Right now this EXT is about 75% done. I've got most of the paint on but there are a few details I want to add (hence the reason why it doesn't have a page at my site).

I'm still really hesitant to paint the whole wheel red. Right now its a red spinner and a chrome back and I was thinking I could paint the back either red or arctic white. Also if anyone has suggestions for interior details I'd love to hear em.

Note that I removed the running boards. Anyone think i need to compensate for those by adding something?

dang that thing is awesome I think you should paint the inside of the wheel white. Man I wish I could do paint jobs like that.

I dont like the color choice at all...

That being said, you did do a great job on it:biggrin:

I think it needs its running boards back too. And leave the chrome on the wheels chrome.

:thumbsup:

Looks hot.
Like Skyline said, there needs to be a few more things done to it. You said that it wasn't done yet though. Keep us posted on how it goes.

Is it me or did you just take the plastic piece off of a red EXT and put it on the white one. I was going to do that to put silver on a black EXT but the problem comes when you go for the bumper since it is connected to the rest of the body.

The pieces were removed and repainted, I didn't just pry some off another EXT.

I think I will paint the front bumper area as suggested. The wheels (not the spinners) will get painted white, so the wheels will also be two-tone.

I'm was also considering painting the door handles red. I'll get some interior pics soon.

I take my comment back. Can't wait to see the finished product . . .one suggestion paint the lower piece on the tailgate. The rear molding will flow better with that lower piece on the tailgate painted. IMHO.

Not too sure about the paint combo. But I'm gonna wait for the final job to make a decision.
