Hey all, i bought new bed, doors, hood, fenders for my 79 F150. They are all a dark blue color, my cab is Red tho. I was thinking of doing the paint myself using Maaco, or something like that. How do i find what exact color i have so i can match paint?

take one of the parts that has the color you want on it and they put a color reader on it like they do with house paints. and yup a fender works... they just need a spot the size of a 3x5 card that is somewhat flat

I'm assuming you own a shop?? haha

I have the truck stripped down to just the cab, did the body rust work, and now i just need to figure out who can do the paint of the cab for a reasonable price. It's a old truck im not looking for show room quality, but i also heard from a few people Maaco isn't good either.

it does depend... they are independently owned.... but the materials are a big part of the quality... I don't own a shop but I do work on the side.. I have done many show cars.... you can do a little hunting in your area.... ask around and look at the cars that shops have done.... and if you can wait, look at when they look slow and work out a deal... sometimes you can drop it off and tell them your not in a real rush... pm your # and I can talk more
