    Default Two Tone Paint

    I am thinking about two-toning my 09 Silverado. It is Silver Birch and I was thinking of haveing the top half painted and cleared. It looks like every other truck and I hate vinyl so that typer mod is out. I was even thinking SS type stripes. Any ideas or sites where I could get some ideas.
    Thanks

    I had my 05' two toned, the factory color was silver birch metallic like yours. I had them paint the bottom black onyx with the pearl mixed in it, that cost me about $8,000 to have the bottom of the truck done at the body shop. Here's a picture

    My truck is an 02, me and a friend two toned it in his body shop after it was wrecked. Most of the work was disassembling everything so that it could be painted for the color change. 1k total cost, paint has 2 pearls in all colors. Price was cheaper because i did all the labor except for spraying it.

    There is a "old body style" around the lake that is lighter on bottom and black on the upper body and it looks really nice. I have not seen any NBS turcks in 2tone.

    Thanks for the replies. I think I like the darker bottom half than the top. Now what color? Guess I will let my nbetter half help pick that out.
