    I like all except the brown. I am familiar with the red since that is what mine is. I like what you did with the color switches. I am not sure what color I plan to go with if I change from red, I have to wonder what dark green or yellow would look like, I just can't picture it. How hard is it to do that color switch you did?

    Not hard at all don

    send me a side shot and I can do it for ya.

    I still like the blue more then the color it is now. I kinda don't see the point in doing all the body work and so forth just to paint it back to the same color. I'd like to see a significant change I think.

    I'm voting for the deeper aqua blue in the changing color picture you have up.

    Sam.
    Problem is I don't have a good side view of the car. Right now the car is on jack stands and in a few peices so can't get one anytime soon. It's pretty similar to yours though, how much trouble would it be to put a dark green and yellow on yours?

    Thanks,

    kinda hard to get a true yellow with my method, if it's bright bright yellow you lose ALL the body detail and it kinda defeats the purpose all together:p

    hmm still like the deep aqua best..but truthfully the gangsta black with chrome is kind of eyepopping and even the vomit green has merit...oops...wow..Im color blind...that dark green is sooooo dark it looks black at first glance..

    I like the aqua (the color you have it now), but I am kind of biased.

    I like the aqua, but I would go with a sunshine yellow with white side stripes filling in the trim indentation from the front to the tail lights.

    Thanks Sam.
    It looks like I might have to stick with a red or maroon. Good luck with your color pick. Be sure to show pictures when your done.

    Exactly!

    To much of a nostalgia trip and some of you guys may have to pop a viagra to truly show your excitement.

    Damn it was worth a try, but I pretty much threw you a fastball, and you proceeded to knock it CLEAR out of the park with that comeback.

    Props to you good sir.
