Yup factory paint. When my front ground effect broke and when I got new one painted they used the color code that was on my car.

The blackouts looked great with this color. Wish I still had them. Have you decided on the paint code your going to go with? There are many shades of gray. The paint you see on my car is Macco paint...ugly. I don't know if they tried to match the color my car was originally(gunmetal metallic), but they did a horrible job, not even close to original. I will be painting it a darker gray though.

Frozer, did you get your car painted? I should be getting mine back either at the end of this week or beginning of next. I went with Dark Shadow Gray. Will post up new pictures after the F-Body Gathering in Atlanta.

Here's mine, I'm thinking about getting a Cyber grey job myself but i've been leaning heavily on a "satin" gunmetal grey. I like the whole "stealth bomber" look.

Re: Gunmetal/ dark gray paintjobs?

Nice rides and nice paint jobs guys. My only problem with my paint: Midnight Sand Gray Metallic, with silver gfx and striping; other than the fact that I need a whole new paint job, is people think the car is black! I often have to correct people saying it is a dark charcoal gray.

I never did post up some pictures of the car after the gathering so here they are...

Re: Gunmetal/ dark gray paintjobs?

Seeing someone brought this thread back up. Here's a picture of mine with rough paint when I first got it, I'm hoping to get it repainted same/similar color once I get it back from mechanic.
