    OK guys I got a 1990 GMC 1500 Stepside.

    Pulled it in to the shop lastnight and I'm going to redo the truck and get it ready for snow.

    We got to put a ne3w tranny in it and a few other repairs but nothing major.
    Then were doing body work ad going to paint it.


    I dont know what to paint it!!!

    We got a White truck and 2 Red trucks right now. I nlike white and was thinking about shooting it white. The truck is black right now, what do you guy think??


    Right now, the three we came up with are White/Dark Blue, and Candy Apple Red.
    Or should I just go back to black?

    Thanks
    Clap

    I love white but sometimes on older trucks the rust really comes through quick. I'd go with red or the white though, black doesn't match anything. JMO

    I'd pry go with white over red. But I like black the best. But seeing as you already have 2 red truck and 1 white one I'd go with white to match em up. Got any pic of the truck?

  11. Re doing a 95 chevy 2500 right now> I'am getting the hurculiner bed liner and painting the bottom of the truck with it from the Chevy side crease down. I'am also pulling in the other trucks to paint just the bottom to cut down on any rust.
