    I wanted to see how Orange and Black would look on my '75 Blazer, so I grabbed some Wal Mart spray paint, took an old blanket and wiped off the dried mud, and started spraying. Call me crazy, but I think I'm going to paint the rest of it like this, just to see how long it lasts before I actually break out the sander and sprayer.

    Mine is orange with a black hardtop. It get's lots of attention, besides the fact that it's got an 8" lift on it. All i've gotten is good comments, and hey, it's kinda different for the time being.
