    The price of new trucks is astounding. Even if I hit the powerball I would be doing exactly what OP is doing.

    Black on black will look great. But I'd do a satin black not gloss. Gloss will show all your repairs. Just my opinion.

    You will never have another chance.
    If it were me I would do Chevy Orange.

    THE darker the color, the more it'll hide if that helps you at all. But if it comes down to red or orange, I'd go with the Chevy orange. Orange and Black are hard to beat!

    I've decided that the next truck I build will have a colored frame.. going with black on this one. Got some more done today only got to work for about 6 hours today. But the back half is done and has 2 coats of primer. Now next week I've gotta get the front blasted welded and coated. Any one have ideas on how to paint the inside of the boxed portion of the front frame? [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    With an hvlp spray gun. Siphon feed is better than gravity feed. You already have the compressor. You can get a bargain gun for $25 or a decent one for $100.
