When it comes to paint, I am planning to have 2 tones on my camaro: the main black and a gradient color for the body kit. That why I started by testing the best combination that goes with black. Will use the tail lights bezels for testing (Anyway I hate that chrome thingy!!!)

Here are some pics







I think I need a darker grey, maybe more like cyber grey!

Any ideas of what can go best with black ?

Not going to lie with the title " awakening the burning B" I thought maybe your car got a STD or something.
