painting a gold 82 300SD...

A new color besides the original. Has the tan interior.

Looking for suggestions on a cool colour, thanks.

I always have liked gold on old Benzes... Maybe you should try that light blue, I think that color looks great on 126s.

How about Antracite Grey? Is there a colour code that I could get that I could take to a shop, and have them tint it Anthracite?

Sorry guys! I learned a hard lesson when I was a much younger man when I changed color on a car. UNLESS you are going to keep this car for many years (read, forever) I would suggest you get the color code off the body stamp and STAY WITH IT! Re-selling it is a real hassle...

Just a thought to consider.

Thanks, but I'm not looking to stay with gold.
