I am going to order a new black grill as soon as I get some more money.
I also plan on buying lense covers for the rear tail lights.
The pictures do not even come close to showing how good the red and the black are blended together.
truck was painted all black to the wheel wells and up 3 inches then starts to blend, at this point you can barely see the red coming through the black.
The next 3 inches you can see a little more red coming through.
Then in the last 3 inches you can see most of the red coming thrugh the black.
Agreed. I usually don't like them because they are done wrong. I like the look of that truck but it has mistakes. The tailgate black goes up higher. Also it looks to me like the fade is uneven which is the main problem with most out there. However the uneven fade might be the light. If I had closer pictures I could tell. Still looks cook though.
Edit: I missed the last close up picture. That fade is very uneven but it can be fixed.
It is not a fade it is more of a blend.
When a color is faded the color gets lighter and lighter, with black it goes to gray.
With the sun out on the truck you can see the red through the black just barely right above the wheel well. On the next pass the gun is held farther back and more red can be seen through the black, the last pass was done with a touch up gun.
There was tons of overpray that had to be sanded off but you could not put tape down and sand to the tape or you would end up leaving a hard line.
The paint on the tailgate is the same height as the rest of the truck but there is a line in the tailgate that makes it look like a shadow.
Thanks for the compliments
Not sure I like it all that much. Would prefer a hard line I think. I'll bet it is an effect that looks a lot better in person though. The photochops did a great job of predicting how it would look though. You need to buy that guy a beer.
Big question now is: Red Truck Club or Black Truck Club??
