    Orange since there is no Yellow /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif No really I was gonna go grey, but not that dark. Lighter colors are so much nicer on a vehicle that get "used". But I do like that orange.

    white or black. much easier to touch up. like was said above, lighter colors are much more forgiving on a rig that gets used.

    In order of preference...white, dark grey, orange. The white will help keep you cool in summer. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Mine is light grey and I really like the color, but if I was to change it I would go with the dark olive. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    <font color="purple"> Well, I am all about being different, going against the grain, sticking out in a crowd, well you get the point. My first Blazer was That color Purple, BARNEY purple. I loved it. Most people that saw it liked it. It has been 6 years SINCE I owned it and people still ask me about Barney
    Yes, there was the occansional slam on the color. But I could give a crap. So I vote on the purple, CHICKS DIG PURPLE. </font>

    yeah i love that color red too, its very forgiving if you dont like pulling out the ladder to give it a good wash. mine been painted that color for almost 4 years now, it seems to be gaining popularity.

    if i did another blazer it'd be olive drab, something about the olive drab / black everything else that looks very cool. heres some pics of mine now, i assume yours would end up looking almost identical to mine and sleddog's

    pic 6 months after it was painted

    well over 2 years after the paintjob

    Here's the one I like, but if I painted one from scratch and intended to wheel it hard, flat olive drab would be my choice.

    Orange, because I bleed Broncos Orange.
    Dark Grey, because it looks like a big ol bastard child of a stealth bomber and a tractor.
    White, because you can always touch it up.
    Red, because fire trucks are red.


    Personally, mine will end up Line-X black by spring time. Line-X is a good thing, in and out. Kinda Mad Max meets Bob Vila... /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Hey, what graphics program did you use to edit those colors?

    I vote Yellow, Green, or Orange. You just don't see too many of them.

    Photoshop. I select the original color via the wand, then press control delete, that deletes it to the fore ground color. then i press crtl-shift-f then set the opacity to like 75... then just go through the different options for color blending
