...but then it will look too "dipped in a can of paint", as my dad puts it, for a car of that time period. I dunno. I already love it the way it is, maybe I shouldn't mess with a good thing.

the debate in my mind never ends!

well keep this in mind, black goes with everything, so having black highlights on a car of most any color cant be bad...

color match where needed, but dont forget to have points on the car that bring out a particular highlight. Other wise as you said it will look as if the whole car was dipped and it looses its shape basicly. So dont forget to have contrasts. Highlight the cars accents (the german accents yuk yuk )

As I was walking up the stairs, I met a man who wasn't there. He wasn't there again today, I wish I wish he'd go away.
