And don't forget, a lot of the WWII desert tan colors seemed to have a habit of fading into pink also (IE, the "Strawberry B!tch B24 @ the WPAFB Museum).

I say go for it, paint it lily pink. When done you can paint some purple lilacs on it so that it blends in with any annual or perennial garden. Flower Garden Camo or the Walt Disney Upchuck theme!
I know you did not go there. Do I seem like a flower girl to you. There nothing with expressing your indivdual personality in your MV. But To keep the peace I will keep the duece plain.

DO NOT, do that on our account. You paint your trucks any color you please. Until someone else pays for them, they have no say what so ever how you paint them. Need to get Gimpy to show you the urban camo job on his old shop van.

There may be precedent. As I recall: In getting ready for Desert Storm, one of the army bases got a bad batch of paint... The first batch of M1A1s they repainted with what was supposed to be desert tan... Came out pink.

They had to be repainted but for a while the US had pink armor. So Spicy can have her pink truck.

Don't. I like the pink avatar. It might even stop some neighbors from complaining about that horrible big green thing on your driveway. You might even start a trend!

There is a famous movie precedent in Operation Petticoat. It was so successful that it was followed up by a TV serial two decades later.

From the picture almost too good condition to need a complete standard paint job at all. Custom wishes, however, is always a good reason to repaint. ;)
