I finally finished this thread, it has taken nearly a month during downtime at work and I have collected several pages of ideas. So far the best thread on the forum!
I already bedlined my headlight inserts and have pulled the grill inserts to be painted. I will have to post pics when the whole front is done.

^^^^ What he said. I used Duplacolor bed liner. I'm very pleased with their product. I used the bumper paint on my dash and it is a nice finish as well

By write up im guessing u mean instructions which to that there was none just alot of "mock up" and a little more of "try this" haha but i will say a piece of pipe found in my scrap pile about 10 ft long and a pice of steel diamond plate same length an about 3 foot wide and alot of trial an error with a pipe bender an cut wheel its really not difficult haha. when i get time ill get actual spec boss and dont forget to reserve a few colorful words that i promise you will use frequently

I agree that it looks sick as can be. Sadly mines yellow, and I don't want it to look any more like a short bus than it does.

Yeah it might get that vibe haha but who knows it may end up looking good. It's hard to beat the contrast of black and yellow.

and @ RodentSniper, check around the forums and look for threads for monstaliner, and then look for some raptor liner jobs. Just my opinion, the raptor turns out looking better in the end. But it's a spray on and you need a compressor, and have to tape off a lot more stuff to eliminate overspray.

If money is no issue, I would go with line x. I got a quote from them for $675 to do the whole tub, but that's if you remove everything except driver seat and tie up all the harnesses. It's more if they have to do all the prep work.

I ended up just getting the raptor liner kit and did it myself. $150 shipped. You can find it cheaper if you shop around. Very happy with the end result but man did all that prep work take me forever. Had to do it piece by piece and sand when i had the time as it is my daily driver. Took the better part of a month prepping and waiting till I had a long enough weekend to spray it and let it sit so I didn't have to drive it anywhere.
My monstaliner is fairly smooth

That's talented work and it came out great. A very unique mod that looks awesome. It looks better than most aftermarket fenders I've seen.

Definitely need more info/more pics!

Awesome! There are a TON of really cool ideas on here. And if you haven't already, check out the "Don't Like Your Interior? Change It!" thread...it explains how to do awesome paint job mods like this:

You could just own the look. Find a blue bird or greyhound decal or something. Get a swing out stop sign for it, and a strobe light on top.




Or just get a black top, and have fun with plastidip on some other exterior pieces. I've seen a few yellow's running around with that bumblebee sort of look going on. I kind of like it.
