    I bought a set of those and they are a bitch to get installed. In the end I think I used 4 of the triangle looking ones.

    Its just because the cert is/was fucked up on whomever is hosting this site. It looks like it was just renewed on 7/3 so maybe some lingering issue.

    Damn just realized that one @Crashtd420 listed is clear, that might work.

    @mainer311 seems like a consensus on the color of my truck. I guess I can just get a spray can matched to that and see what it looks like.

    Yeah I got a quote to line it as well but just not sure I want a black bed at this point. Part of me thinks it takes away from the vintage factor of the truck. I agree I don't think it will match but its better than rust I guess. And I think Ray uses or used a spray can to touch up his truck IIRC. And in regards to the color I never did figure it out but a local paint place said they could match it as best as they could using a camera. And its not so much the bottom of the bed as it is the wheel well and the top of the tailgate. Its funny because I bought a bunch of wood and the stuff that was laying on top of the tail gate and touching the front of the bed came out with blue pain on them. Could I just clear the bare stuff and leave it as-is? I mean that maybe easier than trying to paint match it.

    Anyone know what I can do about the paint in my bed? It seems that with all the wood I’ve by buying it’s taking the paint off some areas down to bare metal. I am not even sure the paint code but can can I get it matched and touch it up or just clear it? If matched should I go to an auto body and paint shop to have them match it?
  10. they might not want to but I am sure he does. He and that other dude are all about nissans.
  11. Either way would be cool to be local to someone like that. Then I could ask him all the questions I ask the old farts here. 😋
  12. You see that dude Josh from JDM legends moved to CT and is working for some shop up there now. I saw on YT he is driving a Yugo with an L18, twin solexs and dogleg 5 speed. '
