Hey guys. My car currently has terrible paint, chipping hard top, the works. I don't mind it that much, but i'm going to paint it sometime soon since i have access to a garage/air compressor/spray gun and the time to do it.
Now I actually love the color of my car, but the more I think about it the more I'm tempted to slightly change the color. I dont want to go with a huge change or anything, and I still may even stay Mariner blue, but what do you guys think of this.
I'm going to paint the engine bay when i pull the motor, its going to be gunmetal grey, or some kind of grey color. I'm doing this because i want to be able to drop the motor back in the car right away, then drive it while I do the body work and finalize a color. Also when i spray it a new color i'm going to do the door jams. I'll probably end up doing the trunk, roll bar, and wheels in a gunmetal grey as well to go with a theme.
Now the colors I'm tossing around. Give me your opinions please. My car is a standard NA mariner blue, r package rear trunk spoiler, GV front lip, and eventually some 15x9 6ul's, and a hardtop. Just to give you an idea of the "look" i'm going for.
Laguna Seca Blue, heres a miata done in that color.
And I'm also considering a semi flat, or satin blue.
The more I look at colors, the more they all look the same. I really like the Porsche blue and the Bmw blue so far, but the grabber blue(ford) is sexy as well. And flat blue could end up being simply badass. Maybe I'll choose one of the glossy colors and add a flattening agent to it when i paint it.
Also feel free to add any suggestions, with pics of course!
