Custom Two tone fade paint need pics

I want to repaint my 1997 F150. Does anyone have a picture of a truck that is black on the bottom and a maroon fade to the top. We are also thinking about doing metalic. We want to show the shop a picture of what we want

Thanks is advance.

Don't have any pics. But sounds like a cool color scheme. My Dad did bodywork, painting, and restoration for 30 + years.

Since you are changing the exterior color are you going to paint things such as door jams, under the hood, etc? That is what I always hated about changing colors.

I have seen some of the F150 XLT Lariat two tones. Some have just the bottom painted and some (the ones I like) have the bottom painted which continues over the fender flares an accross the lower portion of the tailgate. Just something to think about.

Good Luck,

brc

I don't know how much of a fade you are looking for but the colors you are asking resemble the 100th anniversary. Search on Google image the 100th anniversary f150. I think this is flipped around but something to get started.

I should not have to paint under the hood and door jambs, the truck is in immaculate condition. I have been the only owner and we are starting out with the maroon going to black so i think it will all mend well. We are also going with metallic colors

I looked at the 100th anniversary and we want the colors to blend not separate like black then to maroon.....we don't want like a stripe or a line separation but like the colors meld together and then go to black

Ahh I see. I figured that's what you meant but I haven't seen a truck with that type of color scheme. I'd love to see it though, like dark reds.

I was going to say maybe some high end paintshops have a program that will give you the visualization.
