    Alright, the pic below is the way my truck sits as of today at noon. I wanted to paint it fluorescent green but that just didn't pan out for a number of reasons. I ended up going with orange (obviously) and I didn't like it at first, but it's kinda growing on me. I'll have the rest of the truck done in a month or so.

    My challenge to is: guess what this color paint originally came on. It was an OE paint, so this isn't hard or exotic. The winner gets a big thumbs up. :D If it takes too long I'll throw out hints once in a while.

    Best of luck. :D

    BTW - The light spot on the fender is from the camera flash, don't let it affect your judgement.

    It looks like some heavy equipment colors I have seen. Not sure which one. Looks good so far.

    EDIT...
    Kubota is what I was thinking at the time.

    I have to go to work in a little bit, so I'll give you a hint before I leave.

    Hint: A.C.

    That's it, nothing else. Maybe someone will have figured it out by the time I get home

    It looks like my truck's color!

    My truck used to be a State Owned Vehicle earlier in life. Game Dept, I think.

    a chevy orange blazer looks cool. my auto mech teacher in high school had an orange 76 (may have been an earlier model, can't remember if it was fully convertable or not) it looked sweet, but what he had under the hood was even sweeter, sb 400 that was hopped up. man that thing was sweet! the interior was in imaculate condition too.
