    What color accents? Having trouble deciding

    Hey guys! I have a 2002 silver WS6. I'm wanting to put some accent overlays on the "Trans Am" on the side doors. Only problem is i'm having a hard time deciding in what color I should get. My color choices were:

    Black
    Charcoal Metallic
    Dark Charcoal Metallic (A little darker than regular charcoal)

    I already ordered some black ones a couple days ago, but now i'm second guessing if I want black now. Out of those colors, what do you think would look best? Thanks for the help!

    Since those are my choices I would go with dark charcoal metallic, but I would seriously recommend going with blue. Specifically navy blue metallic over silver. I had that color scheme on a silver bird and it looked awesome. Think of the silver Skyline from 2 Fast 2 Furious but 10X better.

    Black, Blue

    Black but the blue would look good. But to color coordinate the calipers or suspension would be hard with blue.

    Thanks! Anymore opinions are welcome please! I think I have it narrowed down to black or dark charcoal metallic. I've never really seen dark charcoal metallic on silver, so I'm interested to see how it looks. Any other opinions? Thanks!

    Silver
    2002 Firebird T/A - WS6

    As you can see I have a silver also. I just ordered a dark gray package to match the standard Ram Air decal on the hood. I figured I'd make it look as close to stock as possible.. I ordered a package of graphics from Sidewinder Graphics and it should be here this week. They special make it for you, and it covers the doors, front bird, rear letters, and Pontiac on the left headlight. A reasonable price too- actually the best valuse of all the guys that advertize here.
    I'm thinking of adding some dark gray pinstriping accents too- maybe on the hood and sides.

    black accents silver well.... not to mention you can change the WS6 badge to black also. I have a friend with a silver WS6 with blue accent, and it looks really sharp. I would stick with black or go to blue. Also have you thought about changing or painting the rear center piece under the bumper. My car came stock with it black, all others color match the car, my friends admired it, so 3 of them so far have changed theirs to black and now a lot of ppl around here are complimenting it and thinking of doing the same thing.

    It's not that hard.

    I have a silver TA WS6 vert. I chromed every bird, word and emblem on the car, I've gotten tons of compliments, the car hasn't had this much attention since it was new. I'm a chrome freak though, you should see my Titan.
