Well with round 2 reissuing this kit I figured I could build one of many from my stash lol. I'm building this truck as a 97 with a updated steering wheel and Pewter/gold stripes I'm editing myself. 

The paint on this build is the actual paint from my 1:1 99 Sonoma, it was only available from 97-00 and isn't very common. 

My one complaint about round 2 reissuing this kit is the "95" kit has the wrong wheels, this is the original "94" issue and these wheels are the correct ones. 

 

Anyways here's my build:

Nice looking paint work. Didn't you post pictures of your 1:1 Sonoma some time ago ?

Was this paint available on the full size trucks too? I recall seeing something similar on a Silverado or Cheyenne I think? Quite a nice looking brown anyway.

Yes it was but it was extremely rare. 

And thanks everyone else! I have finally made more progress. I have managed to get it wetsanded and buffed, the black trim painted and the decals installed(25 year old decals sucked to apply lol). I was going to edit these stripes and make them pewter/gold but from what I can find for reference pics the white is correct on this color for this year so I went with it. I still have a few areas of black to spray also.

Now onto the interior and engine.

Great looking model. Color preferences very from one region to another, but I remember see several Sonoma and S-10's painted this color. Always thought it improved the appearance of either one.
