Thinking to repaint truck for my bday :)

Postby 2001 silverado LS [OP] » Aug 08 2013, 7:34am

So my hood needs painted, and some of you may know, my truck is scratched to hell and I have to replace my rockers. So I think I want to do a full repaint. What do you guys think? I like the blue, but I like black too.

Same blue will be cheaper because they wouldn't have to tear the truck apart to paint the door jams, firewall, etc. for a full paint job. Or you can just paint the exterior black for example, but the jams and underhood would still be blue on cheaper paint jobs. just my .02

Same blue, but have them put a little more metallic in the paint or a pearl top coat, just for something a little different.

I'll be the one-off here....i'll go with "other." it's obvious you plan on keeping the rig a while, so if you have the opportunity to get a full job for only the cost of material, go with any color in the wheel man. I would be asking myself what mods am I doing later on that I can accent to the paint or vice versa?...standard colors like blue/black are nice, but if I was going in, I'd go all in for a color that was unique and that I could enjoy for years to come...just my .02....but if you were strictly between blue/black, I'd go black.
