Orange Trucks... Lets See Em

I am nearing the point of getting my motor up and running and getting my truck driving for the first time in a 7 years. It is stock orange and white, which was repainted once. I have some rust to fix, but I want a plan for my paint. I want a stock look, but something that allows the truck to stand out. It is 2 tone orange and white. I am wondering if maybe I go solid orange? Skip the white. Etc. Let me see some options.

Re: Orange Trucks... Lets See Em

Two tones always stand out, and orange is a pretty bright color...I would repaint it stock, but that's just my opinion.

If you have a custom truck and want something BRIGHT look into House of Kolor Tangelo pearl. It has a nice look as rounded edges rollover on body contours. Pretty spectacular color.

Re: Orange Trucks... Lets See Em

Not mine but i've always liked orange trucks. My 72 was factory orange and i will probably go back to that when i get around to painting it one day. The 3rd pic is a sad pic, saw that truck sitting at a local body shop recently...

Re: Orange Trucks... Lets See Em

My truck is green, but Hugger Orange and white is my all time favorite paint scheme. Medium red looks orange when it fades. See pic.

Re: Orange Trucks... Lets See Em

Mine was white/Hugger orange/white from the factory, but my father in law had it repainted and the lower white was painted orange. I'll eventually repaint the lower white again, since I like it better.
