Aqua Blue Metallic...How close is it to the teal color on my '92?

Hey guys,

I've been lusting after the Aqua Blue Metallic on the '10 Camaros and my '92 is almost ready for paint. I've never seen ABM in person, just in pics on this site. My question is...how green is ABM? I know when you look at it in different light, the color shifts. I'm hoping it is more blue than green. My '92 has a definite green hue when in full sun, but looks more blue in the shade or overcast days. The reason I'm asking is that I dont want to have to have the engine pulled to paint under the hood.

Comments and suggestions welcome.

Thanks!

I don't think the ABM has much green in it at all.

In my opinion, your '92 has LOTS more green than the ABM does.

I bet that car will look GREAT painted Aqua Blue.

Thanks, Anna. I've loved 3rd gen Camaros since they came out. My first car was a black '78 and I drove it through high school and my freshman year of college. Sold it for a black '82 Z28 with t-tops. I drove it until I couldn't afford the gas anymore..LOL. I bought the '92 about 5 years ago because I got the bug again and had loved the look of the 91-92s. I've slowly been fixing her up to the point that I'm probably going to have her painted over the winter.

All the pics I've seen of ABM look stunning and would look great on this car. I'm going to have the shop blow it apart and paint the jambs, backside of the bumper covers, etc. I was just hoping I could get by without having them paint engine bay.

Think of beautiful blue Carribean water. Blue, not green.
Look at the top half of the picture.

These are probably closer to Aqua Blue Metallic. They may still not be quite blue enough, though.
