    Which color???

    Hey guys I'm fighting myself on which color to paint my Camaro. Its either the stock color which is Navy Blue Metallic or like a Hugger Orange type. I'll be doing the labor so pulling any thing to make this car seem it came like that from factory is no problem.... Which way would you guys go????? Thanks!!!

    If you are willing to ditch the black zr-1's for chrome I say go for hugger orange if you have the time and money. Lets face it our z-28's aren't exactly collector cars w/ value relying on oem authenticity.

    yeah I have a set of chrome zr1's and a set of c5 z06's gray in color. I want something different but clean so an orange color can give some of the features of the car.

    They may look nice but theyre a bitch to look nice. I say go hugger orange and be different. plus you can pull off the whistler, berger mods much better than on blue. I'd say keep it stock but it's obvious you're looking for new direction.

    Yeah I think I'm going with orange. You can add little details to car and you can notice more features of the car rather than the blue.....

    I wasn't aware there is a two mode process for camaros

    My car has 4 modes.

    Cleaner than clean
    Dusty from sitting in the garage
    Real Dusty from driving it around the block
    Muddy from taking it to the car wash down the street and returning without drying it there.

    If I were to ever repaint my car, I would have it done in the same factory color or do a candy type color. One extreme or the other for me. I just don't see the point in having the car painted a different factory option color.

    Yeah, I can see that. You could do a custom color like a T/A I saw on here that is similar to this factory shade only more "candy" if that makes since.

    Yes, I know which one you are referring too and it looks great. I just think if you are going to change the color, and have the entire car painted to match(engine bay, door jams, everything) go all out and do a really nice custom color, not just another color you could have had from the factory. Thats just me though.

    what if I just primer it and leave it like that Thats what I was thinking painting it like some sort of candy style paint. In my area there is nothing but suv's and trucks that have nothing but candy paint jobs... I think those colors don't fit the persona of these cars....
