You're lucky, grey matches or blends with almost any color.(my interior is dark red) My suggestion would be like an orange or burnt orange metallic. I saw one with a cowl hood,looked sharp!

I was also thinking of like the Burnt copper metalic type color that dodge has on theire new vehicles. I think itd look sharp on an SS..realy sharp.. and the grey would match. And yes i am partial to my own tastes. But black, white, and siler are too overdone on these cars for me \:\)

At the shop we painted a 1985 Monte Carlo LS to SS Conversion... The color is called Tangerine Orange Pearlcoat... I suggest getting it in PPGs DBC or DBU line as their MBC BC/CC and MTK Single Stage Urethane is close, but DBC/DBU has more Metallic/Pearl in it

I'm going with the sealed primer flat black look. However since a kid in the eeearly seventies, I've always dug the metalflake electric candied blue. That was absolutely sht hot back then. Everyone's car looked like today's bass boats.

On my Regal, I painted the car Laser Blue Metallic, but I painted the Hood Flat Black for that Old School Muscle Car look... I know the Metal Flake Blue your talking about... I actually have some of the Metal Flake that was used for that color... I might do the Monte Flat Black or Metal Flake, I am still deciding

I've always liked candy-apple red. I bet it would look cool on a Monte.

Not to be crude or anything of that nature but i really dont think this cat would be interested in MCSS.com, the door still sags to the point of having to slam it with the back of your leg,it has 4mismatched tires now(have no clue as to what happened with that) and bubble rust all about the trunk. It kills me everytime i see it but the dealer i traded it to said the guy wanted rims but could barely afford the payments to the dealer:/ but if you insist i will speak to him
