Well since I can't get color match where I live unless I take it to a shop... I'm gonna go with black for now... (I don't like having to pay to get someone to do something I can do myself). Also just ordered rgb led strips to put inside. The plan is to continue on with the overall plan for the truck of an overlanding vehicle so it'll primarily act as a camper... So planning on a sleeping platform with storage underneath. Got some minor repairs to do too (new shocks for the rear door as well as new rubber around the rear door and a new latch)

RadioShack "Project boxes" are what I use for most of my electronics stuff. Toggle switches, junction boxes for terminal strips, and the prefect size to fit a fuse panel inside of:













They come in all different sizes, check them out

think I'm Gona build a small 6"x6" box out of 1"x4" pine. I will dove tail the ends so it's stays together nice and put some sort of cover on top to cover the box and make holes for toggle switches

Have you checked out expedition portal? Pretty informative forum. I do a ton of camping so that's my primary inspirations.

That's my favorite color for a truck. Don't see very many that shade of green. Looks great.
