Icon5 two tone like 06 or color match???

ok so im going to chip guard my truck from the body line down to the bottom of the truck. and i want some opinions on if i should go with red like my truck, or use the paint code CX from 06>?? I like the idea of something different. and would have any issues with color match. I work at a body shop so i'll do it and what not. i was going to paint some masking papper the CX and put it next to the truck to see if i liked it or not. Plus i;m goin to paint the fender flairs CX anyway for something different.


Here is a pic ture of mine BTW

Ok so I used your pic and also used a pic of Pedros truck because they are fairly similar. Let me know if you want other colors.

No not really if you want to try black go ahead but i think ill just get a good match, plus theres a good body line that should help out. I was just trying to keep cost down being red is the most expensive solids..

Yeah? thats not to bad actually it looks more gray to me but i was thinking black before anything until i seen a DSG ranger.. The chip guard is black so coverage would be alot easier then red even though you would normally use a dark sealer.
