    I'm an original east coast guy so I grew up loving sleepers, your truck is so neat but a little bright work wouldn't hurt any.

    Along with the chrome changes suggested, IMO a headlight swap would make an already nice truck even better.

    I've been a painter since I was 16 years old and now I'm 62, I've had plenty of vehicles with flames and custom paints. The thing I found was that I got tired of the fancy stuff very quickly but the simplest paint work stayed around for years. Change wheel and tires, exhaust system or interior trim to change it up.
    Even upgrade the red paint with a new cote works.
    Thats gotta be a fun ride!

    Squirrel beat me to it......I'd add chrome bumpers and door handles as well as more stock style chrome mirrors. It reminds me of a pickup the neighbor had in the early 50's, fond memories:)
