That's the color I think. I'll have to try and get a paint code and then buy a pint to see how it looks. Good eyes. Thank you for the information.

Bee4Me Serious tip bro,
Kandy jobs CAN NOT be panel painted. Sorry,but it just don't work that way.
You want a kandy job,It's GOT to be put together, P-E-R-I-O-D......
Jambs and insides are one thing and the odds of it matching the outside are up to the chops of the painter.
Outside, Basically,IMPOSSIABLE.
Kandy has to be sprayed at one time and walk the length if you want a consistant color and the painter best be up to it.
Kandy jobs are the toughest,reason it COSTS so much for a GOOD one.
LOT of work and planning involved along with a super CLEAN spray inviroment,exceptional technique and a lot of luck.
Bikes are 1 thing,A complete vehicle is another all together.
75% of MY work IS kandy and it's a bitsh. You best talk with the painter involved and find out what HE says about it.
The Blitz will have to come afterward as it can't be clear coated.

If it were me I would paint it together but do the jambs first then close the doors and paint the rest but i would slide the bed back so that you could paint the back of the cab and front of the bed .

Maybe I could get the painter to do a two-tone paint job with candy tangerine and Blitz Black. Right now, all the body parts and the bed are off the truck. We're gonna wrap the edges of the new body parts with tape and pre-fit them then paint them off the truck. Before that though, the entire cab, inside and out will be painted the same color. If it all goes as planned, it should turn out nice.

It is a simple BC/CC application and MUCH easier to apply than a three stage candy or pearl.

"Blitz black" may be non compliant in California ONLY because it is a cheap enamel paint. The COLOR "Semi gloss black" or "Flat Black" is NOT banned and you can apply it a number of different ways. Basically a bc/cc but with a "Matte" clear that has no or little gloss.

But I have to say switching from "Blitz black" to that orange is like changing your mind from an Aerostar mini van to a Viper.

Brian
An Aerostar mini van?!?!?!?! Are those words allowed on this website?

I know the Mystic paint isn't a Ford color. I was just poking fun at Fords. No hard feelings. IMO that type of paint only belongs on cars like Vipers. Not so sure about a 5.0 Mustang. Trying to make something out of nothing, you know what I mean?

I found another thread in this forum that talked about John Deere Blitz Black. I spent about an hour going through it. That's the color I originally wanted, but had no idea what it was called. Now that I found it, I've discovered the EPA has banned it in California

If I could find out what color that blue is I would go with that stuff. Looks simple and not too expensive.

Bee4Me try House of Kolor Tangelo pearl.

jcclark I used a single stage urethane by Kirker that was very similar,
a little less "bling" but similar and much easier than a candy.
