Colour Anxiety.. does this colour work?

Hi folks,

I've nearly finished a Bedford truck that's been in my shed for something like 7 years.. I already have a Blue one and a reddish one that I've previously rebuilt and I picked silver for the new one.. Now thats its sprayed and the chrome is back on I'm just not sure that it works...

Here's the three trucks.. what do you guys think?



I was sort of looking to achieve the 50/60's truck look with a bit of a modern touch.. I think I'm almost there.. just not sure, I'm too close to the project to form an objective viewpoint I think.. what would you think if you saw this silver truck on the road?

All opinions most gratefully received.

IT's hard to tell from just the front view but...I like the silver. It's one of the colors I thought about for my 48 but have since changed my mind. Not because i don't like it but more I settled on another color.

two tone would help with the 50's look, since it is silver it would be kinda of a retro tribute but a dark contrast on the fenders would be a minimal respray.

I think it looks great, and I think the collection looks very well lined up together. The colors are bright compared to the older colors but they do look good!
