    Colors of K5\'s Pics anyone?

    I am just about ready to paint my truck and I wanted to see some colors before I picked one. If you have a pic of a Bright Red, Yellow, Dark Blue, or Black rig please post. My rig is a 76 so a like body style would be great. I am hoping to see full body side shots. I have tried looking through some of the galleries on here but for some reason it says I am not a member when I want to look close up.

    Thanks, I was condidering one of the real bright yellows like you can get on the some newer GM's I like that color too though. Looks like the job is going to turn out real nice!

    I know it's not dark blue, but I was going "navy blue" before I found this color in the book...

    Note: That shot is of it's "mall cruiser" phase. I has since been converted to 1 ton, and the gay door steps are long gone... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    That truck is almost to pretty to smash up!! That is a gorgeous paint job. Now If anyone has red or clack we I will be able to make a decision. I would still like to see a "corvette" yellow as well. Thanks for your help guys!!

    There ya go,
    Red, Yellow, and Black!
    I think I would trade it for SCJimmy's blue, though. That's mighty purty.

    Nice paint, I like the air brushed leaves on there, kind of gives it that fall look.

    Upload your photo on CK5 members rides. Make sure it is less than 250k. Once it has posted on your gallery, open it right click the pic, go to properties, copy the URL, then go to make your post, click the image button and paste your URL from your pick their. This should work, I just learned how like 2 weeks ago, don't feel bad /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Not as pretty as the others, I like white though, hides a lot of nasty stuff /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Oops, just realized you didn't want to see white trucks, oh well it can't hurt to leave your options open /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Actually, I did not ask for white because I knew that it would look Good!! I had a barracuda with a lot of body work done to it, and the white hid everything. Trust me, I am still considering it!! Thanks for the post.

    That is a real good looking truck. you guys are making the color choice way harder. May be I will grind it down to pure metal and just Clear coat it. I guess the splotches of filler would not look that good tho eh?
