Looking for 2 colors for a sweet 2 tone paint job!

So a buddy of mine said he would give me a sweet deal on a paint job. $600 any color i wanted since he is trying to get his name out there and does pretty good work i told him yes. Ill post soem pics of the Scion TC he did a 3 color paint job on. Anyways i was thinking something like the mustang below.




Maybe like a Dark Candy Apple Red and Black? Post some good color combos and what not.

if you want it to look like that mustang, by a mustang and paint it those colors.
GA's look tacky in 2 tone unless its black and silver with an sct kit.

You don't wanna spend the money on a CF trunk, yet you are gonna drop $600 on a half assed paint job?

2 tone paint on a ga is hard to pull off imo. I don't think there is a decent body line on the car where the paint can go from one color to the next, just my opinion.

Look guy if your wanting to talk some **** pm me keep it off my thread

This guy does good work so it wont be half assed, asking for color opinions not "Oh two tone doesnt look good" I want two colors that look good together didnt ask for negative remarks.

If i dont go two tone i was thinking a really bright color like a viper blue or something metallic

by the way im going with the rk sport kit with wing and hood to get a general idea of what i want/what the colors will look good with that kit

your best bet is to check out show threads. get some ideas from there

Also work with how the GA is made
its not a luxury car, so stay away from most browns and white pearls because you wont be able to pull it off.
Black and red look really mean if done right
grey orange and silver look sik. excuse the pun
bright colors paired with white generally belong on a lowrider. (greens oranges yellows light blues etc)

PS
disregard the actual cars. just givin u color choices.

Wow dude, you seriously need to chill. This is the second time I've seen you pop off at people for giving opinions. You're on this site with people that know what they are talking about when it comes to our cars, and you're not always going to get the answers you prefer. You ask for advice on colors, people are going to give advice as to if it will work. You should really eb thankful they do they sort of thing.

btw, though, what 2002GT said was teh ghey anyways :v

Two tone seriously doesn't look good for the most part, though it can be pulled off on our cars. Sik's was pretty nice, but Puck's was always my fave as well. I personally think accent coloring like that is the way to go. I would say to go with the more vibrant color, maybe even that blue with accents. That is a pretty kick arse color. Hmmm I'm guessing a nice silver or grey would go with the blue, right? Color matching is not my thing sometimes

There used to be a pic of a GA with 18" AT Inox's and a red/black two tone floating around here, but it was a couple years ago. It looked very nice though.

If you really want to be the envy of everyone why not gloss black below and flat gunmetal up top? Have a pinstripe in gold separating the two.
