Electric blue or hunter green anyone?

Im looking for a new paint color for my truck. I found a beautiful electric blue, and another really deep, hunter green. Does anyone have an 80-86 either of these colors? Please post some pics. If you have another color that you think is really good, post it up, id like to see it, my hearts not set on either of these colors, i was also looking at a burnt orange. Thanks everyone!

2 tone red and white



I will be swapping out the cab and the bed this coming weekend, so it wont even be the same color. The cab is tan i believe. My buddy had the cab and bed, he got them off an older gentleman who had it garage kept since 83, its a lariat, in pristine condition, he says practically brand new. Either i cant beat it, hes giving it to me!

I'd paint that beast flat black.

But that's just me.

I think Dark Brown/Beige two tone looks nice.I may be very slightly biased however.

Talking Electric Green?

How about a compromise between electric blue and hunter green?

Haha! What about racing stripes? Any opinions?

I was thinking hunter green with some kind of white trim somewhere...not sure where though....

If I go blue, the whole truck will be blue, I'm getting bushwacker fender flares and ill keep them black or linex them, and ill have DC-2 black & brushed aluminum rims. And a black grill and headlight surround.

The green is real nice, but the blue will be easier, and almost as nice. Shell look good wen I'm done, either way. Were putting a cab, and I think a bed on this weekend, my buddy got them from a guy tht kept his 83lariat garage kept, since then. So the body is damn near perfect. And I'm only giving him a $150 welder for it, he's the man. Hell of a deal.
