Well I didn't paint it to suit your needs, I painted it because I like the color. It's exotic and unique. Gay to you, Nice to me. We are all entitled to our opinions

Yup, that's why this world is so great. Your truck, do with it what you want.

I have to say, though, I would highly support the decision to paint it black. ;)

My Gen II explorer is a factory metallic lite blue with blue leather and I think it looks really sharp.

Yeah, I know of the color you speak. It does look good.. ESPECIALLY the interior. If i could find a complete blue leather interior I'd put it in my truck

You think I should paint the interior the same color as the truck? If i keep it blue, Im powder coating the rims to match the paint, while the spinner part of the wheel is left chrome (Mind you, this is NOT a spin kit, but the real spinners)

I figure when I get it re-painted I may as well paint the panels while they are all off.

I would leave it alone but the clear coat job just sucks... was never wet sanded.. you truly have to see it in person to understand. Doesn't reflect as much as the picture shows... I'm very picky and I will get it done the right way this time. Anyway, What do you guys think... the EXACT same color... or maybe a shade or two lighter (just enough to raise the masculinity of the color)

Plus, my bumpers are just painted, no flex agent or whatever or plastic additives... just painted... Won't last this winter I know that for a fact.

also painting and dying all those parts is a PITA and will likely never be happy with the results. I have interior peices in my 88 from 1984-2000 model year ford's, all the different shades of "mocha" are close but it took a long time to get here and several different shades of paint on the dash, armrests, trim, etc to try and match.
I had painted my entire stock interior and it was a BIG project, didn't hold up well, and didn't come out right. Ine day at the junk yard I found a 89 BII EB with a complete mocha interior, bought the whole thing and ditched the crappy painted panels...

I meant paint it a shade DARKER and add some metal flake.. not lighter..

Anyway... Well alright.. Same color it is then, (I could be happy with several colors, so for once you're opinions actually matter to me)

What about painting just a couple interior parts... Like the one part on the door that is always discolored no matter what you do, (and I know you know which piece I am speaking of) Right next to the switches for window/locks/etc.

I think that may not look bad.

You guys think blue on gray looks ok? I thought it may clash a bit.

Opinions wanted folks!

i like the color of your truck. u are a street explorer and probably want to be noticed and different from the rest.

i think painting the door would look good. but liek someone said dont get carried away. it could just become too much of one color.

Black is cool, but it's true painting a "show" car black is just like shootin urself in the foot.

Also, think of how many black street explorers there are on rims..

Thanks folks
