    The K5 is white right now, but I'm not sure if white is the color I want it. I'm rather colorblind, so I'm not too sure what looks good together. Give me some suggestions on what will match the red interior pretty good.

    Silver, black, gray, or white. Fyi dirt and dents won't show up on white nearly as bad as black.

    I have the same interior in my '90 right now. The truck rolled out of the factory black, but I'll be changing that very soon (scratched and dents suck!) I'm thinking about yellow, not sure why, but it'd be different. I might end up with white or just leave it in primer too. What don't you like about the white paint on there now??? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Well it's the typical GM white that has started to chip off. That and the stupid factory rear tire carrier has rusted out my tailgate. This will be my DD for the next couple of years, so I want it to look good. That and there was a fire in the engine compartment and it melted the paint off the hood and left a big, nasty looking rust spot.

    I don't really like red because that would just be too much red for me. At least if I leave it white I can paint it with the doors on, but that would just look tacky.

    Also if I paint it white, I was going to get the round CK5 stickers and put them on the body somewhere before I clearcoat it. I think that would be pretty cool...until I scratched it there.
