Default Some plastidip
today i did some plastidipping. Side vents, center caps and various interior pieces. My camera isn't very consistent so you'll just have to trust me the orange is less explosive than it looks on the camera :-)

Welcome to FRF!

Although not my thing, the interior looks cool. Not a fan of the side vents though.

I have the interior accent pkg as part of my order that was just built 3/21. I really love the way it looks after seeing it in person on an auto-show display Raptor. For me, the current accents are enough and I'm not planning on adding any more orange to the interior (except to adjust the ambient lighting to the orange color). For the exterior, I was thinking that just a hint of orange might be cool, like the cowl or hood graphics with orange from Rappygraphics (attached pics). For those hood graphics, I would opt for matte black w/orange pin stripe on my Avalanche build (but that may even be too much for me).

I love what ford gave us stock with the Orange. I just take things a step further. I looked into rappy as well but just thought it was so overpriced. Price aside I'd have chosen EXACTLY the same as u

I feel your pain brother! I inadvertently double punched the wrong remote buttons dropping the gate part way into a post, leaving an annoying, less than 1mm scuff. I tried my hand at touch up over the course of a week and failed. called my body guy, he charged me 30 bucks to respray it. Good as new $50 later ( I tipped him for weekend work ).

Mallmanator: Not too shabby work. Iíll bet that goes nicely with the red interior light theme.

I hauled the dog up to the dog park today to socialize. Just for kicks, I engaged mall/stbks mode.

The first thing I did in FORScan is disable the remote tailgate release. After reading all the posts about this happening to others, I dumped that function. I really can't think of any time I'll need to push the button on the remote to drop the tailgate, as opposed to pushing the button on the truck.

Oh, and to stay on topic, I installed an Ultimate Tailgate Seal. The Bakflip MX4 cover works great, except where it gets damp around the edges of the tailgate.
