I'm thinking gloss silver and flat black Jim. I've got a good feeling.

How about semi gloss white with some red and black accents?

How about using the silver paint and do some bomber art and all the panel lines and rivets etc. like an old bomber

The bomber art is something I'm kicking around but the panel line and rivet thing has been done many, many times, and it's not my style to replicate what has already been done. I'm also considering some sort of tribal design.

One suggestion I have, and I plan on doing it to mine when I build it, is smooth the top of the passenger side over flow box and add just the top of a battery to it to make it look somewhat like a battery. Monogram was famous for doing stuff like that. The '77 Chevy 4X4 has two batterys!

Holy shnikes! I hadn't noticed that. Thanks very much Roger.

EDIT- just Google imaged it. There are two reservoirs. One for coolant over flow the other for wiper fluid I'm guessing. However they are much smaller than the molded part. I think I'm going to do what you suggest.

The driver's side would be the wiper/washer reservior, the passenger side would be the radiator overflow, at least that is how Chevy built mine... They are both made of the same material.

Thanks guys, I'll be hitting it hard this weekend. There really isn't any time consuming work left so getting to paint is pretty likely. More soon.
