    Cool Your opion on the new colers to paint my old 70 ford pick up.

     



    I was gonna paint my truck with some flames but after much thought I don't think it would look right on that style truck. So I am now thinking of a two tone and since the inside of the truck is already a nice deep metal flake blue I am thinking of doing the top half of the truck Metal flake blue again and then the lower half. which is a couple inches under the door handles to the body line. Then I was thinking of doing it in a smoked silver or grey the rest of the way down. What do you guys think??
    Thanks Kurt

    Sounds like a good combination Kurt... Wth the interior as it is, would have to be something like that or a solid color I suppose?? I dunno, I've got a really lousy eye for color....

    Sounds cool, Kurt. Im not a big dark blue fan but with a two tone I think it'll look good.

    Ya I am color blind so it has to be something that I can see, if you know what I mean.
    I was thinking of a white but I keep thinking that will look like everything else you see out there.
    Then I seen this smoked silver car pulled in next to my truck and it clicked.
    I think I just have to be smacked up side the head before anything clicks for me.
    Atleast thats what my mother used to say, HE! HE! HE!
    Thanks Kurt

    Factory two-tones were usually something like this pic. Where you draw the line is up to you but I just thought I'd give you a point of reference. Nixing the flames was a good idea on that style of truck. Some shades of silver/gray work well with dark blue. I would try to find some color chips and compare them to the blue you already have to make sure it works together. Good luck.

    Hey, you're welcome Kurt. That's just a random pic I pulled up from a google search for 70 F100's. I drive a 66 F100 shortbed styleside as my daily driver and also participate in a couple of truck forums for 60-70's Ford pickups. I think they're pretty cool trucks and have a lot of potential. You should post up some pics of yours so we can see what you're working with.

    Here are some photo's Randyr.
    Flickr: kurtvara's Photostream
    The paint is faded now and has started to chip in some places.
    I don't believe they used the right primer under the paint because it is not adhearing very well to the paint.
    So it all has to be sanded down to the metal, and when I pull off the chrome molding there were a few rust
    hole where dirt got trapped behind it and rusted thru. I have fixed a few of the holes all ready but have to
    buy skins for the lower doors and install them.

    That looks like a pretty nice little truck there, Kurt. Is that an original ford blue? Too bad it's chipping and peeling. I'm not sure where you live but I'd check craigslist & pickapart for possible replacement doors before reskinning those. Good doors can usually be found pretty cheap on these truck and it might save you a lot of labor. Just a thought. I just bought 2 really nice rust-free doors for my 66 for $100/pr. That was cheaper than doing the repairs on my existing doors. Of course, I still have to paint them.

    I just helped a buddie do his before I moved from florida.
    The new lower skins, slide up from the bottom of the door and are lipped
    on the sides and bottom. So it wraps around the door, then you just spot
    weld around the sides and bottom and you can glue or weld along the top
    then put filler in on the seam. I'll cut out the bad spots first then put
    welders primmer on that and go from there.
    My friends came out real nice and you could not even tell it had been done
    after just the filler was added.

    Yep I still have the mustang, Lamin8r.
    Those are old pictures though, That mustang only has 11,000 miles on it now.
    And that is only because I drove it to our new home in Pahrump Nevada 3,000
    miles away. It's a 2007 that we got in the end of 2006!!!
