Unsure of what color to paint my car HELP


Recommended Posts

My car is a week or two away from paint and im down to the wire on what color to paint it it is going to be two tone about 2 inches from the bottom of the top most body line. the bottom color will be silver with charcoal metalflake. the top color is what im unsure of. im thinking either blue with silver metalflake or black with gold metalflake

im going to be doing sprayout panels of all my color options but until then here is what my car looked like before just so you can get a rough idea of the car... opinions?

I love that color but I don't know about on a classic Bonnie. I was gonna say the IBM color but once again I'm not sure on a classic Pontiac.

I've just been a huge fan of black on classic cars or a light blue but that's just me :dancingpontiac:

that blue is the original color of my car but my car will be highly modified when done.

im thinking black with black metal flake, maybe with some blue pearl? on the bottom and BMW alpine white on the bottom

the black will be VERY close to this but with larger flake. mine wont be metallic it will be actual metal flake mixed into the clear

Do you have an example of the metal flake?

I have always been partial to the Black Cherry that is on the 96 Impala SS. But if you are stuck on black or blue I say blue but go very dark. No metal flake.

Shitty picture but heres black metal flake. the flake im ordering is .004 millimeters in diameter so it will be a little smaller flake but you get the idea. god theres so many variances in flake lol

Depending on how dark or light the silver/charcoal metal flake is, you might consider a color scheme GMC used on the early 2-door Yukon GTs. It was a sharp blue and a quicksilver with a small lower red accent stripe and red GT letters. They also had a red and quicksilver version.

I also am partial to a bright red (some people like to call it "resale" red) with silver.
