    An old buddy of mine had a 1st gen that he camo'ed. It looked sweet. I could have bought the Blazer for $800.00. I kick myself to this day for not scooping it up. It was all original except tires and the camo job, had A/C, was rust free and had 1 dent in it other than door dings. It also came w/ 2 tops, a single wall and a double wall. Im an idiot, But I like mine better. [​IMG]

    I get all the exercise I need pushing my luck! [​IMG]

    Steve, I like it!!! I hopefully will be getting my next 72 soon. I was thinking of possibly going with camo. Its cheap and easy to fix. later.

    I showed my wife and she voted no also. Then said "I would rather you get it painted than spray paint it(rattel can)." So I said, "Are you saying I can get my rig painted now?" Then it came out of her mouth.... "Sure babe, How about a drk Green or something?" Hmmm, OK! But it will get scrached and dented! Then Fix it after!...OK

    Ya she is a good woman, kind of a city slicker but I'm slowly converting her!! heheh No blow dryers or curling irons when we go camping!!
    I have to get my rock sliders fininshed before it gets painted so it will still be a little while....

    Yeah, I think your truck looks killer the way it is now, but if you have a choice to paint it dark green, you can't go wrong. Dark green/olive drab on a rig is killer!!! And now you have your wife's blessing, so you better do it quick before she changes her mind!!!
