    Hey Bob the frame rails are bed lined. Don't you like it. Easy to clean. It won't show up as much stuff. Maybe I did wrong but thought it was the smart thing to do. :lol:

    Tomrr. It is B5 blue. Matrix call's it a bright blue. I added some micro flake royal blue in a color blender then shot three coats of clear. When the body is done it should sparkle give it a little bling. Also I can say that is my runner out of the crowd.

    Yes maybe went a little crazy with the bed liner. Figured it would be a good rust preventer. It is tougher than the paint. Think it will be easy to touch up if something happens to it skinned or scratched. It really is pretty tough. Russ.

    I really like the B7 blue. My friend that had one was B7. But I decided to go with the B5. I like blue also red. All the mopar color's but settled for the color I chose. Have a good one and your looks grate.

    Looks good. It's a lot of work reworking the engine bay. Did mine in my garage.
