This color is also available in candy colors. The car below was painted with house of kolor orion silver base (color code: BC-02), then it was topcoated with house of kolor cobalt blue candy (color code: UK-05).

As you know, different automotive paint companies have different color codes for the cobalt blue paint color, but they are all the same exact (non-candy) cobalt blue color.
 
The PPG/Ditzler color code for the cobalt blue color is: 6140
 
The Dupont color code for the cobalt blue color is: P4989
 
The Sherwin Williams color code for the cobalt blue color is: 64749
 
But these are not "Candy" color codes, like the house of kolor paint codes listed in the last post above this one.

Food for thought... Scans of 30+ year old pics don't do it justice, but this was my '74 Sport, circa 1981. Two-toned it with '76 Cadillac colors (#2748, 'Commodore Blue Poly & #2772, 'Innsbruck Blue Poly'). Masked/counter-masked the colors and dividing pinstripes then clear-coated the whole thing. The finish looked a mile deep. Looked kind of 'moody' at dusk and low light, but really 'popped' in the sunlight and at night under street lights.    





Pic of a two-toned '72 I found on the web a year or two, ago. Really like this one, too!

Oooh I do like that! I think it'll be a case of see how it looks once I've jacked up the rear and fitted the new wheels all round then paint it :) 

Reckoning the candy blue may soften it a little look wise and the black would make it look more aggressive/stealthy!

The car in the picture below was painted in "Dodge Viper Blue", it should give you a good idea on how yours will look after being painted.

Torn between the three, my thoughts again are

Candy blue will soften the overall look of the car and make it look a little less aggressive but nice

Dark blue with a black roof will look nice

And a black/real deep body with a mid blue roof will have that classic muscle car look.

Thing to do now I reckon is to wait until I've got the new CC811's on the rear with the 285/65/17s then play with photoshop to see which one compliments the whole set up.



Unless anyone has any pictures of a car with massive rake angle and an awesome paint scheme ?
