I know this was talked about a little before but I was just wondering what you all think would look good on my car.
Stock my vert is med brown met with med ginger knitted vinyl interior and a white top.
I think I want to keep the ginger interior since I have new carpet for it, came with the car.
the top I want to change to black and I want to do black stripes on the bottom and on the NASA hood.
ether I stay close to the brown ( I really do not think I like the brown) I just picked up some sunburst Gold met and I think it is too lite in color.
Or change to something much different ( white)??
I would love to here what you would think would look better, thanks

Doc..I almost did this brown on my 71 Camaro..But given the deadline I'm under with the car I decided to keep it yellow but 2010 corvette yellow..If you take this pic to an auto body supply house they can mix it..I think this colour brown with the rite flakes in it ..black top..& the right wheels would be unique & classy..If you notice there's a nice silver sheen to this colour..It would have to be sprayed on top of a silver base to get that effect....JMO

I WAS AT A SWAP MEET LAST WEEK AND SAW A 67 STANG THAT WAS PAINTED WITH DUPONT HOT HUES, IT WAS WHAT THEY CALL MOLTEN ORANGE OVER I THINK A GOLD BASE. THEY HAVE DIFFERENT BASE COLORS WHICH WILL CHANGE THE TOP COLOR, BUT IT LOOKED ALMOST LIKE A BROWN BUT NOT QUITE. THIS THING WOULD KNOCK YOUR EYES OUT AT 40 FEET. IT WAS SWEET. YOU'D HAVE TO GO TO A PAINT STORE THAT HAS DUPONT AND THEY SHOULD HAVE THE COLOR CHIPS. AND I BET PPG, OR HOUSE OF COLOR WOULD HAVE SOMETHING SIMILAR.

That also sounds great, That is what I am looking for, some thing that will turn heads!!
now I bet that kind of paint job would be very hard to do.. I was thinking of painting it my self. I am going to paint an old beater car I have to see if I can do it.

White with black interior sounds good to me! I actually considered changing my 73 Wimbledon White to the 2004 Oxford White that's on our Mach 1, but I came around and kept mine the stock Wimbledon White. Oxford white is about as white as you can get! Look at the difference in the photos below:

If you look at mine, you'll see what a Medium Brown Metallic convertible looks in Corvette Yellow! Wink
I really like that color on the Camaro by the way!
Mopar had a color called "Tawny Brown", that's pretty cool.

Doc..When your ready to paint the car let me know...I will take a ride out with my helper Joey blowfish & help you..I admire you wanting to give it a go...But if you want a head turner your going to need an experienced painter (ME) To make it happen..when you get ready to do the body work call me & I will tell you the materials to buy..the procedures..I will also scan the issue of DuPont refinsher news I was written up in, & send it to you..

DOC.. I APPLAUD YOU FOR WANTING TO GIVE IT A SHOT.. YES PAINTING HAS MANY SECRETS, BUT ALL ARE LEARNABLE WITH ALITTLE PRACTICE. THE NEW BASECOAT-CLEARCOAT PRODUCTS ARE VERY FORGIVING. THEY DONT RUN OFF ON THE FLOOR NEARLY AS EASY AS THE OLD SYNTHOL ENAMELS THAT WE USED IN THE PAST. BUT REMEMBER THIS. THREE SECRETS TO A GREAT LOOKING JOB.

1. PREP WORK.
2. PREP WORK.
3. PREP WORK. NO PAINTER CAN MAKE A POORLY PREPAIRED SURFACE LOOK LIKE A SHOW PIECE.
