    Heres the poll as per request... Tried to edit the last one, but it wouldn't let me edit it, only delete it... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    OK, here is the poll again with my wifes sketch... Looks a lot like the coloradok5 blazer after I got looking at it... Actually I'll add (I know it's 'cheesy') a moon visor! There will be SEC's bumpers, and rock protector at the bottum which would all be a navy blue... There stripe would also have chrome (small) at the top and bottum...

    Hey, if I wasn't concerned with the costs being to high this is the way I would go without question...

    My interior is blue, and I've already bought new carpet etc, but that would be just great with the yellow...

    I have so much I want to do to this thing I think I want to minimize my costs of the project...

    I'm a big fan of one color paint jobs. They look simple and clean...I'd say go with all Ice blue![​IMG]

    Just my opinion, but then again thats what you asked for..[​IMG]

    I'd go with the ice blue. But you should buy new tires first they look like they have been flat spotted a few times. Or maybe they just need to be balanced??????LOL

    lol... yea that was good about the balancing etc...

    I haven't decided if I want to do lift and tires/wheels first or paint job...

    I'm really considering doing the paint first. There is some good rust on the roof and some body rust on the sides, but the bottum still has the paint on the frame etc... I'd like to keep that body solid.

    I think I'll either go with the sketch of my wifes, or solid... I'm not going to worry about going yellow.

    I was just looking at your pics, and I absolutely LOVE black k5's.

    I have a 99 Black Grand Prix (GTP) that I absolutely love... didn't really like the color before that, but I've really fallen in love with it...

    Don't take this wrong but the way it is now it looks like a bronco. I'd go yellow on yellow. Screamin' f#$ing yellow!

    Im not trying to ruffle any feathers but my big brother had (he traded it in for a 2001 Yukon) a 1991 ford broken, I mean bronco, with that exact paint job 'cept the topper was white! I'm just hard assing you. Seriously, yellow would be cool. Theres one here in town with big colorful graphics over the yellow. It looks good.

    Just got back from the body shop... Guess what, they would only charge me an extra $300.00 to change the color inside also... Hey, for only that much more I think the yellow may be coming!! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] yes, in case you didn't notice I'm pretty happy...

    Hey,

    I'm getting a LOT of votes for solid Ice blue...

    [​IMG]
    You know I really have no idea how I'm going to end up painting this thing, and I'm really strongly considering all 3... I saw a truck on truckworld.com that was painted the same color as mine that was completely solid. I think it looked better then the yellow...

    I've been looking for something that had the same factory color as mine because I don't think it's very common... I've had more votes for that route too... [​IMG] in both polls
