Changin' colors on a vehicle, most especially from red, would make me as nervous as a cat in a rockin' chair factory. Jes, remember, anything you don't paint is gonna stick out like a hooker in church. Peels, chips, scratches... Unless yer gonna take it all down to the metal n' purdy much do a frame off paint job, I'd do my best to stay close to what I had before.
Paved roads, another example of government waste!
