    With grey interior I would lay on a nice coat of PPG silver or dark grey, but thats me. Grey and camo seems like a funky combo to me. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Grey look fine with camo, I have a 86 k5 cucv from the military that I put grey interior in from a 87 blazer. The only thing I would do is use a glossy finish on the inside.

    yeah, gray / camo would be a little weird... though I do like rigs that are camo'd. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif other than black and camo, I think the best looking color on a k5 is a gunmetal gray. that'd be sexy and depending on the gray you have inside, might match up purdy well.
