    looks good! what did you use for the inside of the doors? It looks like it's reflecting.

  3. Thanx :)

    The old panels looked like crap, so I shot some bedliner on the doors and made new panels using clear .093" Lexan sheet cut to fit and painted them from the inside using Pactra R/C body paint followed by a coat of bedliner to keep it from scratching...

    truck looks good...where did you get those door panels??? i seen a newer mitsu on line once and it had a wing over the cab bolted into the holes of the cab rack...have you ever seen this?
    nice truck...really like those fender flares :)

  5. Thanx :)

    I made the new panels out of clear Lexan (same stuff used for R/C car bodies)

    After sizing everything up and drilling the holes (which was easy since it was clear), I just taped off a printed logo and shot it with Pactra Metallic Red follow by a full back coating of Pactra Outlaw Black :)

    The results are shown as a glossy clearcoat on the other side where the paint cannot be scratched :cool:

    Looks Great!!!!.. What kind of blade did you use to cut the Lexan??
  8. What are you selling the truck for. LHD should sell pretty quick!

  9. I used a pair of curved Lexan scissors :)

    You can get one at any decent Hobby shop for just a few bucks :cool:

    Sold it for $2k a couple of days after I posted these pix :eek:
  10. You sold it for only $2,000? Wow! I been selling a few through our shop and would have sold a Mini in that condition for around $7,000. I have a '92 Mits dump that I'm selling for around $7,500, a '93 Mits for $6,500 and sold a '93 Mits a month ago for $7,000. If you decide to sell another truck in that condition in the future let me know. I'm in Florida every winter and would pick it up from you.

  11. I actually bought it for $501.01 at a local auction, but sold it because it was only 2WD :(

    I had my eye on a clean 4WD w/dump, but I got outbid (silent bid auction)
