It's cool that parts are still available, and at reasonable prices. May have to start a short list . . . But I kinda like the challenge of trying to make it work with only what I've got. You know the old "desert island" scenario.
Yeah, candy-apple red & flames would look cool, but I'm afraid I'll be working with a very course surface. My son was looking at an old beat-up pickup with a really rough dented body, and I told him the best way to hide that would be a flat finish paint, preferably camo--- I'm thinkin the same applies here.
I had a good laugh at your sig line - That's funny!
