Default Paint Color

If I get this Supra next week I have decided to go with Granada Black Pearl Metallic. It really pops compared to most black paints. Plus the pearl gives it that deep wet look. The metallic is a super fine and tiny Gold flake which along with the pearl helps to capture other light/colors.

Thoughts or comments anyone?

It sounds like a good color. Personally, I think black is rather overdone. For darker colors without, well, color I've alway like metallic gunmetal on MKIIIs.

I thinks that's a fine choice.


But everyone knows my favorite color

@ Green7mgte, thanks. I'm pretty set on it. But I also have been kicking around the idea of a pearl olive green with metallic silver. I have yet to see this color combination. Thanks for your thoughts.

Green is ok by me! Mines actually teal, but close enough for government work.

I had a teal metallic '93 MR-2 turbo back in, well, '93... LOVED that color. Looked sort of greenish aqua in bright sunlight and at night looked a nice royal blueish color with metallic electric blue highlights.

I want to paint my current Signal Yellow MR-2 Lotus Isotope Green (not to be confused with the earlier Krypton Green Isotope green is a bit less green I think both have a pearl overcoat).

If I got a second MR-2 or another Supra I'd probably like to go with a metallic gunmetal with a purple two tone flake in it. I think it's look wicked as a highlight color in the right lighting.

Gun metal wheels are sexy, now you have me thinking Pearl Gunmetal for paint perhaps. What about Blue steel? A color that looks nothing like Blue but just gives hints of it at certain angles.
