You forgot Hawaiian orchid/purple haze (which is mine, and I love it). Your cars clean though!

Re: What Color to Paint!

Hello fellow third gen owners. I don't know why but I bought this car for a whopping $250. Then I started tinkering with it, and now it's turned into a heck of a restoration project. Don't know of to many people that would restore a third gen Camaro. So now after T-top rust repair, 20 something years of door dings, and custom carbon fiber hood and spoiler mock up, I am ready for some paint. The factory color is summit white and I like the contrast between dark and light. I was watching a show and I saw a flat white car and was wondering if anyone has worked with flat paint?

Mine Plastic paint (it's temporary, right?) DupliColor brand. Yankee blue and black. It's shiny because of the rain. I'm starting to sand and primer now. 87 Formula.
Going back to original color (Sonic Blue?) next year.
