Sonic Blue with silver would look great IMO. You don't see many newer Rangers with two tone paint.

That House of Kolor Kobalt Blue looks great too.

he could learn and do it himself. I do my own paintwork. Its better than a hookup. I dont even have to pay for paint. or sandpaper. or masking tape. or use my own sprayguns. or....

read my sig... I do this all day, lol JK

how to do it... in PS E 5.0 (im at home)

use the polygonal selector tool, select what you want... then while still selected right click to Layer via Copy, click that, then go to edit>enhance>adjust color>adjust hue and sat. then drag the slider to no saturation(B/W) then change the lightness... to fix your overspray or w/e use the eraser, and it will show layer underneath

*most folks go in there add a fill layer and edit the opacity, you can do that too but you loose the reflections...

I like this, choose a pin stripe of your choice or leave it. Get an EDGE decal made to look like the newer "Level II" door stickers.
