    In case you are interested in the original paint colors for the '57 Chevy - http://paintref.com/cgi-bin/colorcod...page=5&rows=50

    Many of them are quite subtle.

    I didn't realize there were so many different colors for trucks in 1957, especially, so many brighter colors.

    Yes, I would have guessed all pastels, like the cars, but that cardinal red and marine blue are pretty bright.

    The builder called me today. My truck is in his shop. All parts are on hand and my truck is now his top priority. It will be done within the next three months.

    A while back he called me and asked if he could bump someone in front of me because the guy's wife had terminal cancer and wanted to go for a cruise in their 54 Ford truck before she passed away. What was I supposed to say to that....no?

    I still haven’t decided on a color for the finished product. Do I go bold or subdued? I don’t know what to do.

    Why not an original 1957 Chevy truck color scheme ??
    It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

    The truck isn't original. There will be a fair amount of customization when it's finished. I think it should be something other than an original color.
