Vote on a Paint color for my truck

I'm going to be painting the BEATER. This is what it looks like now.


I found a place where you can buy everything you need for 65. I have the place to spray it so I should be good to go.


Here is the website I found the paint

Ok so I should have said choose a base color for my truck because it will almost always be covered in mud.

The actual truck color now is Black spray paint and white spray paint flames. So a dark color is going to be the easiest to do because the door jambs and things like tht are already black.

I have used them to good for the money you have in on it. I would keep away from the dark colors will show a lot unless the body is great.

Not to concerned about showing imperfections it is a BEATER. I just want it all one color.

I'm actually thinking of spraying it lite enough that the flames ghost through what ever color i decide.

Man that's one dirty truck, whens the last time it was clean? You may find that it just needs a to be run through the truck wash. Just kidding, black would be nice.

Here ya go it's clean and if you notice the date on the pic it is TODAY. I pressure washed the truck and used a couple of cans of krylon until I figure out what color it will end up in real paint.
