What Colors Do You Think Would Match My Balt Best?

I want to paint the trim and plastic under the hood, but i cant think of any other color then black, which is boring.
My cobalt is painted the Silver Moss Metallic color btw.

i just put 3 clear coats on mine and it looks nice, makes it pop. i wouldnt go with anything to nuts because it will probably end up looking tacky because your cars color is quite unique

dman090 this is my car color



and Myers- you just put clear coats over it?
like the trim?
or the body?
either way, that doesn't say much about me switching the colors away from black...

I'd go white, with silver wheels and a drop, as for the engine bay, leave it black, and do the valve cover black as well...

well if you look at my garage, i have black rims on it
but white interior? because that's the only other color i could think of too.
i was thinking orange or yellow for the engine?

Thats a picky color IMO...anything from white to black looks good, but not much else does

love it or hate it, but this is what I did:


It's not a color suggestion, but just showing that you can have fun if you want to. but I think most here think it's tacky.
