I`d paint the gold on hood and go backwards ,windowframes under the gutter and above what now looks like some pinstripe..? Then I`d paint the roof bright white and the rest of the body cream / beige. Top it off with a red interior

Stationary. But I'm going to change it up alittle and the air bag the rear like we had on the cab over. That way the back of the deck will touch the ground and we won't need ramps, hopefully

I know of one done that way out here..the guy says his works great. I'm thinking on my rig as I'm watching everybody else in what they are doing on the bigger trucks. I'm thinking of a lift on my flat bed along with walking ramps.

Do you guys think I'm nuts? If so what would your options be to pair with the metal flake gold
Why the roof??

You would need a Drone or tall stilts to appreciate the dazzling beauty of all your hard work?
