Honest opinions !

ok guys, I need some opinions, I know all you wont have a problem with that. I bought the truck with this paint scheme, orange, black, and white with a little vinyl pinstriping tape between each color. The paint isnt done all that bad actually the paint is pretty good quality. I thought it would grow on me, but Im still not sure if I like it or not.
Sooooo opinions ! should I keep it ? or spray over it and do a stock white ?

It is unique... but ugly as sin. It's not the three color scheme that's bad its the color choice.

What color is the tailgate?

I think it would be cool to do something with the color scheme on the tailgate instead of it being just white.

Hmm to all you paint guys... How much would you say it would cost to mask off along the line and just repaint the upper orange part? Basically just the cab, bedrails, and most of the hood? I realize it would be a lot of masking and it would have to be a good shop.

if you got rid of the black it would look great. using only a small pinstripe between the orange and white. like either a thin black line or a thin lime green line.

If the black stripe didn't go over the hood I would like it better.

It would look really good with some pre runner type fenders IMO
