bronze, coniston, or Eastnor. I would stay away from trendy color like Kent or Keswick, no staying power.
Stick with a classic color.

IMHO, Epsom green is THE color for a 110.

Isn't he asking what colors would go well with sandstone? I think all the metallics and stuff would look crappy on the lower half of a truck with sandstone uppers...

Yes I was asking about greens that would go well with limestone. All of the soon to be formerly brown bits are now with the painter and Keswick Green is the winner. I like many of the options mentioned, some for my rig and others to admire on more modern rigs. Thanks to all. Pics in a week or so when I get the body back.

One piece of advice I had been given was to "find a good paint guy and then trust him" and my paint guy strongly recommends PPG Concept Urethane. Evidently, not all paint colors can be mixed in each paint system (Concept, base/clear, Omni etc.) and according to two paint shops and the PPG Color Library Keswick Green is one that can be mixed in the base/clear or Omni but not Concept. Does anyone have a paint formula to mix Keswick in PPG Concept Urethane?

The guy only wants to use one specific line of paint from one company? That's weird.

From what I was told, Acrylic Enamels are the least expensive and very prone to fading, scratches etc. Just plain old crap for paint (typically used by MAACO like places). Urethanes like PPG Concept are much better paints than enamels. Base/clear usually use a urethane clear and can be very good but are more expensive that single stage urethanes... Just trying to find my way through this new phase of the build.

I used PPG Concept on my truck and love it. It's very durable and just about as glossy as a base/clear, but it's single stage. My local store mixed up Sandglow no problem, so I'm surprised they can't mix Keswick Green. It's not metallic is it?

Spies Heckler makes awesome paint combo, no single stages ( base/clear urethane )

That was the tanning used on Shrek

Some people really dig black, but that's just not my thing. Now that red one is almost too nice.
