    I wanted to get some opinions on my color choices for my Merc. The paint job will be a modified version of the hotwheels car pictured below. I am either going to go with the same colors that are on the car (blue, black , and silver) or I will go with copper, burgundy and black. The copper would replace the silver and the burgundy would replace the blue. The black will remain the same. Also on the car the Black will be a satin black..that way the other colors really pop. I have also included some color samples I am thinking about going with. Let me know what you guys think.

    Definitely copper burgundy and black! I was on the same color scheme but original two tone burgundy and gun metal. Im swaying between that and one solid satin finish. I hate choosing paint colors!

  8. I don't like blue.
     
  9. I really really like that burgundy. How about burgundy and silver and black.

    i think the scallops should be the lightest color.. its hard thinking of a three tone paintjob!

    This is as close as I could get to the colors, hopefully it'll give you an idea of what it will look like. I really like the color scheme.
