    Black/Silver insert...........I decided to go with the silver instead of the grey when I got her painted because it gives a way better contrast.

    I have an 88 right now with Black with a big gold stripe down the side. As of next weekend it should be Black with silver stripe. BTW- the gold is REALLY ugly. I will have before and after pictures as soon as I get it back.

    Mine is dark blue/gunmetal/dark blue, with blue int. Favorite color is solid black, this was the color of my 89. But black is hard to keep clean.

    What can I say? You guys got some sweet looking K-5's!
    Mine is white, with black primer front fenders and rockers. The rear quarters are a nice contrasting off-brown with custom ventilation supplied by mother nature (Rust). HaHa I'm still working on it, I already have the paint, its a deep metallic red with a bit of pearl in it. I'm planning on ditching the cap for Kayline soft top. I'll post some pics when its done.

    Mine is all black, with a touch of rust scattered around the body, dark red rims. If I were to get a new paintjob, I would get the blackest color I could find, or maybe are really really really dark purple.

    The coolest scheme ever on K-5's was the 89-91 Black with silver in the middle and the red stripe.
    Next up would be the 80's Black with Red in the middle.
    Number 3 is dark blue with silver in the middle.
    Anything that is not two-tone needs some contrast in the form of big wheel flares, running boards or something in another color. I know a lot of guys who have repainted and to save money they went solid with no mouldings and most of them were disapointed with the outcome. One guy I know after sinking thousands into dark, dark, navy paint, decided to repaint his top in a contrasting color right on top of his brand new paint!
