    I've always been partial to hugger orange. Bright hugger orange.

    my truck is white, and i think it is sweet, especially after i get the black rims/bumpers/grille, etc.

    painted interiors are only good for better aerodynamics, Horsepower is gained from the oil-drum exhaust tips........

    j/k. I like to see some different things in the interiors of trucks. Lord knows its boring the way it is. I have been slowly adding blue things to my interior, but im trying to keep it under control.

    Metallic silver with all of the chrome pieces (door handles, gutters, badges, etc.) painted satin black. I always thought that would look good...send me some pics if you go that way so I can see what it looks like outside of my imagination.

    The learning curve is a toll road...ride with someone who has already paid!

    Paint it like the old Chevelle SS's. You can get a Steel cowel induction hood for these trucks. Put the white hood graphic stripes on it and the white rocker stripes on Black base. You could do a yellow base with black stripes. Both factory Chevelle schemes. That would be a neat retro Muscle car look.

    Yellow...how much? as the base with Black acents or black as the base or a two tone effect? give us more of an idea what you were thinking.

    DAMN!! A chick who drinks beer and has multiple K5s, does it get any better than that? [​IMG]
    Just powder coat it like I did mine, that should be unique. Sorry, don't have pics scanned yet.
