I would have kept whatever faded patina was left on it. I have always thought that the light olive green(don't know the "real" name) with limestone wheels looked so classic. Sandglow is a great color too.

Make sure you used etch primer . . . .

Other than that, NO BONDO.

Thanks Guys.

Ron,no Bondo What So Ever!

There Are Some Dents On The Rear Part Of The Front Left Fender But I Lfet It As Is. And Yes, I Used Etch Primer.

Kevin, It Had So Much Patina The Entire Hood And One Whole Door And The Wing Tops Were All The Way Down To The Aluminum.

The Truck Is In Such Good Condition I Had To Give It A New Paint Job.

So, The Original Color, Marine Blue It Is. Thanks For The Code, Les From Rovers North Gave Me The Same Code Number So I Know We Are Getting The Correct Color.

I Will Post A Picture Of It Once Completely Finished. I Have A Safety Devices Full Cage From A D90 I Had Going On It As Well And D-90 Rear Tire Carrier.

Thanks Again.

goodyear mtr's size 245-75-16's.

the tire carrier went on great. i did the same when i built my 69. i bought a used d90 carrier and fit it to the series just as you would to the d90. 4 holes will need to be drilled for the top hinge, the ones through the body. use big washers or a plate to reinforce it.' then the bottom hinge uses the existing body mounts and you need to drill another hole through the rear cross member. the other hardware is mounted to the swing gate as in the picture.

That marine blue is beautiful. Someday I want to repaint my truck to a blue, probably Arles.

Are you gonna repaint that tire carrier and mount it w/ stainless hardware?
