    I wanted to do something a little different and went with destroyer grey from the new hellcats. Let me know what you guys think

      Ok, obviously I like Sublime. But, if I was to go a different route I really like your grey. With some black or red accents that would be boss. Frankly I like all the “flat” pastels. I am sure a actual paint guy will correct my terminology but I like that flat grey for sure. Followed by the flat blue. Nicely done Sir.

              They did a nice job. Personally I'm not a fan of the "clearcoated dark grey primer look" as I call these new shiny greys. Makes the whole body look like its gel coat fiberglass but that's my opinion, in the grand scheme of things my opinion means nothing. It's a nice job, and if you like it, that's all that matters.

                Yeah, it's a matter of taste it looks like they did a great job. I think it needs stripes.

                  My neighbor has a new Jeep Cherokee that looks the same color with black grille, wheels, and trim. Took months for me to get used to it. I thought it just looked odd. Now I don't really notice it standing out, but I have wondered what it would look like on my 73 Dart Sport with black accents. Now I have a good visual. Thanks. I like it.

                    I had a lot of naysayers when I painted my 72 Duster sassy grass green...
                    Until I did the matte black on the hood and other accents and then it really snapped in looking really nice...
                    I could see all the chrome powder coated black along with the bumpers and so forth.
                    Looks good...

                      I hate the destroyer grey on the new cars, but it looks good on a duster! The accent lines on the older cars helps keep them interesting, even with 'plain' paint.

                            It looks great, I think it's a good color for a hot rod.
