    I recently bought myself a 2002 with a really bad paint job... :annoyed: and I am trying to photoshop colors to see what would look like but the thing is that I fail at life with photo shop I am thinking to paint it either Black, Indigo Ink Pearl, Speed Blue Metalic, Or White including the grille. If I can just please have some one do this for me I would insanely appreciated. Thanks in advance God bless! :D

    Luis,
    Just watch for the trucks around your city and when you see a red, green, blue, pink, whatever color you like just take a photo. Now that you have one you'll start seeing them everywhere. No need to play photoshop unless you want to. You could also just look for photos on the net, save you some time.
    Best of luck,

    I'm no pro but I do like cutting my friends heads off and putting them on random animals. But here's what I came up. Some random colors you chose, but I tried to get them as close as I could.

    Not exactly perfect but what do you expect for free?

    Just a little something extra.

    Here's the deal and with not knowing whats exactly wrong with the current paint, if it comeing off, cracked, and unless the truck is stripped to good surface the new paint will come off in the near future,so for instance if the trk was an orginal red and you paint it white, when that flakes or peels off around the door handles or where ever you will see red paint especially in the door jams, under the hood ect..

    How much are you looking to spend?

    Painting the entire truck will be very expensive, especially if you want it done right with no bleed through.
