2-Tone Paint Schemes For '79 Trucks

I'm wanting to pull my flat bed off of my '79 F-350 4x4 and put the box back on. I'm going to be doing a few modifications over the next few months.....or longer, and that includes giving it a new paint job. I have sifted through some of the galleries, but I guess I would like to know what is more "original" for this era of truck. I'm not doing a restoration, but I think these look pretty good with the 2-tone paint schemes. If you have a picture in your gallery, or any input, let me know. Thanks

When I first bought my truck I was not crazy about the colors. They have really grown on me, when I paint it again, it will be the same factory two tone - metallic green top and bottom, silver in the middle. Mike

Bottom right is the original paint & trims schemes.

Exterior is more dependent on the interior colour.

I like Blue/silver, Red/Silver,D Blue/L Blue.

Is it possible to get that "lower" trim? My '79 was a solid color, and it appears that the two-tones all have that lower chrome trim. I have seen two-tone paint schemes that were just one color above the upper trim piece and another color below it. They didn't fluctuate from one to another and back to the other, they just went from one color to the next. I guess those paint jobs weren't factory.

Just a few thoughts for users to make things copacetic on this the busiest FTE forum.

Posting Big Pics is frowned upon.

Posting Little pics is fine

Please Remember to post Link's for dial-up users.

Also,
And posting a Quote with a big pic in it (just under the post) is a big no-no and is a waste of space.

Instead : Address your post in that person's name who you are directing your comments to.


ie (without the photo):
Cowboy,
Looks like you have some work cut out for ya! Good luck! Let us know what you plan on doing.
