No I'll have to match it to the current fade, or just approximate :D

One of the reasons Shrek will no longer be green is the fact that I would have not been able to match the Trident 25 yrs old patina with fresh paint ( close but not that close ).

Yes, Guinness is best served ice cold in a pint glass, got it. But it has to come out of a bottle to get there.

Isn't that horrendous? There were two of them in that Barbie Pink in my neighborhood a few years ago when those POS' were popular.

BTW, I have always thought it would be cool to have a Beluga Black SW with a White Roof. I saw a picture of it in one of the UK LR Mags and loved it!

I was hoping you'd switch over to those black steel wheels- that's going to look bad azz!!!

Instead of alpine white for the top, check out Limestone (Series color)- it's a creamy off-white but is LR correct; would offset that black really well. I just powder coated a set of 130 steel wheels for my 90 & they look great.

Windshield rubber is off ( outside ) will leave on so it can be acid washed, then removed for sanding this weekend.

Galpin doors? mmmmm ..... Do you think he will ever come to Maryland?

Jay,

I've swapped the wheels the first week I've got it.
The pic on the avatar is ON LOAN from Doug, until the truck is done.
Currently has a limestone color , but not fan of it, I thought the Alpine White will contrast great with the PP Cage. But not shooting it down until the Black is on, ( I believe my friends will paint the roof afterwards so I get an idea of how limestone would look.

I am on the fence with a light tint ( windows ) on the Tub area, Alpines and rear doors, but no worries until it is back together

Room temp is closer to cellar temp (at least in the UK) than "ice cold". But we digress. Let's see more pictures of this supposedly not gay truck that likes to tan in the winter

Definately on the delivery.

Guiness is supposed to be served around 40-43 degrees and draft is supposed to be pushed with nitrogen not co2 like most drafts.

I was just kidding of course, although I'm starting to wonder if it's being taken that way. I'll take your word on it.I love Guinness and have been to Dublin to visit the factory (or one of them at least), but am in no way an expert.

Many many moons ago, we played rugby in Gret Britain and Ireland, and after the game ( called the 3rd time in Rugby ) the BREWSKIES came out, I have to tell you, the Guiness was the closes thing to be drinking lukewarm beverage, I am not much of a Beer Guy, so I can't comment if that is good or bad, but MAN O MAN , you need a strong stomach

No problem consuming the stuff by the gallon, really at any temperature, ice cold or "sitting out on the counter for 3 hours." It actually is not very high in alcohol content and in the right mood goes down like water. Yumm, wish I had one right now.
