Should I Shout or Whisper?

I want my truck to stand out but I was thinking "subtle stand-out" with a paint-job like my S-10 model with the Toyota wineberry pearl over Honda black pearl. But I've been thinking lately, what if I copied the paint-job on my '87 "Thunders-Truck" S-10? It wouldn't have the same effect as it had on that truck with the "Wild-Side" Choo-Choo Customs bed but it would stand out. I don't really know what I want to do with it. Plain black? Wineberry pearl over black pearl? Mighty Mouse- Red over Yellow? I get the feeling that no matter what I plan, it will change as I attempt it. I planned on rebuilding the transmission at first but got delayed and the rebuild kit got used in the van. Then I brought the truck home and found the engine was locked up so I started with the V-8 swap. Midway through that I found out the V-6 wasn't locked and thought about putting that back in. Then I said "Heck with it! I'm V-8ing it!" I had money saved up to get all the body parts and materials to fix up the body and also enough to buy the parts to hot rod it too. But after ordering the body parts we helped Jessica get her truck and that took up the money for the hot-rod parts and the paint-job material money. Now I'm stuck saving up again. So I think a lot. A LOT! Help me out with some advice!

But that still doesn't answer my question! Go loud or whisper?
