Future paint job

Next year i want to paint my truck. The paint is all scratched and beat up and my truck has little rust so why not. I had my girlfriend photo shop the paint job for me but i want everyones opinion on it.

Here a before pic...



Heres the future paint job. I want to paint the truck black and then have a ford bluw stripe run along the bottom of the truck.



Oh and the rims will be painted too. lol. What do you all think?

Looks good to me, dude. But I think true ford blue is a shade or two brighter. Even still, I think it will look good.

NOBAMA!!


Is it just me, or does it seem like all Dodge drivers are A$$holes?

It's actually not ford blue in the picture. It's hard to match it on photo shop. Lol. I probably will end up getting different black rims.
