I think it's time to change the thread name on this one. I think you're far beyond the mild restoration. LOL (JK)

Dec 24, 25, 26 was 86, 83, 83 degrees (sorry to all my northern MOPAR brethren)... so I thought I better not waste those temps. Got the inside of the doors, hood, and tail gate cut in. I'm not completely sold on the color, but the wife likes it so she wins. This is the only old car I own she will ride in, so I gave her veto power. It's a mid-50's Chrysler color (colour for @Canadian country boy) called Lagoon Blue. I tried to get a shot of the hue in the last pic...

It’s been weirdly warm here too up north, low 50s! Not good enough to paint and shine though. Digging that color. Are you going to bedline the bed/back of the truck or paint it?

Actually, both. I laid down bed liner on the floor under/behind the rear seats and also on the inside of the tailgate. I'm going to paint it all blue though. It'll just have a tough undercoat to hold up the wear and tear it's gonna get.

That pic of the blue tailgate above is bed liner with sealer and painted top coat.

There's a couple of pics on page 2 of where the bed liner is sprayed.

Oops, sorry about that. Bedliner is the way to go! Especially the undercoat. I favor it over any rubberized coating.

Enjoyed another day hovering around 80 degrees, so you can bet I'm not gonna waste it.

Got the engine bay and interior cut in. The jury is still out on the color, for me at least...

I love the colour, especially if it's metallic and especially with a white roof.

And it would look real good if you cheated and put the '77/'78 Macho graphics on it. No one will ever call you out having the wrong year graphics on it except me! LOL.

It is semi-metallic. It has some shimmer in the direct sunlight. And yes, the roof is white. I still have to pick out the white paint, but I'm getting closer.

As for graphics, I have a couple of ideas. Also I have a guy in Florida that did graphics for my '70 Duster I'm I'm gonna run them by him and he'll tweak it.

It's a Chrysler color from the 50's. Lagoon Blue.
Well if you're going with the 50's color, you may as well go with the 50's look and.... chop the top! :cool:
