    need help from some of the artistic minds

    while im getting ready to paint my truck ive decided on colors i think but need some ideas aon how to break up the paint im open to suggestion from mundane to wild my colors are a black with some blue pearl, a dark Lemans blue with some extra fine silver flake, burnt orange with the same silver flake as the blue, and a gun metal gray.

    here is a side shot of my truck

    Ive always been a fan of burnt orange and blue...but I think that truck would look better with the gunmetal gray and maybe some lemans blue pin striping along the side or something...thats my .02

    Don't worry g. U got a year to practice painting. U can still do the vette color!
    And to the op. As far as blue goes... I'm a big fan of the SSS arrival blue I think is it's name. But how are you wanting to break up the colors? The usual is follow the body line or the bottom of the window. But a two tone in those colors may be a little loud...

    orange and gunmetal gray. break them up along the body line. orange on top. dont do some spikes or waves or anything just a nice smooth line. and a black pinstripe to break them up. that would look sick IMO

    I was wondering if some one could photoshop the pic and give me an idea on where to break the paint, dang sportside is hard to find a break point. If some one could do that for me that would be awsome
