Paint ideas

I have been having trouble trying to visualize what paint color(s) would look good on my K20. What I came up with that is helpful for me, and maybe helpful for you, is the attached modified line drawing of a stepside in .jpg format. It will open in any photo editing software and you can change the color(s) by doing a "bucket fill" of each of the truck sections. I have been "saving as" each different color scheme as a different file; that way I can compare and also have a blank pallet to work with the next time I get a bright idea about paint. The grey / white combo is the original colors of my truck. If there is interest I will do the same for a fleetside, just let me know.

That's a good thought. I hadn't taken it that far but you have given me ideas....
