Two Tone Fridge Photos

I am getting ready to start the painting process for my fridge. I have always loved the way the factory did the two tone treatment on the styleside fridge trucks but with the flareside bed, the lines don't lend themselves to the same treatment. What I want is the meadow green with a white roof, but I'm not sure where to start and stop on the roof. I think I may have seen some with the whole cab top including the top of the doors white, and maybe some with just the roof. I think I would prefer it to follow the sweeping line behind the door or something that would include the back side of the cab. Any pics of two tone cab and chassis rigs or flaresides? I realize maybe standard cabs didn't come from the factory as two tones, but I'm still gonna do it because I like the look. Thanks in advance, GB

There are 3 versions of the 2-Tone paint job on the Styleside & Flareside Orphan Years trucks.

The Cap of the Cab stopping @ the first demarcation line in Colonial White.
The whole Top of the Cab down to the Window Shelves, not bellow them, in Colonial White.
Lastly, The whole Top of the Cab down to the Window Shelves, once again, not bellow them, in the Primary Colour, then from the bottom of the Window, bellow the Shelves, in Colonial White down to the demarcation Line, then the rest of the truck down in the Primary Colour.

This intel comes from several Dealer Brochures & other FoMoCo Literature, as well as Pix.
One could Special Order any Option that FoMoCo offered.
You can find Pix in My Gallery, just click on my name, a Pop Up will appear.
Scroll down to My Gallery, click on it, the page will open, then scroll down to '57-'60 Trucks, locate them.

As far as getting 'fancy out there', for me that's the 8.00 paint brush instead of the throw aways. Gotta admit I have been known to use the foam ones on large flat areas!

Colonel,

Thanks so much for the pics. Been so busy with family and work and Christmas, I hadn't taken enough time before to look at them all. Just what I needed!

I painted my whole interior with a foam brush. My wife wouldn't let me use the broom!
