    Ok how about someone throwing a set of white rubber running boards.
    I’m off to the races.

    In time the white walls will age and match the firewall better.
    I would paint the block the same colour as the firewall.

    Since you did ask...
    The shade is too dark. Maybe Vanilla Shake, but the firewall stands out as... odd. & to me, not in a good way. Looks dirty/uncared-for white. Esp w/the brighter ww tires. Although I wouldn't like the un-kempt look of old dirty whitewalls, either. <shrug>. & the striping helps, but would be better if it matched.

  12. Leave it alone. Wimbledon white or french cream are both winners. No stripes.

    I'm late to the party but I really like it on that truck as it really makes the engine stand out. You don't notice the light colored firewall as much as you see the detail on the engine where the all red that HRP showed in his before shot the engine faded into the background.

    Another vote for Wimbledon white. A couple of gauges set in the firewall would be a nice touch also.

    French Cream done. Very similar to Wimpledon white.
    Matches my seat.
