Default That didn't work out..........

This is not the first time I have color matched a red 97 ranger, but it's been a long time and this time I just don't like it.

Did it a few hours ago....... gonna spray it back grey tonight. LOL.......

Just puts too much focus on the front end.

I kinda agree with you, just a tad bit too much.

They make a spray paint remover in a spray bottle that works pretty good if you get to it right away.

id go for the original grey colour... too much red in the front.

Maybe, the other way, if it had red bumper and upper lip instead of chrome, would look nice...

but I prefeer the original colour schemme... chromed bumper, grill upper lip and grey grill...


btw... anybody knows the exact colour of the grill? I mean, the colour code

What needs to happen is the lower valence goes red and the grill goes back grey. Working on that........
