    Hi Everyone
    I know the original buffs will maybe not like this but the 68 is going for body and paint real soon. I am posing a pic as it is right now. Interior is now the original dark green (typical 68) because door panels were like new. I did not wish to destroy them. The seats are now tan leather and oatmeal where the butt goes. I have been leaning towards a plum crazy and alien green (kia color) as a two tone. Now that time is close I am not sure. I really a building a driver and nothing to look ''normal''. Hope yopu know what I mean. My biggest problem is I am color blind. Any thoughts would be great. I like several colors but not sure if they work with interior. Plum crazy and alien green......... tawny gold.......a bronze maybe. Any opinions are welcome. Thanx Frank

    I'd like to see you keep the same color.
    Won't go into all the debates. Just my preference.
    BUT!!!...
    you can do what I did. Really make that color "pop" by having the paint supply store put in a lot of metallic content to the color. It will kick azz over most any other green plus it will look correct.

    For the sake of us who are not color blind. If you going to do two tone the green with a grey or silver. Plum crazy and green , you may as well paint every panel a different color. Personally I would stick with one color.

    You're very limited with the green/tan interior. I'd stick with the green, please no purple, my .02.

    The car doesn't need a fanciful paint scheme to look not "normal" as you put it in today's traffic. You got an outstanding car already. Two tones IMHO do not harmonize with many cars after the early 60s and an overall harmonic look works better than anything else and you don't fail with this clean 68 without vinyl top already. Plus as Matt stated already you're pretty limited with the interior.

    I said it was before your time.
    Back then it wasn't so bizarre.
    Looking back? Yah. Like totally!!

    BTW, notice that the Mopar way in back is green.

    Plus a brown Gremlin and a couple other gold and brown cars; pretty typical street scene.

    Ah, the memories. This is tame compared to things I saw growing up in Los Angeles during the late 60's - the 70's
    What you can't see are their platform shoes.
