Need opinions on paint...

As many of you know I was in a wreck a few weeks ago and I have new parts going on soon. I'm having the whole car repainted and I'm debating on slightly changing the color, since it won't likely cost any more than respraying White Opalescent. Here's the two I've narrowed it down to:

Opal Opalescent:



Ivory Pearlescent:



As you can see, there's subtle differences in those two. Here's my current color to compare them to:


2007 Ford Mustang GT Premium - SOLD March 2014.
2013 Ford Taurus SHO (TUXESHO) Tuxedo Black Bone stock for now.

The Opal is beautiful! For an added visual, you might want to talk to your bodyman, and ask if he can add scant Blue Micah. I think it would look really hot under the lights.

89 Mustang LX - fat slug, but it runs awesome
