    Blue GM paint question... How diffrent are they??

    Ok guys... need some help picking out a blue to repaint my car. Quasar Blue, Electron Blue, and Impulse Blue... how diffrent are they and in your personal opinion which one looks best? Its down to these 3 for the repaint... I have Quasar now and i like it but i want a little more pop... I may still go compleatly off the wall and paint her Kawasaki Candy Plasma Blue if I can get the paint at a decent price but that involves doing some jam work and i really dont want to go that route.... let me know what ya think guys.

    I will be doing the work myself, and i have plenty of experience with painting... just need to know what paint you think would look best and why... personally i like them all so i cant decide

    I'm quite the fan of the blue on the new GTO's. I'd change to that color but I don't like the idea of having a different color engine bay. And I can't afford the down time to drop the engine and pull the interior.

    upon careful consideration with the guy i buy my paint from were going to stick with the stock color but were going to spruce it up with a little pearl in the clear so it has a lil more pop under light. This way i wont have to jam the car or worry about the engine bay (all of thats in pretty good shape anyways) so the week after GM nationals at carlisle were gonna scuff it, do fix the dents and creases, fill the licence plate bracket holes, fix the spider cracks, then prime it, seal it, and spray it... should be done by the end of june! Im thrilled... we may even for-go nats this year and jump right into it. Ill post pics of the progress. Decided to go with a ram air hood too. 3 quick questions though... Should i leave my silver door emblems (trans am) silver, or should i paint them body color? What color should i do the CETA? its flat black now and i like it but im wondering if something else wouldnt do more justice... and lastly... Dose anyone know where i can get the silver ram air decals for the hood?

    IMO always disliked the TransAm on the doors in the body color

    Bunch of the RamAir decals on Ebay, probably a sponsor here who has them too(afterthoughts has them in silver

    It's not one of your choices, but, I am a big fan of Lemans Blue!

    But anyway, the color of your car now is awesome!
