Undecided......

Maybe a dark gun-metal gray? I really can't come up with a color that seems like it yet. I need something that is not too crazy to match/repair

Just recently a guy I know painted his 68 Mustang coupe in the old Gulf blue/orange combo and I fell in love with it. I think thats one of the best retro paint combos there is and for some reason I could see an early Bronco making that work as well.

It'll clash with the blue.

Nice rig thus far. I should've took a look at it when it was at Greg's.
