Changing Colors

I'm wanting to go from this color:


To this color:


How do i get a good match in paint? My dad's friend is one of the best painters in my area. So i could probably get a good price. Could i purchase this paint from ford? I'm sure my dad's friend could mix the paint to match but i'd like for it to be exact. thanks

All you need to do is call Ford and get the paint code for the FX4 gray. Any paint shop can mix it based on the code.

they can just paint the 2 tone part? and not have to do the whole truck? Let me know how much that runs if you don't mind. I've been thinking about blacking out my truck for a while now.

yours would be much more difficult as they would have to try and color match the black on that has faded since new. he is just changing one color to another, and leaving the while alone. As long as no body repair is involved his is a quite simple process.

ive seen that kind of paint job done for around $300. it only cost ford around that much to two-tone the trucks when you order them.

Thinking of doing the same thing......don't have the rocker panels gray, just the bumpers and fender flares. I was thinking about leaving the fender flares gray, but having the front and rear bumpers powder coated white to match the rest of the truck. Please post pics if you make the change.
