I been wanting a matching paint fleet of trucks for a minute now. I like the two tone style almost like brickman. Something that stands out to separate my trucks. Almost like you dont have to see the decals to know whos truck it is.

Originally I was thinking yellow and black. All my mowers, plows and sanders are yellow. One of the trucks is all yellow and the front is still nice but the bed is banged up and scratched.

Now I'm leaning towards green and black. I just like the colors better and think it would look good with lettering.

As of now I have a yellow, 2 white and a white and black truck.

The two largest companies both have red trucks with yellow and black lettering.

In case your wondering I'm going to paint them all myself. After the first paint job the cost of the others will be only paint and sandpaper. Nothing I'm going to rush into but I would to have a plan in place.

So what do you guys think?

If you spray paint the rims maybe a nice magenta, they will stand out. Or maybe all the trucks in a tiger stripe pattern?

I like the green and black idea...maybe a darker green with white lettering? Or orange lettering?

I was thinking something like this. Or even the other way with the bed black. As long as that decal on the window stays.

Doesn't look too bad, but not really sure on the green and black idea, doesn't look right for some reason. If I can ever get my dang funding I plan on having a yellow pick up truck, and then when I get the enclosed trailer paint it yellow, mainly because everyone around doesn't stand out much, so I get what you are saying about wanting to stand out. Not sure what LawnBoy is thinking with tiger stripes....that would look like a bikini going down the street LOL :D

A tattoo. You'd be the real deal and 100% legit! Tiger stripe mowers, trucks and tatoo? YES!

How would you paint this? Would the doors be green or black? Or how would the two tone be split up?

I wasnt sure about that part. I wouldnt mind some ideas.

I like the bed black, doors yellow or green but then not sure if I should do the hood black the fenders green/yellow or the whole front black.
