    I have a 88 sierra and it was a weed man truck! I am thinking about painting it electric blue or red. Electric blue is the blue that you see on most dodge vehicals. If anyone has any other recomendations please post a picture of your truck. Also i want to save a little money so what prep work can i do my self do get it ready to spray. The truck has absolute no rust so what are the steps sand with 120 grid ect

    I would go with a Deep Purple full of metal flake . Just to be different from the crowd. Maybe some gold or silver striping

    Just make sure to paint the door jambs and under the hood... Nothing looks more unfinished than a great looking truck with a great paint job with jambs that don't match when you open the door!

    I think Pearl white would look awesome on an older truck

    Back in the 80's & 90's they had a couple good 2-tone combinations on their trucks. One was the bright blue metallic/black and the other was deep red metallic/black. 2-tone paint isn't the big thing anymore, but it kicked a## on these trucks.
