Had a buddy of mine from another website whip up a quick thing of what my truck could look like.

I'm thinking of painting the hood black, and getting the 3/4 lower.

What do y'all think?



My biggest thing is the paint scheme. Do y'all like the black hood, or should I go all out with a two tone paintjob? Yellow bottom, black top, limo tint windows.

NOTE: I'm not getting the paint done for a while, probably until late Summer, but I like opinions on things.

i think black from the pinstripe down would look better then from the pinstripe up. yellow on black looks better to me then black on yellow.. if you get what im sayin.

Just a black hood looks like you wrecked your truck and put on one from the salvage yard and haven't got it painted to match yet. Go from the body line up for a custom look.

Well the thing for that is the tinted windows. When I get 'em done, I don't think yellow on top would look right with it. Hmm.. Maybe I'll have someone do both in photoshop, to get a feel of how it might look..

Oooh, maybe a silver pinstripe between the black and yellow that splits into a checkered pattern at the rear? That'd be pretty cool.

Ahh, so many things I'd like to do.. I really need more trucks and cars so I can do 'em, haha.

Now that would be nice... I've seen some S-10s done up like that and they look good. I imagine a Colorado would look just as good if not better.

Not too fond of rally stripes. Just something about 'em doesn't get me going.

maybe the front bumper(not the piece around the fogs just the piece between there and the grille) and back bumper black and then if you got a body kit that was black and some black wheels, then some SS mirrors painted black and your handles painted black(i know they already are but a gloss black to match everything else)

That might be cool. I'll have to look at some images for that too. Photoshop.. here I come. hah.

And would you believe me that I just noticed my handles are black? For some reason, I thought they were yellow..

I personally think it would, or maybe a ram air hood with some yellow accents in the ram part :D Lol you'd be surprised what ya look at after somebody mentions it that you didnt notice before

That'd be cool. Maybe a tiny bit of yellow pinstriping overtop of the ram inlet as well if I can have the design laid out right. Hmmm. AHHH!! SO MANY IDEAS!! lol.

And yeah, you're right. Some things I've never noticed until they were mentioned. I'm not slow, and I'm normally really observant.. But for some reason.. eh.

Paint it black from the pin stripe up. Or do like a 2-3" silver stripe at the pin stripe then black on top.
I would agree either above or below the stripe, probably below in my opinion
