Looking good so far.

Now, when you say "complete repaint to a nice green", do you mean the whole truck?

I sure do. I'm satisfied with the truck the way it is now, but while I was kicking around in Photoshop I colored it the same green as I did the badges in and it looks excellent. That's probably something to come much further down the line (say, past warranty, or when rust starts showing up), I rather like the silver-with-green-trim look I've got going on right now.
