    I love how the project UAV looks and I also like the gunmetal grey rigs.
    I am going to paint my truck one of the two.

    Use your imagination for this one:

    It's all muddy, but its dark blue. $300 for the whole thing with warranty. Cheap paint lobs rule! But some of the dark gunmetal grey ones are REAL CLEAN. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    White, blue, grey, black, flat black, crimson red, green.

    I'm not big on the bright red, orange, yellow, neon stuff. But I do enjoy seeing them everynow and then. Although the orange one above has some sweet rims. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I don't have this truck anymore, but it's a chevy lt blue, and the cap and flares are a f$rd dark blue.

    This is my latest project. which is dark blue and silver. I don't know what color this truck is gonna be yet! I can't decide either. Either another f$rd color. like the hot purble/blue thats on the newer rangers. Or i was also considering a burgundy that mitsubishi uses.

    I'de post more, but DON'T want to known as a total pic whore!!
