My buddies and I finally got around to painting the hood of my truck last night.

The Bat Truck....yeah I knew that color scheme reminded me of something I'd seen before. Nice touch, now you REALLY need to spend some time slammin' that bad boy! WWWs and red wheels are only meant to have the very lowest parts exposed.

A big thumbs up to you!

Normally, I'm one who likes a smooth expanse of sleek, one-color metal. Man, whoever laid that out has a FANTASTIC eye.

I like it!

P.S. White scallops go on anything. I say scallop it as is.

Koop,

I think you're right. I suppose that with my truck being such a mish-mash of colors it couldn't hurt to lay some on there. Worst case scenario is that I'd have to sand them off again.

There is a bit of freedom that comes with having ugly paint.

I just recently got photoshop and havent had much of a chance to play with it. Whats the best way to do something like the drop? I found come cool old gasser pics and I was going to try and set my truck pic on the gasser pics.

I'm probably the odd man out here on the whole dropped issue. I don't like it. It already has a slight rake to it and I think it looks great as is. IMHO

Koop. Looks great, I really like the color scheme.

Classic Trucks Magazine has been running a monthly article on lowering a 60. They are using a straight axle. It looks good, it is supposed to conclude this month. Check it out, it is worth reading.

but, IMHO, I like the current stance, no lowering needed!

I wouldn't go that far down, maybe just enough to have the top of the wheels even with the lower part of the wheel well opening. Maybe an inch or two?

I just select all then paste it as a new layer, erase the wheels from the new layer then move it down to the desired level
