truck paint scheme

so i think ive decided to keep my dodge truck and customize it into a cool truck that can double as a company advertisement.

what do you guys think of this?
( dont give to hard a time it was a quick job on paint)

if i do something like this should i have it painted ( not good for resale) , decals ? or body wrap?

how much would i be looking at?

please dont get to upset , but im going to post a pic of my boat so you can see what im shooting for. i will delete after i get some feedback... i value your guys opinions so if you could bare with me it would be great..

I like the paint scheme, but you can forget the part about "bare with me". I don't play that. (however, I will bear with you, big difference)

I think paint would have greater longevity, and if it is done tastefully and professionally shouldn't drastically affect your resale. Obviously the text portion should be vinyl or magnetic graphics and not painted on. I don't really like spreading the text out all over the truck as it makes it harder to follow, but that's up to you.

Check into screening. I have seen a lot of autos used as advertising, and the resolution is the best. They can actually take a photo and reproduce it with amazing resolution.

Paint looks good but what happens next week when you decide to buy a new boat and it doesn't match?

I would paint the truck and then do vinyl decals for the lettering. I agree with what was said above in that I think it is hard to read with phone number, name, address all in different places. I would try to group it closer together if possible.

Get rid of the blue 45degree angle in the back. Either continue on with a new color of the same pattern as the front, or eliminate it. And/or raise the front pattern and put some lines in the hood too.

I'm with "workin' 4 toys" on the angle thing. I think that angles will tend to hurt your resale. I like the idea of posible "deck" stripes on the hood.

About the magnetic decals...don't do it. I had my company name and info on a mag and it ended up trashing the paint underneath.

Rodlt, the angles are giving me an eighties kinda feel but the colors will look good.



while you are at it, try to get them to make that boat look better
