Default paint options

i know a guy where i live that will paint my car any color and do the body work for $1,500. i want to do something different but not retarded. i want to keep it black definetly and add a pearl to the clear. he had a thought he knows a color that is black with red flake and with blue pearl. im not sure if i want that much but i think i would want to see it first. does anyone know of any places on the net i can look at colors.

It might be that the prices are higher there or that people owe me favors but i can get it cheaper and look around at other cars at cardomain.com and i dunno, black is hard to mix up or add effects to, maybe a metalic black, or a REALLY dark metallic grey perhaphs?

I guess you could also do that as well, VERY dark blue red or green metallic so you can see the color with the light, some kind of dark pearlescent effect going on there, and it would look cool, and its perfect for stock kept dsm's

That kinda sounds nice, but youd have to see it on, to actually tell how would it look like.... maybe a sample... where did you find it?
