    Flat black is always spiffy-looking.

    This is a really personal choice. I am a huge fan of the RATROD look. Satin Black with Red or White pinstriping. And if you do it and I don't like it I didn't waste the paint on my truck, And if I do like it, hey, your in Canada so noone will say, "Hey I just saw a truck with a paint job just like that" So it's really just win/win for me.

    Here's a pic of black wheels under a flat black K5, and it looks great. It's for sale (not by me), but it might give you some ideas for your own.

    I vote against the flat black paint jobs done in the backyard. Here is a picture of my truck:

    I vote not for white, but for a two tone of bright corvette red and black with all black wheels, mirrors, grille, and bumpers. With everything very shiny

    Oh, and if I repaint, I will probably stay with white, but add black graphics.

    shiny is all well and good for a truck that wont get "used" like most of us do here. once you start beatin it in the rocks, and in the woods, you get trail stripes, and they look terrible on shiny paint. at least with a flat paint, or rattle can, they're easy touchup.

    is your frame bent? it sure looks like it,

    VERY, VERY nice! Did you mix up the rustoleum from a gallon can and use a spray gun? or did you use spray cans? If you mixed it, what ratio of mineral spirits did you use?
    thanks,
    James
