i have a 1979 f-150 4x4 with 7 inches of lift with 36's on it. it is a shorebed stepside truck. I am paintign it a metalflake blue (not dark blue or light blue its more less a darker blue but not to dark). It has alot of metalflake in it tho. I am painting the whoel truck that color. I was wodnerign anyone have any sugestions wut i can do to the paint job to make it stand out more? I mean there is alot of one color trucks out there. I want soemthting different that not to many people have out there.
PS it has a hood scoop on it (only bout 2.5 inches high in middle of hood) i also nicknamed the truck "The Bruzer" because when done its goign to be black and blue but i wanna do soemthgin to make her stick out!
anyone have any ideas like 2 tomoe or soemthing or idk anything maybe airbrush work idk... I got the interior paitned body color with black dash pad, and black trim black doorpanel trim and sunvisors and well grey carpet and seat and silver headliner trim (headliner is made out fo black crushed velour) and black sunvisors and chrome sunvisor holders and well it looks pretty good i really am pleased with how the inside of it looks
In my opinion if the blue your describing is what I am thinking I would imagine a white or silver accent color would look good. Looking at a pic of a stepside bed I don't think a two tone would work but maybe some new age flames or even lighting bolts shooting down the sides might set it off enough.
It's tough to pull off a "traditional" two-tone scheme on a stepper, but what I have seen done that I like is doing the front portion of the cab one color of your choice with an upward angled (or radiused) color change ending about bed height. Then the bed is done all in the other color. So you end up with the hood, roof and most of the fron fender/door in one color and the rear another. Blue front/black rear and maybe separate the two colors with a "divider" of the interior gray/silver. Just a thought...
