I completed my Truck Cap and only have the tailgate left and install a few things for my truck to be completed. The windows were a real pain to get back in.

I do need to install on a new carburetor because my carb is allowing fuel to drain out the bowl and I have to prime the carb every time. Then it runs OK. However, there is also a tick on the drivers side I did not have prior to starting the build. It will probably be an adjustment or a bad valve. Otherwise the engine runs very well.

Thanks.  I get my all my paint sent to me through Automotive Touchup (https://www.automotivetouchup.com/).  They have done a great job of colormatching.  I have purchased several rattle cans for small stuff, a quart of single stage for painting my hood and another quart to mix with the tintable liner.  I called to tell them what was needed for the liner and they did it right.  I highly recommend them.  Even the guy that repainted my hood and then blended down the fenders said the paint layed out good.

If interested in doing this, there are lots of Youtube videos out there to watch - I certainly did.  And make sure to follow the shaking directions exactly.  Have a timer on hand.  And gloves!!!!! and in an area you don't want to get over spray on.  This stuff sticks to everything.

Just wanted to follow up on my original question about Raptor.  I did coat the bed.  Here is a pic of how it turned out.  I like it a lot.

The color match looks perfect, how'd you manage that?

How's it holding up (fade/UV)?

(Had a better response, computer refused to post it)

Wow- thought we were brothers and sisters. 70+ reads and no responses.

I'm not an attention (w)hore. Life is tooooo short... If you want to know my recent life economic BS pls contact me.

Really get satisfaction from seeing projects progress. Isn't that our common goal? To cheer on, get new ideas, stimulate solutions?

Is the economy so bad that it has halted the forward movement of this site? Been pretty quiet....
