    T/A is fixing to go into body shop

    Ok so some of you saw where my t-top got shattered and with some of the stuff that put chips on the front of the car, which the front bumper, fenders, and hood need repainted. so was going thinking of getting the wsq hood, but not in the budget and that is ok, but we were doing a two tone job. painter and I talked about the strip, but I as thinking of taking it back to the spoiler.

    that red is kind of what I was wanting, maybe not the point on the front, but it will come to the front bumper, but on the center section and top of the spoiler.

    Not too bad -- I prefer a solid color on our cars, but that does work.

    yea everyone is different with what they like and that is the plus side to being car people and being able to do different things
    That is why I've seen some cars I would never have added anything too but do not go to much on the owner, because that is there thing

    This yellow beast (which btw I am in love with this color, reminds me of my SY mach)
    pretty much keeping the same idea this guy had, but no pin strip on the top of the spoiler and on the front bumper prob will not do the point, but round it off with the way the front bumper is on the front.

    I'm debating on a gloss black or satin black idk yet, kind of want gloss, because my rims have gloss black on the inside, so it will all match up

    I almost or somewhat do wish I would have gotten a black one, I love batman, got it tattoo on me, kids love it. I would have done that yellow and just switched the way the colors are black where the yellow is and yellow where the black is. but it is all good. 98-02 TA's remind me of the 1989 batmobile.
    I'm thinking gloss back is the way i'm going

    Mine is NBM and been kicking around ideas on paint for a while. I would love to do base of Gunmetal Grey with Black Accents. But a $5-6000 paint job is a long ways off for me.

    This just happen because of what a 18wheeler did and so just have to pay my deductible and rest is cover and while it is there, just having this little extra won't be to bad. would have love to done the wsq hood, but after paying my deductible, really the only part I would be making out is the cost of painting it, so just was not in the budget, but I think this is going to be even better and with all new paint on the front I'm pretty happy

    I'd suggest gloss black rather than satin. Satin is such a pain in the rump to take care of.

    I like 2 tone paints, very popular in the 50's but looks good on any car if you have a body line to break it up.

    Very popular to go with 2 tone on cars that have received some sort of damage such as yours. Biggest reason is because color matching the car with the original paint is in most cases a "not so perfect" match. Alot of time spent on blending and blowing paint onto other panels, and base/clear is more involved with that process. So a 2 tone becomes a better choice in most all instances if you can pull it off with proper body lines.

    You see that alot with cars that have hail damage, or in your case, alot of rock and road debri damage. Much easier to paint the top of the car in a 2 tone, fixes the hail damage, and makes the car unique at the same time, I like to break it up with a pinstripe in between that goes with another color scheme on the car (red pin stripe and red brake calipers for instance).

    Black and silver are popular, or blue and silver, what ever your taste. Lots of options.

    Black on top works good on these cars because the 4th gens already have a black C-pillar in most cases, and T-tips and window trim are also black. So it's a natural choice to follow that on the hood and decklid.

    I agree, looks good against yellow and helps tone down the bright yellow in this case. I see he broke it with a silver pinstripe as well. On solid yellow cars I'm more of a fan of the softer hues like Butternut that was a popular GM color in the mid and late 60's.

    There was a member here who was rebuilding a wrecked CETA and going with that very black on yellow scheme. Hasn't posted in a while and I cannot remember his username at the moment. Don't know if he was successful. I wanted to see the end result.

    It is all good, everyone has their own liking and so I understand if people like it or love it. A good friend of mine doesn't like blacked out rides, but he also says, he doesn't pay for it, so its all good.

    UPDATE: so Monday when I was suppose to take the T/A to the body shop a bad Ice Storm hit where I live in Texas and I wasn't about to drive it there, also the body shop was not open because of the ice on the roads. I think asked if they would be open today and they are not, still some ice, but clearing up. So tomorrow should be the day will be dropping it off.
    Next is my painting idea's that I keep having. I'm the type that does not like to pay twice for something (meaning on this have it painted one way and then change my mind and have it done a different way) and so I was throwing other ideas out there.
    The factory color was silver on this T/A and some of the emblems on the doors and rear are still that silver color. Also who ever had it painted, did not have the engine bay painted and it is silver still. So my thought was is still do the strip and instead of a point like shown in the pictures do it rounded on the front bumper where it follows the line and have it painted the factory silver color. nothing else would be painted on the mid section or the spoiler.
    Down the road I'm planning on switching rims to either silver or chrome rims, so it will go with the blue and silver.
    So we will see this is the plan as of right now that I'm thinking about and being that the engine bay is still silver and I just think it would go better with the car and be a change.
    Let me know what yall think.

    I like the concept of the Yellow one that you posted with one exception. The point on the nose, something just bugs me about it.
