Need to see some custom paint jobs. Non standard GM colors. Was toying with idea of different paint to make truck standout. Lets see some photos or ideas!

aquamarine is my favorite powercoat color ( i know your not going to powercoat the truck).

I believe BASF has a similar color called ocean blue but it may not be in production anymore.

In a shadow the paint looks blackish.

In the sun in one direction it is a metallic deep green.

In the sun is the other direction it shifts to a metallic deep blue.

I'd go with a bright blue color if I were to paint my truck. GM doesn't really offer a good blue color like I wanted. Blue with lots of metal flake would kick ass IMO.

Not a fan of blue unless its real dark. My favorite color Ive seen was on my bros 04 F250. It was a deep burgundy color. IMO the GM burgundy is too purplish to me. Not knocking those with that color. Just wanting something in that shade to set apart from other trucks.

That'd be one to do it! I too am a fan of the really dark cherry red. I like it when it looks black most of the time, but you can see red where the light hits. Thats badass.

Nope none by us really. as for the "real" northwoods I do not know.

Deep cherry red is also one of my favorite colors.

I like # 25. I seen a new chevy 1/2 ton the other day, and it was a bright blue color. It was sweet looking. We have a Pete that is a great looking deep purple color. It would look awesome on a chevy. If I can remember, I'll get the paint code for it in the morning...if you want. I might even try to post a pic of it.

or this color, this is Fendts Fir green color, I think it looks sharp but a little too much forest green hue in it for me.

BTW the above picture is Fendts Black Cherry Color

I always thought the laser blue metallic on the 05-06 cobalts, malibus, impalas, and equinox's was one sharp color. Im going to paint my 98 that color when I get her finished.

well I had the same Idea at one time this is what happend...it is a GM color though they offered it in the cobalts but its not tinted the same the paint shop tweaked it a little to have more depth i gues you would call it not just a gloss orange kinda hard to explain since I dont know paint terminology

yeah its kinda a deep gloss burn orange look...I liked it so I just said go for it...i needed a door painted that got messed up and as usual I went overboard and repainted the whole truck...the factory color was that light blue I liked it but it wasnt flashy enough...I have to be different
