Paint Suggestions

i think maybe im retarded or blind, because i dont see anywhere on how to make a poll

but, im headin back to school in 2 weeks, and im takin auto body, and the BALT is on the to-do list.

so i need paint suggestions. if im gonna paint it, i want it to be worth it.

i was thinkin dark gunmetal metallic or just a different shade of blue.

what color you guys think i should go towards?

this would be the gunmetal color i do.

hi blue
have you ever painted a car before?
I would advise against changing the color unless your car is currently black cause then you can just leave the engine bay black.

Changing the color of a car at least triples the amount of work involved.
