If you go 2-tone, please paint both colors. Ive seen a few that just sprayed a second color over the stock color and it stuck out like a sore thumb. It all depends on how you do it, ive seen some i like and some i didnt. Just search for pics and get an idea what u like.

It depends on how much of each color you want. Personally I think if you are going to two tone it it is best to follow body lines so it flows better. My suggestion would be to either go high (like right below the window where it flows from the front fender) or low (where the body moldings would be). Just my $.02 on the matter.

Yep Thats Wat Im doing the whole truck is getting repainted. Im changing my bottom factory color up a little, going a couple shades lighter and adding more metallic. I think ive got a pretty good idea now on what to do for the lines i hope it looks good. Im freakin anxious to just see my hood on there lol
