Truck used to be ugly Burgundy and Silver, now its Sonic Blue with a box off a 2011. Also have a new set of compounds to get in the works. The last setup blew the atmosphere up. Here are a few pics!

LOL, you went to a 11 bed too. I did a compleat tear down this past Aug. went from white to a custom orange. Most people can,t believe it, the only way you,d know it was white is if you look under the hood or lift the carpet, LOL.

Bahahahahahahah !!! how much does it cost to do a repaint ? A small fortune, now lets say your gonna do a color change, and do it right. A LOT !! When we did mine I kept track of the materials I used, when it was all done we figured around $2200.00. Then on top of that, add another 1600 for the new bed I got, and 225 for a used 05 left rear door. We use Diamont products for the most part, the primers and bass caots were all Diamont, the clear was a cheaper brand cost wise, but just as good a product we think. Have to keep in mind with my truck it was a tri stage. Starts out with a solid orange, over that we lay down a green metalic pearl and then clear over that. Its a custom, one of a kind color. You will never see another truck on this planet the same as mine, and thats how I wanted it !!

Looks good. That truck used to look BEAT in person and now I can't wait to see it at the buck this year
Not sure if I'll be there this year, until the east coast pull. i hate the 2.8 rule the buck has at powerfest. so we'll see how things go with the compounds.

We,ve built a couple sonic blue F-150,s here at the shop, that was one color I thought of. The other was Tuxedo Black, its just a metalic black. We just finished one over the weekend, doing the alignment on it today as a mater of fact. Ford has really steped up when it come s to trucks. this thing is the ####z.
