Give me an opinion....silver or that old original blue/ turquoise color?

Iíll be continuing my documentation, but sure it will be slow with all the paint work.
I'm glad you got rid of the pink paint color. I didn't know if you were going to subsidize the project by selling Avon products or not...... LOL! Good job just for staying with a project of this undertaking. Funny how we romanticize how quick this is all going to happen and then a couple years later we still can't decide what color to paint it..... Ha! Good job!

Lol, yeah I grabbed any old rattle can we had left over and used them to keep surface rust at bay while setting in this humid climate here, pink was the first to go, haha. Iíve been at this build for total of about 10 1/2 months or so.....I actually bought the paint already....bout 2 months in....it is silver but I have had some changes in my mind. Learned a lesson, donít pick a color AND BUY IT until you are very close to paint time......Iíll prolly just paint it silver....and later I might do a turquoise top half on it with orange pin strip to break it.

Thanks for the kind words

You are certainly welcome, you're working hard at it. Silver would be a good color for the truck in my opinion. Besides, at the cost of paint and catalyst these days, I'd even be more motivated to use the silver, bolt it together and drive it for awhile. Enjoy the effort for a little while.......
