Hi Guys,

My pig is currently at the paint shop, and i'm trying to decide about some of the paint lines. The 55 will be mostly stock and used as a DD.

Do you prefer the stock paint lines for doors and door jambs, or the slightly modified lines on the fj45 shown below?

I'm currently leaning toward the modified lines. Thanks for the input....

Hey guys, I think Heath is talking about keeping the exterior pig lines but wraping the color around to the inside. I have been thinking about the same thing. I really like the look of the lines wraping around. It seems to finish it off beter. If you are going for a stock restoration, stay stock. I you are just making her nice, I say wrap that paint around.

I like the wrap around approach. Wish I would have done that when I rattle canned mine.

yup i figured that out with the examples of pics he supplied, i dont like the wrap around. my vote was for piggy lines unless a solid colore is used.

Thanks for all the input - I'll be going with the stock paint lines.

I still like the wrap around look, but have decided to keep it "Original"......

:cheers:

solid is original too :) but I must say, I envy the two-tone....

I wouldn't wrap it around the doors unless you have lots more time on your hands
