I am thinking of going with dark claret a factory color on early 80's cars does anyone have that color on thier car so i can see a good picture of it? I want a very dark red like pretty much black with a red tint. any suggestions?

Thanks for the info guys i have a month to pick a color out or at least that is what my painter said. i ordered a bunch of color chips and some small sample sized rattle cans so i can see the paint on test panels. Thanks for all the advice

Come on you know you love the color! And when it gets redone it will look like the inside of an igloo or a deep snowbank. You know like the ones you'all had last winter.............Shocked yikes! not again!

Hope we NEVER have a winter like that EVER again! I know you lent us your winter last year, but you can have it back! Met with the painter for the second time yesterday and she goes under the knife Dec. 11! Guess what color it'll be?  Evil Smile
