    Well, camo, obviously. Me, I say red-green-blue camo, or some other noxious combo. Maybe the day-glo high-visibility paints?

    use black primer, then clear coat it with a coat that has a flattening agent added. Alot of hot rods do that now to be "old school"....gives it a nice suede look

    I don't have a choice in the voting. I've always decided on a color then went to Home Depot or local hardware store and painted it with rattle cans. Cheap and easy and you don't worry about scratches or what ever. When you get back from an outting you just pull out the can and touch up the effected areas.

    New paint job again. :D
