please paint my truck for me
i've gotta paint it. its my daily driver, and hideously deformed from the paint damage. the pictures make it look better than it really is.

im kinda torn between four paint schemes.
1. black top half (grille, hood, and the hood seam back) bright frigging orange bottom.
2. same as above, only sublime green bottom.
3. again, same as #1, only semigloss on the top and gloss black bottom
4. back in black.
5. any other tasteful ideas that y'all may have

gonna paint the handles and bumpers body color, if at all possible.
what im really going for is just a clean, muscular look. kinda a vintage (1969/1970) trans am look.

heres the photobucket account if you need it.

so heres the pics i have. they're dirty, but its cold, and im too lazy to wash trashed paint. at the bottom is a sketch i had a friend do to kinda show me, but im not visual enough to see it on a real truck.

I wouldn't go bacl as far as the '60's. I'd paint it like a 1978 Aspen Super Coupe.

Flat black hood and roof. Dark Sable Brown or the Crimson Red Met lower separated by a blue and red stripe.

i will give it a go later tonight.

dusterbd 03-07-2007 07:50 PM

thanks. i gave a lot of shots just for something to work with.
as far as the super coupe idea, i just cant do it. i want something either more sinister, or more "please arrest me, Mr. Officer". ive owned one brown car, and i just dont like em. that, and my fiancee would laugh at me.

Meka 03-07-2007 07:54 PM

any picture you want me to do it on, and how bright orange are we talking here?

dusterbd 03-07-2007 07:57 PM

any picture that will work for you. whole side would be preferable.

as far as the brightness, i was actually thinking either chevy hugger orange, or the orange that ford is using now. so pretty bright.
thanks for dong this for me sir. ive gotta figure out the colors before my painter will give me a quote.


Meka 03-07-2007 08:07 PM

alright ill give it a go here in a bit

Meka 03-07-2007 09:08 PM

its done just doin a little fine tuning

dusterbd 03-07-2007 09:16 PM

thanks a lot man. i really do appreciate this.


Meka 03-07-2007 09:19 PM

not the greatest but i think it give you the idea. Thought about maybe black hockey stripes? :D

dusterbd 03-07-2007 09:28 PM

wow. that is cool. i messed around with photoshop for like three hours and never figured it out. you have some talent there, man.
and i wonder if hockey stripes would make the bed look absormally long or not....

thanks again for this. and if you get bored in the future, feel free to try the green, too. but if i go green, ill have to get a shaker hood....maybe a spoiler, etc..

so what do you think of the orange?


Meka 03-07-2007 09:36 PM

I really like the orange. I tried going brighter only to get black splotches on the pictures not sure why. You want me to go ahead and do a green one? Personally i think it would look great with black hockey stripes.

dusterbd 03-08-2007 05:06 AM

ifyou feel like going green, please do. ive already got some green paint left over from the race car. (yep. our race car is sublime green. and its a vette.and my dad picked it!) and is it hard to do the hockey stick? if it isnt, feel free to throw it on there.
