I am prepping the old unibody for a quick paint job to make it look presentable as a daily driver. I am wanting to two tone the body. My dad has a gallon of chrome yellow laying around and I think all yellow will be a bit much. I think a white or off white traditional two tone will tone it down a bit.
On a standard back window unibody, where do you tape the side of the roof. Do you go from where the door meets the cab down to the bed bodyline, or paint inside the indention of the rear pillar all the way around?

Do you want it to look factory?
One of Ford's factory two-tone schemes for the '61-'66 F-series came all the way down to the bottom of the hood line, then back over the doors (including the window frames), and continuing the same line back over the box. Then the cab top got the body color instead of white. So the hood was white, but the cab top was body color. Maybe that would be called three-tone....
On my '64 F-350, I just took white down to the break at the pillar and around under the back window on the same line. Window frames on the doors stayed body color too. Same on my '71 Dodge and '56 GMC, which is a more traditional two-tone style compared to above.
I looked on google under images last night. I found a very nice one yellow and white. I noticed some paint the whole tailgate white with the middle body color. Others paint the tailgate the roof and lower body color. Ithink I like the all white tailgate.
