I like the 3 tone, maybe a bit darker green to bring it out, or a thin black line to accent it?

I do have the Black and grey. It shows too much dirt. and that is why I want earth tones. I like the All tan but I do link the 2 tone. The dark brown is just a color offered. If I go flat color my choices are limited. I may spray a clear coat as it is easier to make it look correct. I was going to hand paint the black pinstripe. I'm learning how to Air brush now. I may as well learn how to pin stripe.

I like the 2 tone but I think it might look better with a different sort of desert tan color for the main paint. Maybe experiment with different shades of tan/brown on your computer.

maybe I was too subtle. Let me try again.
Mike, I really like the color combination your truck is now. It may be hard to keep clean, but man is it sharp!

I kept on the lookout for a nice green before taking my truck in for body work and paint.I spotted a little mini cooper of all things,sporting a nice modern,classy looking metallic green.Looked into it and found it was mid 2000's metallic British racing green so I went with it.







BMW code 895, PPG 403201, Dupont P1318

I like the black and silver for sure. I like it a lot. I'm not sure I want to test the waters spraying the silver for one but I hate washing and waxing. not to mention black is not forgiving and I would need to really be sure my body work is perfect.
