Lightbulb Let's see your 67-68 with two tone or faux patina paint.

I'm getting close to start painting my cab on my 67 SWB, SBW. I had a plan to have a rat rod originally, but ended up with a lot of new sheet metal and may want to two tone paint my ride. Can you sway me one way or the other with your two color or faux patina paint jobs?

Amazing ride. I love the Transits. How did you manage to hold on to the center caps with that setup?

What air ride setup are you using?

Re: Let's see your 67-68 with two tone or faux patina paint.

That truck belongs to mooseknuckles. It is pretty much the prime faux patina 67/68 out there. I believe he's running Mobsteel 20" wheels, not the 22" transits. I have transits on my truck and I used the cap clips that Mobsteel has for sale on their website. There's another guy on Instagram that makes cap clips that are better than the Mobsteel clips, but a bit more pricey.

Mine has a very subtle patina look. I plan to paint the roof white so not really 2 tone yet

GMC Super Custom badges for '67 only. There's a whole bunch of trucks with them in this '67 only GMC thread.

Would like to see the side view, I like that you didn't do just the cab in a different color.

Yes, truck was painted and sanded to break through the edges
