Just got a '54 Chevy. need to paint fender. opinions?
I just bought a 54 chevy pick up 2 nights ago. The drivers fender needs painting. I'm thinking about doing all of the fenders and my windshield visor in a creamish ivory color. Or should I paint it pinkish purple to match the rest of the truck? Opinions?

any suggestions? I'm stuck on color choice for fenders and visor... or should just paint the fender to match the rest of the truck?

Personally, I don't like it at all when those trucks are two toned. The fenders flow with the hood too much, they simply look like they were painted the "wrong" color in my opinon.

I also do not like two tone on those trucks. Stick with the pink if you are secure in your manhood, kidding. I like it.

thanks for the input... i'm completely torn between keeping it one color and two-toning it.
Also, its not as light pink as it appears in the picture. Its almost like a perfect cross between pink and purple. I will try to post some pictures that arent off my phone. But I do agree, its a little too feminine for me.

I like 2 tone on these old trucks, something the OEM never did when new. It depends a lot on the color, I have seen a Dark Blue with Charcoal Grey fenders that was cool. Do what you like, maybe a photoshop job would help.
