Depends on what you're doing - is it going to be a stock looking, classic vehicle, or are you putting new axles, big tires, and a big engine in it?

If the first, go with the original colors, or try to not paint at all - you gotta love an old patina. If the second, do the opposite and paint it a modern bright color that you like.

This truck was a favorite from last year's SEMA show. All customized underneath, with a huge Viper engine, the whole works. But left almost untouched on the outside. That's a cool look.
