Need Yalls Opinion

Im goin to get my fender vents painted, just not sure how I want to get it done. I figured yall could give me some more ideas and maybe a photoshop or two.

I thinkin about painting it all the King Ranch Dark Copper with the letters tan. Ive had a couple people say to paint it all Dark Copper and leave the King Ranch part chrome.

Let me know what yall think.

Thanks.





Here is a pic of the whole truck from a while back. The only thing different is the Ford emblem is painted Dark Copper also.








Here is what Im thinking about doin to my headlights, but with Dark Copper of course.




So when its all said and done, everything should be color matched.

Thanks guys.

My vote for vents is leave king ranch silver and paint the entire rest copper. Maybe even take the enamel out of the king ranch letters. On the lights, I'd think about leaving them or going with the lower tan color for em. I think it will look like they don't match with how much metallic is in the copper combined with the curve on the edge of the light....

paint the chrome side vent copper, paint the maroon mesh black, leave the king ranch emblem alone, try to keep the "f250 lariat super duty" black if possible.

Black out the housing on the headlights, it will mesh well with your black mirrors and grille.

Ive thought about getting Harley Headlights, but I didnt think the black would look good when looking from the back of the truck.

Well got my Ford emblems back and my fender vents. Didnt put the back emblem on since it was about to rain. Sorry for the dirty truck(been raining for a week straight), cloudy sky, and bad pics(camera was foggin up).






More clean pics to come soon.

Thanks.

Me too, but it looks like there is no end to this rain...Im hoping it will slow up a little Friday, enough to wash it and get a few pictures.
