    Ah cool, blank slate... I'm always like Metallic blue with a pearl (white) flame overlay. If you want red and blue... I'd go with gold base coat and do the red flames and the blue body in a candy (transparent colors).

    whoa...whoa...this is not gonna be a show truck (however, I do like your ideas...maybe for my 71 stepside). This is a trail beater. I am gonna spray it with bedliner...yeah, that's right, bedliner. Flames will be red, and the rest will be dark blue. I was just wanting pics of k5's with flames so I could get some ideas.

    We spray bedliners everyday and occasionally insides and outsides of trucks. I figured, why not do my blazer(already did the inside in black). I also figured it may draw some attention to my shop. I have yet to see a two tone bedliner truck. The last whole truck we did, we did it in dark blue and the bed(inside) was black. Turned out really good.

    Any suggestions?

    Take a look at my Triumph on my web site http://www.southernspeedservices.com .I stole the idea from gaylords, the tonnaeu cover people.It's magenta over silver fading to purple at the end of the flames. They've got it on a 50's truck and it looks soooo cool! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
