    The color is great! Stick with it. I especially liked the brick effect (grin).

        That's what I read. I'm surprised it only took three minutes to load on my machine.

            The only clear coat is in the middle; there isn't any on the edges at all, since there's a lot of little dings that need to get addressed before we really go fot it. I must admit, the Studebaker pickup at Barrett Jackson was the inspiration, though I think this is probably several shades lighter than that (Forest Green??--maybe).
            The response from those who've seen it in the flesh has been unanimous, though, so maybe I won't have to hunt down the darker color.

            But I'll also pose a new question--What color combo for the frame (Art Morrison, not Stude), suspension, and rear end?

            My thought is a dark grey frame, with a contrasting color for the suspension pieces. But body color? satin black? nickel or chrome?

            What do you all think?
