I think the original color was cool, but the new one looks nice too. I like the gray :)

Other than some emblems, it's done.

The grey is from a late model gm truck. I can get you the paint code if you want.

What year would the paint code be?? That is a really nice gray. Could you post more pics of the car? That is super sharp. Thanks.

I saw an '07+ Silverado in a dark metallic gray, could've been the same.

I think that original green would've looked good with the dark gray :)
