Posts Tagged ‘Graphite Grey’

This past weekend we sat down and discussed a bunch of specific elements I wanted my car to have.  My friend Kelan, who is painting the car, is pretty good with photoshop and came up with a few quick mockups to help give us ideas. Some of the criteria we ended up with after deliberation:

  1. Grey/Black top combo
  2. Custom Stripe & 383 emblem (really liked the red pin stripes)
  3. SS hood
  4. Front bumper delete
  5. Shaved door locks & antenna (going to leave door handles though)
  6. Blacked-out grill area
  7. Body colored side markers
  8. Chrome rocker panel and wheel well trim delete
  9. 18″ Coy C-57/Boyd Magneato wheels
  10. 2″ drop
  11. Front & rear spoilers

Here’s two mockups, the first is my favorite as it has most of the criteria we ended up with.

I’ve been tossing around paint color schemes for that past couple of years but have made my mind up. Going to go with a dark grey with black stripes.  My father’s 69 Z28 Camaro was gun metal grey with black stripes and I’ve always liked that combination. My friend Kelan just painted up a couple different greys on a spare car part.

Graphite grey on the left, black in the middle, and dark spiral grey on the right.  I’m heavily leaning towards the graphite grey with black stripe combo.
