Going back about a month ago I bought my youngest son a kraton 6s v5 .he will be home soon from college for the summer and he said he wanted to do some bashing .well it didn't really like the blue cover that came with it and he said he wanted a cover that matched my 1/1 truck .I own a 2021 Dodge Ram 1500 sport .so I found a cover by proline and I asked him what color and he said ,make it look just like your real truck.so here it is.

After doing a lot of research on white paint for body's,many didn't like how the white looked after they painted there covers .but I'm very happy how the white matches my 1/1 and the coverage is perfect..no see through and no blotches.one small can did three coats .the black only took two coats as the first being very thin .second coat I went heavy and came out perfect .I really was skeptical on using black as a backer but it was the right thing to do it made the white more realistic.and it didn't really darken the white at all if any not by much .if I had used a silver backing or no backing the white would have not matched the white that's on my 1/1 Ram .so overall I'm happy and my son loves it ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ I was hoping this would turn out to be a father and son project but nope I ended up doing it all by myself.he said ๐Ÿค” I just wanna play with it lol .kids will be kids

I must say that the window masking decals that came with the cover are awesome.no bleed through.but I recommend before you do your first coat ,use your fingernail and run it on all the edges real good so it doesn't lift .do it before every coat including the backing also .as you can see in the photos the windows came out perfect.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜

Dude that's awesome! Looks fantastic! Nailed it! ๐Ÿ’ฅ
Thank you.i know I mentioned a few days ago I'd post but here it is .๐Ÿ‘

Really nice job. It came out beautiful.

Now add big tires and the wing to your full sized truck so you can have a full scale twin. :)

That would look kinda funny ๐Ÿฅฐbut I love the thought ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜
 
Dude, if you wanted it to look like your 1:1 then Iโ€™d say mission accomplished! Looks groovy AF, @King blitz !!
Thank you so much . my son loves it so now we can bash together ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ i was going to put lights on it but my kid don't want lights on it so ๐Ÿคท his truck not mine .what eva makes him happy๐Ÿ˜

Holy siznit! That is incredible broski! I mean holy smokes you really nailed it. Serious talent.
Thanks brotha.i appreciate that ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

Wow man that came out great! I've always been scared to use white but that looks killer ๐Ÿป
Tamiya ps1white is really good paint.๐Ÿ‘ And for those who walk away from a black backing don't.no bleed through Or color changes.i was scared that the white would go gray but it didn't.made the white same as my real Ram.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

Super job. Most impressed with your attention to detail. You possess an obvious love for the hobby. I'm glad you took so many photos of the final edition, because it will NEVER look like that again... ;)
Thank you ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ .any hard bashing will be done on the original cover .this one will be the shelf queen cover .that's the plan ๐Ÿ‘
