been thinking about painting my ESV 2-tone since I bought it....then I hit a deer 2 weeks ago and it did some damage to the lower cladding...insurance is paying to fix it, and my dealer says he can paint the whole bottom for a little more (cash)..thinking of going a tan/goldish color (similar to the Lexus sand dollar pearl color) on the diamond

did a photoshop after/before.....any feedback? Or anyone have links of other 2-tone Escalade pics?

ugh, i absolutely hate that kind of two tone. it makes it look like a honda with mismatched body parts. two tones at the upper body line look so much better IMO.

This is an older model escalade from Showfest 2004 in Greeneville MS. It is sprayed HOK Orion Silver as a base coat with HOK Kandy Cobalt Blue over half of the car and then cleared. Maybe you should consider that. Spray any color base coat that you like and then go back and spray a kandy over some parts of it.

no, sh!t it has bags (sarcastic sounding (not mad) with hydraulics it just gets worse unless you do an a arm extension. or you can throw caprice a arms in under it. i dont think you can do that in an Escalade though :hmm: . correct me if im wrong.

I had a few two tone Suburbans, I personally like all one color, but have seen some nice two tone customs.

i don't like that color combo. i don't think the lighter color looks right on top. i've always liked a darker color on the top of the car.

Yeah, you can do it to an escalade. It just may cost more than regular. I have seen a few done by a local custom shop in my area. They cost generaly about 1000 more to bag the 4wds, but there are some new bagz made especially for 4wd rides like Escalade and Z71 Tahoes that make it easier, but it is still a chore. That as why I decided not to bag my escalade and to get a truck to play with. :D You can do anything that you have the patience and more importantly the money for to a vehicle. ;)
