i got half of my truck painted today and i wanted to share some pics with everyone. the bottom color is sunset orange and the top colro is a viper silver, its off a 2000 viper, not sure what it was called. im plannign on wet sanding it tomorrow and then laying out the stripe between the color and then clearing it again. the pics really dont do any justice cuz this thing looks wet and shiny in person, i spent countless hours on the body work, its straight as a board. looks sick. im very happy with the way it has turned out so far. what does everyone else think?

this is the silver, only the base coat, i layed out the top color first

thanx everyone, i appreciate all the positive feedback. anyone have any idea for the middle color? i need a color to break up the 2 colors. i was thinking maybe a white basecoat with a blue pearl over it, give it that tri coat look, youll only see the blue pearl at certain angles. think that would look funny? im kind of stuck of stuck on that matter

i think it would look sick if you just did a bright orange pinstripe inbetween the colors. just my oipinion but it looks clean bro!
