Which color for repaint?

I will be sending my car to the paint booth in the next week or two..and i cant decide on a color?

I have absolute red right now..

I was thinking about

Absolute red with organge pearl mixed in
Candy Apple Red
Candy Brandywine

Or go completly diffrent and go with a nice bright candy orange?

Also what does everyone prefer candy or pearl? If i go candy I will probably still add pearl and custom mix it for a one of a kind color?


What does everyone think? Pictures would be nice if you have any of custom paint (this dosent have to be on a celica)

thanks

pearl > candy, imo.

candy apple red does stand out though, but i'm more for neutral colors such as white with pearl, red pearl, or blue pearl.

i'm also a big fun of gunmetal paint thumbsup

I've done a lot of research on paint and I came up with the fact that you get more out of your money with a pearl paint rather then a candy paint. It would cost about 5000 dollars to get (This is what i want) A flourescent orange with a white pearl; and about 8000 dollars for a candy paint. And all this of course is for fullprep work and 3 stage paint. (for the pearl) Some people would never pay that much for paint, but I think that It'll be off the hook when it's done!

Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.
