The passenger side is a bit too gold.

Nice work with the painting though.
Yeah, I'm really digging the base color. The passenger mirror is waaay too gold for me.

I'm really not that great at it. I had to wipe up several spots where the paint pooled up during the process but after a couple extra coats you couldn't even tell it was there. I've painted this car before though, so I do have a little bit of experience to fall back on.

I'm heading out right now to take some outdoor photos of the mirrors.

Re: Picking My Color

I say 6 or 7... since you want a bronze tone - too much bronze looks "old" IMO and the mid/lighter tones actually stand out more than darker ones if you're looking for the metallic paint to show best, day or night. Good luck, I'm sure you'll make a nice choice anyways and the car will look awesome. I suggest looking at samples in direct sunlight and compare the blue, bronze and green tones of grey - you'll be surprised how much the differ when compared side-by-side.

It is hard to chose a color, I know. I'm just glad not regreting mine. Hope you don't either so take your time!

I almost suggested your color to him a couple times..but never did. I love the color of your car.

OP, I like the drivers side mirror the best. Doesn't look too gold/bronze.

Thanks... I think he asked me once

And yes, the pass side looks more yellow/green tone. The original is too dark IMO - but I see where he's going with it.

Re: Picking My Color

The first shot of the driver's side mirror looks different from the second shot, so it's definately a colour that needs to be seen in the sunlight to get a good idea of the true hue of the paint.

I agree with Ken, set out all the potential colours you are considering out in the sunlight to get a good idea of exactly how they will look.

I still prefer the driver's side colour though, just seems to vary alot depending on the lighting.
