    Things are moving along so I thought she deserves her own thread.

    A couple of progress pics for the record.

    Default M135 Paint Scheme

    Had a rain delay priming the M135 this weekend so it allowed more time to think about paint schemes........which is bad.
    There's as many options as there are people so I thought I'd throw it out there.

    What would everyone do if they could choose the paint scheme for their 1956 M135CDN?

    We thought we'd go original drab however after seeing a local M135 with a camo job, I'm not sure.

    I was never a fan of faded Canadian Camo. OD green works just fine. Ask Super Dave!

    Make my vote for Semi-Gloss OD.... Much easier to maintain then any of the ultra flats and less likely to attract rust to your hood and fenders, too!
