    Not 100% sure how photoshop requests work. If I did anything wrong let me know.

    So the panda scheme has proven less than popular to put it mildly. Yes, it is ugly as shit. Im done working on my burb for at least for a month or two, waiting for it to warm up outside. Once that happens Im gonna order some vinyl and try my hand at wrapping on a large scale.

    Think someone could help me out with colors? Hopefully the white and black isnt too much contrast to photoshop. Dont have a specific color in mind yet kinda wondering what everyone thinks would look best but Im definitely going to color match the door handle surrounds, fender flares, and bumper cap, and Im going to wrap the bumpers too. Maybe something close to sport red metallic or deep blue metallic? Im also real unimaginative so maybe something less factory would look better.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'd paint mine silver if I wanted to change colors, easy to keep clean

    I mean clean like scratches don't show up as much. A black/dark green/blue truck would freak me out. Nothing but swirls.

    swirls on silver stick out bad in the right light, Theres a bunch on my truck that I havent been able to get out and they drive me fckn crazy. Def dont show as bad as on black tho, you're right there.

    Thats great gaterose, thanks! It may not be perfect but its better than what I have now. Shows me just how badly I need to get everything the same color.

    Oh yeah, thanks for the lift and wheels :haha:

    That was the plan originally but all the z71s I found were tahoes, and Ive already put alot into the small stupid things (injector orings, shift cable bushing, etc all that kind of small stupid stuff) on this one to make it a solid reliable dd. If I got another I wouldnt get back what I put in it and the next one will probably need all that as well so Im happy with what I have for now I just like to bitch is all. I got the carfax and until I bought it it had never left phoenix az, theres no rust anywhere on this thing and Ive looked pretty hard.

    Right now Ive got it right where I want it as a base, all I have to do is paint and wheels/lift but I already have the spindles and spacers coming so its getting close. If everything goes well Ill have wheels in march or april and Im gonna try diy wrapping it around that time as well.

    I think he meant just look at images of them bc the front end is color matched.

    But then u gotta look at that cladding

    I also refused to get one with the rear hatch, cargo doors was a must. And getting an 04 wasnt a mistake either. From what Ive read 2004 was the last year for disc rear before they switched back to drums, and the first year of hydroboost on the 1500.

    Yeah I was just referring to the color options instead of photoshopping
