I think what you wish to do is a bit too esoteric for a specific program. Although, there was an article in Street Rodder (?) a year or so ago that allowed you to use templates to do a limited variety of paint scemes.

I suggest Photoshop which I have, but even after taking a class at a local community college, I never mastered the program. The doorknob teaching the class had us buy two expensive books and then proceeded to read them to the class. That guy couldn't sell Vasoline at a Gay Pride Picnic.

It's been a few years since I even used the program to show me and Pam Anderson dating (just kidding) so there might well be better programs out there.

You´d probably be better off using Adobe Illustrator.
With it you can do stuff like this and this.

My truck is on page 12 of Malc's photos.

No clue how he does this stuff...but he is the guy to ask what to use.

Thanks again!
