Paint prep need suggestion

So as you all know i have the dredded high speed paint removal system on my 90 dak so in the spring/summer im repainting (im an aircraft painter, so i have the know how, and the tools)

so wondering what you all think

full black
black lower silver upper
keep it the stock dark blue, light blue, dark blue
or something else?

The interior is going mainly black, been looking at gettng custom covers done for the seats, and have already put in a new black headliner.

Solid black is to much work to keep it looking good. Maybe use one of your factory colors with some tame stripes or graphics. Or you could do a 2 tone with the colors you have only run it at the bodyline instead of down the middle of the truck. Jst my $.02
