    Sorry about the delay . I don't pop on here very often . If your still interested . It's Ocean Blue 2001 Volvo and Silver Frost Pearl for the late 1990s Ford with PPG multi colored flake mixed in the clear coat . I used Dupont but have sprayed everything in the PPG, NAPA , DUPONT paint line with good results

    Hello BB, to be honest I have never painted that grille. Matter of fact I havent removed it since I bought the truck in 02'. It probably is very close to the original white(Ivory). Thanks and let me know if I can help any other way. Donald

    I hear ya'. If I do another truck I'll probably go the new chassis route as well. It's a big chunk of change up front, but the time savings would be huge. Not to mention all of the nickle and dime parts that add up. And I do have quite a few spare parts. Traded a guy about 3 grand in guitar gear for all of it. He and his son had been collecting parts for 10-15 years and the son lost interest, so the dad just got rid of it:-) Happy wrenching!

    The roll pan is from MarK and I fabricated the teardrop taillight buckets into it. The steering wheel is actually a Grant Mahogany wheel but it's close enough to the walnut is why I chose it. I am using the original seat but I had it reupholstered with a 2 tone rolled and pleated vinyl. I'll post a pic of the seat.

    That looks like a very sturdy frame, looks like it could be 8" tall. How does that rear suspension work, the shocks look rather flat? Nice build you have going there by the way, looks very impressive.
