    So I'm getting my 53 chevy ready for summer and have decided to get my stock steel rims powder coated and I need some ideas for what color to go with. The car is the original horizon blue with some nice patina showing through. I'm leaning towards a cream color but idk if it goes with the patina. Thoughts? 2016-03-16 18.05.07.jpg

    Yo, I see your from Oregon!! Me too.

    Is your car a solid blue, or is the top a different color?

    Some of the guys I know, will put bright flaked rims on a car with patina. Its a good contrast of flashy with aged.

    My brother 53 Chev has patina and lumps in the body. It is factory dark green. He flaked the roof Gold and his his wheels gold. MAN it looks good.

  6. What color is the roof? Is it a Bel Air with the painted inserts on the quarter panels?

  8. Black with spider caps and trim rings always looks good as the car evolves.

    I have a blue patina F-1 with cream/tan wheels and it looks pretty good. It grows on you.

    I was going to say cream or eggshell white. The old Daytona Blue off the 63 Corvette is a very dark blue, it may work also. Just my 2 cents.

    Like the others said, white or possibly the Daytona blue. That is a very nice dark blue and may match well.

    I thought cream by just looking at the color of your car even before I read any farther, subtle and classy too.
