Paint Suggestions-

Hey all-

I'm going to start the body work repair on my 99 this winter. I'm going to cut out the rusted out fenders on the box, repair the dents & etc. Are there any suggestions to "the best paint" to use, or is it just painters opinion? I'm staying with the stock silver color, but might do a two tone with black. Just looking for ideas. At 265,000 it's time for a paint job. Thanks!!

im in the same boat. gonna fix up my body, and repaint her dark green as that is the color she already is.

I think it is personal preference, or should i say whatever company their supplier carries. On a different vehicle I had painted, The body shop used a certain brand, i wanted a different brand, they told me to buy it and they will spray it, so that's what we did.

Crank case bentalation delete. It takes the CCV from being introduced into your intake to being expelled to the outside air eliminating it from leaving the oil inside your intake Tracy and coating the turbo impeller wheel
