idk for some reason i really like your truck the way it is now. i would get some clear corner lights and some clear roof lights. i think clear would look better on yours than black

I like the blacked out look. But it all comes down to what you want.

I don't think I would go with the black, sometimes I think it looks kinda cheap.

Man I realy like youre truck right down to the yellow markers. I think you need to find some thing else besides paint to freshen up you rig.

My 2 pennies

I would leave it alone. Looks great the way it is! That is one of the best body styles Ford ever made, Along with 1964 - 1966 , of coarse in my humble opinion...
