I just looked through this build thread and picked up a few tips for my projects. The truck looks great and makes me miss the dark olive 69 4x4 that I sold a few years back. The color never 'popped' on it like yours though. Very nice!
Thank you! I'm really happy with how the Dark Olive turned out. The guys at BFS Auto in Santa Clara did an outstanding job. I got say pictures don't even do it justice. It looks it's best during that mid morning / early afternoon sun.

I sometimes think things happen for a reason. Maybe the engine gods knew I had wished I did the overdrive the first time around and now this is an opportunity to do just that. Another way I'm looking pass this.. is that this K5 deserves a BAD A** motor and not a West Coast Engines.
