LOLOL, how about the carbon fiber wind splints?

I dig them both but on the same respect I have a hard time with metallic black the same I do with pearl white, they just like they they are dirty unless there is direct sun light on them.

"Wheel chocks" LOLOLOLOLOL, no really, LOLOLOL

"i guess im just going to get a pint of each and paint some old fenders i have to see" NOW you are talking! That is EXACTLY what you do. Pick up a couple of fenders from the local body shop scrap metal bin (they will be happy to give them to you) and paint each one a different color and get a good look at them, beautiful!

my 67 Camaro was like the tuzedo black and I had pearl in the paint.Th e pearl made an interesting colour change at sunset or under artificial(neon) lights.
colour choice is a personal thing really
