I'm looking for a nice blue to repaint my car. I'd like to keep it a darker blue color.. Ive got a few ideas but looking for a couple more.

My first plan was sonic blue but, I don't care for the purple color it looks like under some lights.

Next idea is the GM blue, There is a equinox at work that is this color and I like the way it looks. I think the name of the color is Cobalt blue? But again is has a purple shade to it.

I thought about the Lexus Ultra sonic blue also..

This picture the lighting shows alot of the color changes in the paint.

I found this awhile back, no idea what color it is but this is what I'd like to have.

Any other ideas on what colors would look good on the car? For those of you that don't know what I have its a 88 Mustang GT with 93 cobra bumpers and spoiler.

Leguna Seca is lighter then what I would like to paint it. What I'm looking for is more of a medium/dark blue.

Hyper Blue

Honda's Electron Blue Pearl from the '99-'00 Civic Si is my favorite blue. :yesnod:

I really like both those corvette colors, and the Lighting blue Saab color.. I like the look of the new F150 blue but really want something darker.. This post is going ot make it harder to deside on a color.. lol

I saw this on yellowbullet.. Its 03 Dodge Viper blue, not sure of the name of the paint but looks really good. Its nice to see what it already looks like on the car.

Few dozen dozen different blues here- many are solid colors, which arent seen very often on modern cars- everything's been metallic from the factory since the 80's -but there are some nice examples of classic blues, pearls, candies, and stuff- post #64 is really nice.... of the lighter colors, Lexas Tungstern mist 8r8 on post #71 would be nice on the right car.

I know it's not "blue" but my favorite purples are toward the blue, black, eggplant side, as opposed to purples with magenta, fuscia, reds in them (hate that)

BUT post #5 on this thread show two GREAT paint jobs- and there are VERY many other great ones on here...

I couldn't afford such rare paint, I heard it has pieces of gold and diamonds in it.

I'm going to call around Monday and see what kinda prices I can get on some differnt colors. 3 years ago Carrol brothers on n oak wanted $460 for a gallon of ppg sonic blue.
