shades of blues?

hey guys just wondering what shades of blues would look good on a cougar? right now i have deep jewel green but it needs to go fast since it has quite a bit bodywork. i want a nice shade of blue not too dark, also not strictly ford i was liking GM's Dark cloissone blue something different. you know something that when the light shines gives the illusion of transparency and in the shadow is a little dark. will post a photoshop later and let me know what you think. thanks

edit: mods move to exterior if you wish.

I've always been a fan of Ford's Twilight Blue Metallic.



It kind of changes between a medium/dark metallic blue to almost black, depending on how the light hits it.

I like that color on Thunderbirds (that's the color of my 94 LX), but I've never thought that it looked right on a Cougar. Just my opinion.

The original pic is of my car. BTW, the chop looks pretty good. *right click save as* Gave me some ideas for stripes.



There is a really cool looking Fox Cougar that goes to Cat Jam every year. Its painted with a Corvette Blue that really pops in the sun. His name is Cougarcrusin over on www.cougarnuts.com
