Re: what is my paint code???

Any body shop will mix it up for you.
You can even go to some parts stores.
None of the colors come pre-mixed, just like house paint, they mix it as it is needed (unless you want white).
Now all you have to do is choose a brand.

Re: what is my paint code???

Absolutely correct.
Sounds like you are going to paint it yourself.
If not, it's the labor that's going to be expensive, not the paint.
Even something like PPG is going to be fairly inexpensive.
Is the paint in good enough shape to just paint the new parts or are you going to paint the whole truck?
I think you can still do a good paint job for $500 bucks. Most of a good paint job is due to the skills of the painter not the quality of the paint.
A long time ago, I used to do jobs like yours just for the fun of it.
Once I started to charge for it, it was no longer fun so I stopped doing it.
I miss those days.

Re: what is my paint code???

If you do all the work yourself, you should be able to keep the budget pretty low.
Of course, having a talented buddy that is willing to work for food or beer doesn't hurt (don't give them the beer until after the work is done for the day).
I think I'm actually starting to envy your project.
Don't forget to post pics of all the work.
Good luck.

i guess im lucky there lol, i can do MOST of the work myself, and i have 2 buddies, one that works at Miller D.C. and sells the breakage cases at 8 bux an 18 pak, and another buddy that works at a bodyshop that drinks like a fish!!

got a new box yesterday, ordered up a set of new fenders at 90 bucks per side.. going to start working on the new box and getting it prepped for paint, actual painting wont be done till its warm...it was -20 with the windchill yesterday

Yeah, I'm sick of the cold. Been -35C (-31F) every night for the last week.
The next person that mentions global warming around me is going to get punched in the mouth and then pi$$ed on.
