    My wife says PURPLE!!! No stripes. But with the dark silver to charcoal trim.

    If I was to keep it, I would go with the purple also. You have it, save the $$$

    I don't like all black suspension parts, unless I'm trying to blend it in, to hide it.

    Yeah, just having a gallon of the purple stuff already gives a lot of points in it's favor vs. buying more paint!!!! Stuff is really getting expensive!!!!

    Hey Dave ,
    Is the purple a dark shade or a light shade , inbetween shade?

    Is it more to the red side or blue side of purple ?

    Charcoal goes with just about any color if its a real dark purple , then a bright to a mid silver will look good , 2 darks IMO doesnt look right .


    But with painting it purple will limit the people to buy it . The tried and true colors , Red , Black , Silver , White , and Blue appeals to many , orange , yellow , green , gold , Brown appeal to another select few , People that like Purple walk to a different beat all together ........ LOL , Like me , My every day driver is a Purple Pearl 1999 Toyota Tacoma Pre Runner I purchased new , one look at it on the show room floor I had to have it

    So I will trade you 2 Iwata LPH-400 LV & LVB paint guns for the camaro when its done Heck I'll even throw in my Iwata W-400 Lv2 gun to sweeten the pot ........LOL

    Well, in the can it's kind of a medium to light Purple, appears to have a lot of metallic and a decent amount of pearl in it.... Next time I'm out there I'll remember to get the color number and name off the can..... It's DuPont Chromabase, so I would imagine the color would be easy enough to adjust a bit, then of course the color of the base would probably change it, too.......

    Heck, I've got so many mods on the body now that I've pretty much limited my market as much as it could be limited!!!! It's a cinch none of the Camaro purists would ever consider buying it!!!!!

    Friend of mine was over for a bit today (til his wife caught up with him), sez he's going to stop by tomorrow... He's a younger fella, but has a good eye for design. Try to put some sort of plan together for a grille and headlight surrounds......

    I think tinting it with the right toners will be alright , just be careful of not turning it muddy that is if your not happy with the shade it is now .
    A Dark to Mid Charcoal will go good with a light to mid purple shade .

    With no remark on my paint gun offer , you must be thinking it over

    Yeah, I looked at some very nice mid range charcoals, found a Chrysler one with about the same about of metallic in it....

    Should just get the jambs or something ready and spray a shot of the purple to see what it looks like, probably beats the heck out of a lot of guessing, huh?????

    I bet I know just which chrysler charcoal you are thinking , its a coarse high metallic , I use it under my Kandies alot , with all that flake it sure makes Kandys POP

    I usually do a spray out on a 12"x12" panel with my color then mask off for a few color selections for stripes , then clear it and polish it , take it out side and see which ones I like .

    Having a mix bank at work helps too I get to play mad paint scientist

    In simpler terms, there are a couple reasons that go hand-in-hand with the red-white combo.

    Psychologically, red is an "excitement color". Being one of the basic colors, it is also "classic" in feeling. If you were buying a Camaro, aren't those the feelings you want from the car?

    Purple is an "exotic color", and also can seem "feminine". That is probably NOT what they are looking for.

    You will find at least three times more buyers for the red car.

    The goldish shades suggest "value". That is not a bad image for resale.....but I would bet on the red color, and Z28 stripes.

    A final thought....If it's a keeper, do what will make you happy. If it is mechandise....paint it red.

    How about that light grey interior though??? Seeing as how it is going to be for resale (well, maybe a weekend or two to play with the kids first). I really don't want to spend a bunch of money and time getting upholstery redone.....??????

    Red and grey will work great together!!! (purple nova had medium grey interior), but I have seen SEVERAL rods and musclecars go with grey interiors and have red, black, blue, even yellow, outside... I've got a 98 Chevy pick up with grey interior, dark green outside. When I get to paint it, it will be candy green metallic and silver tu-tone, with grey interior.
    Grey is a universal color, not as usable as black, but close. As I said before and Hotrod said, if its a keeper, put the purple on it (cuz it probably WOULD become a keeper with purple on it ) if you want to sell it, paint it what the general populas would accept, RED...or black, blue or even white. "Off" colors are a hard sell...
    If its not worth doing right, its not worth doing... Donny, MaxxMuscle Custom Painting

    That's why I use this forum... I've got a lousy eye for color combos, good to hear from the pro guys that grey is ok with resale red... Probably just save the purple for my next keeper... Thanks for the help. This old 'maro is all about resale, got to get some serious $$$$$ together so I can get some goodies ordered for the Ranchero this summer!!!!!

    Dave on the nose I'm kinda seeing a 68-69?? RS type of grill and headlights. You'll have to excuse my ignorance on Camaro's I don't know one year from the rest sorry. But that's the feel I get looking at your pic's. Tought call on color. Maybe if you can photoshop some different colors and see what you like. I do like the purple but like others have said it might limit your prospects. But being a one off custom I can see the purple working. If you choose stripes maybe something like a ghost stripe type of thing. Maybe none at all. As a Ford guy I like those loud blazin dual stripes. But they are not for everyone. Pretty impressive work on that car tho!!! I quietly follow along watching your progress. Nice job!!.
