisizm unless asked for.
It's just rude to point out something like that on someones truck that they poured a lot of work into. If you can't realize that, then it's your problem.


O.P.- Sorry for helping Rogue hijack your thread, back to color combos now!
