Black looks flashy...if you clean it on a regular basis. Plus a black Tbird is a Happy TBird.

Black with a blue or silver pearl. That's what I'd say. Something subtle, but still, enough to make people give it a second glance.

If you want something flashy, what about the color-shifting paint? there are several different color options available (i think, I haven't looked at the colors in awhile) I'll think up a few more tonight.

Try a bright yellow if you want a color that stands out. I love that color on the new stangs.

I was going to suggest that color- the Ford paint code is TA, and yes, that is a stock color for that Bird. I seem to like that color for some reason




That is my baby!

Sure, I'll bet they could make that happen, but for a price. I am going to have to paint my whole car after I fix all the accident damage, and I'm told it won't be cheap. I've heard around $2,000 for the whole car (that includes any prep I can't do, extra clear, etc...). It probably won't be too cheap tho...

I think you might need some reducer as well (someone with autobody experience could tell you). My dad wrote up all of the things I need to paint my car awhile back, I'll see if I can dig the list up

Nooo, not my car.

BASF extreme paint is about $400.00 - $500.00 a quart, plus $200.00 -$300.00 a gallon for the base.
To paint the door jams, engine compartment and trunk, plan on one gallon of base and three quarts of the extreme.


PPG Harlequin "Rainbow" paint

I can paint your car any kamelion color you want for 4000bux, bodywork extra. but you have to haul it here and leave it for a while. that mystichrome color is only 700 extra. jambs included. call your local body shop and ask how much they want. I dare ya.

but if you're still looking for color suggestions, GMC denali had a silver with a titanium dioxide flake in it, real frosty looking. nicest "stock"color out there, that and the ford code TA. cheaper custom look. both look like crazy pearls, but both are just two-stage paints. pearls in the base=cheaper4U

some others come to mind

Inca gold, prowler/ptcruiser, code PYJ
Imola orange, acura tl/nsx,forgot code, 3-stage
sunset orange, hummer 2
that audi S4 blue, thats cool.
chrysler PS4 is a bright, darker, platinum color.
go with ol skool GM bright red.....

94 V8 on 17" custom paint, R.I.P
97 Mark VIII LSC yeah
08 Ford Edge, white for now
