    gpomp - stock is not two tone. I wanted to do the bedliner tinted factory colour to give a sutble contrast (simulated fender flares), similar to the Eddie Bauer edition Fords

    Here's mine:



    Needed a new windshield for my truck. Couldn't do it unless I fixed the rust as it was that bad....shop grinded it down and there ended up to be handful of holes, so had to cut and weld new metal in place. I opted to have the roof finished with spray liner and color matched to my truck.

    Arash reminds me of Mar but I can't tell which one is more stupid.

    Yeah well I wonder how they get the soft flowing caramel inside the Caramilk bar but you don't see me making a god damn thread about it. Slap your wife Baygirl, straighten him out.

    Really smart on a truck. Nice choice.

    The solution is to start making beer. Peak oil by 2030. Peak beer by never. Pivot!

    Thanks ExtraSlow. Looking to "de-chrome" either with flat black or spray body coloured paint or bedliner again

    I went and had a local body shop give me an estimate on some rust repair I would like done on the front fenders and rear quarters, he stated the front fenders were fine and could be blasted and painted but the rear quarter panels had to be replaced as they are two layers of metal together and the rust has probably gotten between them and replacement is the only proper way to do get rid of the rust. He stated that he could fake fix it but it would only last a year so, I took a look at the quarters myself and I could not see how its two pieces of metal together, it looks like 1 solid piece and there was small amounts of rust no further than a couple inches in.

    I want to get this resolved before winter hits if possible, am I looking at actually replacing the quarter panels or is there another permanent way to get rid of it that doesn't involve selling the vehicle?

    This is on a Mercedes Benz R550

    Replied to your PM, I forgot to mention when I took my car to R&J auto body they called around for me to see if they can get quarter panels for my car but since it’s older it is not available, so maybe give them a shot and see if they can get quarter panels for your car. If not Power Chief auto body is what R&J recommended if you want them to cut and weld a new piece of metal but the shop that did @JDMMAN ’s truck give a 5 year warranty, I’d call them too.
