    Which color to paint the Mustang?

    This winter I'm planning on handing my car over to a buddy at school (he's in the auto body program) to get some fresh paint. Lauren and I have been doing some looking around, trying to see what goes well with the wheels, and I've finally settled on a few options. I'd just like to see what you guys think. Keep in mind plans to tint the hell outta this thing are in the works as well.

    Here is a couple pics of my car (don't mind the mess) :




    Here's the options:

    Option #1
    Sunset Orange Metallic



    Option #2
    Black



    Option #3
    Sonic Blue



    Option #4

    I voted sonic blue, though the color Drew posted looks very nice also.

    I wouldn't go black, If I ever had the opportunity to repaint a whole car I doubt I would go with something simple like black. Might as well make it unique, instead of like every other black fox.

    Man, talk about varied responses.. Lol

    I forgot to add another idea I had, satin black. Saw a truck with it, looked way cool, and is still floating in the back of my head.

    I sort of originally thought I'd like a darker deep blue, like sonic blue, and still think it's one of my top preferred colors. I might go with a metallic version though.

    The orange is something Lauren first came upon, and I like it for the simple fact that there aren't many out there, especially foxes. I have yet to see it with similar wheels, I'd like to see what it looks like with anthracite wheels.

    The reason I'm considering black is the car will rarely be driven (weekend car), and I won't have to worry much about keeping it clean. I also loved having it on the Fiero, and think it'd go good with the wheels. Satin black would be way cool, IMO, since it would have that "badass" look, especially with that hood, 5% tint, and the stance it has. However, I've always liked having something with clearcoat, so that I can wash it, and polish/wax it every once in a while, something I haven't been able to do with this car yet.

    Good thing I have a couple months to think about it still.. Lol

    Oh, and I'm not feeling stripes with this thing, I don't think they'd flow well with the hood..

    Silver.. Use the Silver from the 00-02 Fbodys. Not the pewter color. the actual silver metallic color.

    That color is nice, will not show dirt or scratches as bad and is really nice and bright.. should go well with your wheels.

    If that isnt an option I would go with black..

    ever think about a dark gray? or maybe close to the color of your wheels?
    I know it's not much different than what you have now... but what you have now looks good, this you would just be able to wash/wax.

    Hmm, haven't really considered silver yet.. I'll ponder it for a while.

    I'm not feeling the grey, I'm hoping for something that'll stand out. However, being I live in hick-city Iowa, I can practically drive with open headers (and have on occasion), so I'm it'll attract attention either way.

    Another thing to consider is my photography hobby. I'd like nothing more than to have one of those cars that are just plain fun to take pictures of. I want it to be clean, stand out, and still look like it'll rip the head off of whoever is next to it.
