Default What color should I paint my car

So it's time to ditch the faded and chipping purple. I will be rattle caning it for now until I get other mods done first I just hate the condition of the paint now. So I am thinking either Matt yellow Matt black or Matt grey and my convertible top is black if that helps

Just when you think you've seen everything....

You're actually asking for help deciding on a rattle can color????

You're concerned about rattle can colors clashing with your convertible top???

Who the hell is Matt???

Sit down and read the following slowly and out loud so you understand:

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT COLOR YOU RATTLE CAN YOUR MUSTANG. THE ONLY THING PEOPLE WILL NOTICE IS YOU PAINTED YOUR CAR WITH A RATTLE CAN.

Regardless of what the paint can label says, you're choices of color are:

Primer Gray - Also known as I Ain't Got No Money Gray and I Ain't Got No Comprehensive Gray and Trailer Trash Titanium

Broke Blue - Also known as Barrio Blue and Crips Blue

John Deere Green - Also known as Left Over Lawn Tractor Green

Rust Red - Also known as If I Match the Rust, I Don't Have to Fix the Rust Red and Bloods Red

Hobo Yellow - Also known as It Fell Off the Highway Department Truck Yellow and 20 Minute Parking Zone Yellow

Don't misunderstand, I wasn't trying to stop you. Just post pictures because I need a good laugh.

In addition to the rattle can nonsense, I have never understood why anyone has to ask the group for suggestions on colors or modifications.
If you don't know what color you want, you shouldn't be painting your car with a $.99 can or paying $15,000 to have it done.

I spray painted a slammed S-10 and it turned out Ok. although it was just an S-10 and nothing I'd ever drive. The guy was on deployment and asked me to do it while he was gone.

OP, don't spray paint your car. Sell it and buy an F-body.

I say if he really hates the way his car looks now and he wants to rattle can it, go for it! But since it's going to be obvious that it was a homemade paint job, get creative. Select a design or theme and make an art project out of it like the Sharpie cars. Tape out some designs and use all metallic colors or just go with crayola basic colors like the old Partridge family tour bus. You could even let a high school or community college art or graphic design or auto repair class go crazy on it.
The OP did post his request for opinions in the general section and if nothing else, it provided entertainment and an opportunity for members to practice photoshop and snark.

I know what you mean. Pete Santini and Charlie Hutton use rollers.

And that would work to if you were willing to put in the prep and the color sanding. The parts are small enough.

On a car though the OP is either ignorant or delusional.

No need to be rude or mean to the guy. If he want to rattle can it then I say go for it. It's his car. It will make it harder to get ready for a regular paint job though.

I would go matte red. It will look a little Better then the other colors i think. Could even go with matte black stripes and give it a old school hot rod look. At least with some good coats of matte it could work until you get the money to paint it. Don't let people get you down. It's your car and you are just trying to get some insight. Good luck brother and post some pictures when you get it done.

Yep i drove my flat black for a year untill it was ready for paint, was a better option for a season than 6 different colors, it didnt get weathered case the car is garage kept and maybe say 1k miles between occaisonal cruise and 11 second strip passes.
