Re: sea foam green paint jobs!

Sorry, Mines not to the paint point yet, but the original color was seafoam green and it will be again! I just love this color. Also, I think so many guys do red, black, or some other non-factory color (not that there is anything wrong with that), but to me there is just nothing that these trucks need other than the way they came. Good luck.......

Here's my '70 short step. Not sure it's officially called sea foam, but it reminds you of that older color...

Re: sea foam green paint jobs!

I had no idea that was Sea Foam. I always called it baby sh$% green. Thats what the Blazer was painted originally.
