you can have any color mixed you like. Just go to a paint store and they will be able to keep making it darker until it's what you want. BTW dark blue with blue pearl over it looks amazing. It really jumps out when light hits it. You'd spray the base blue first and then the pearl goes over it in a clear base coat then you clear.
The only problem with dark colors is you lose detail in the body lines b/c everything is dark. On colors like silver the lines are acceted by natural shadows. The orange that I chose was chosen for it's detail sharpness on the car and that it matches well with carbon fiber which I use all over the car.
my personal favorite blue is off of the cadillac Escalade EXT its called "out of the" blue paint code is 91U i figured id share ti with anyone who wants it since i am no longer painting it due to the same affect craig was jsut stating i fugured since everything is shaved i wanna show off all the lines
HoK has the claims of having the darkest blues, and brightest reds on the market. The darkest blue can be had by applying a black base coat, with 3 coats of 1/2 Strato Blue and 1/2 Kandy Koncentrate. For an added effect mix your clear with some blue ice pearl (much smaller than standard pearl, which on a dark color looks more like flake).
richierich1023: about how much was your paint job? is that all I ask for when i go to the bodyshop is black w/blue pearl?
im hoping my quote for a paint job woud be cheaper since i dont have a body kit and i will be putting a carbon fiber hood. im trying to go the subtle route with my cougar.
