My .02. I like Calypso Coral over Grabber Orange. Don't do metallic. It just
doesn't look right on a classic for some reason. Again, just MO. I was going
to put Audi's Nogaro Blue on my '69 which is a pearl and metallic. It's
gorgeous, but after a few test panels with it, I decided to go with the same
shade of blue but without the pearl and flake. It looks much "cleaner".
Check my website, can you imagine pearl over that beautiful color?? Don't do
it to yours.
