Paint advice.

so my dad hit a basket ball hoop years ago and I'm trying to find the best way to fix the paint. I got the dent out but the paint is cracked down to the bare metal. so my options are, paint the lower quarter panel up to the style line and hope the color matches, paint the whole bed or 2 tone the truck.

what do you guys think will give the best result and be the most cost affective.

heres a photo shop of what I would do with the 2 tone. ( gloss black on the truck and matte black flares.)

Maybe do a gray like the new level II's have? And have the flares color matched.

I have all the gear to do it but very little experience with doing cars. ( I spray bikes) but I will most likely have it done at a shop.
