Don't know of any web site. Best bet is go down to your trusty paint supplier and drool over his color chip books. If you will do a lot of painting, you can buy a chip book from the paint manufacturer but they are in the $45-$55 price range.

I bought one of the HOK chip books too. Bad idea if you want to make an easy color selection! WAY too many luscious colors to choose from. Amazing what the candy colors do with different base colors isn't it.

I did it the easy way. Took my wife car shopping on a Sunday. Went to all of the car dealers in the area to see what colors were available on the new ones. The colors usually look different on something than they do on the paint chips. The problem with that is remembering where it was that you saw that "just right shade of blue". Of course it doesn't look anything like that color when you go to the paint supplier and look at their paint chips. So much for that idea.

I tell all of my customers to do their homework before deciding on paint, but when you decide...dont go looking again! Go through your magazines and look at the centerfolds or more-than-1-page-cars/trucks. Look at what colors/grafix look good on vehicles with the same shape/modificiations that you have on yours. Orange (specifically Tangelo Pearl from HOK) has made a SIGNIFIGANT comeback in the last few years as a fat-fendered-rod color, whereas Kandy-Apple Red was THE color in the early 70's. On new cars, tri-coats (Kandies) are beginning to run their course out and multi-coat pearls and 'heavy' or 'warm' colors are coming back in (dark blues, greens, even purple). Just look around at what colors look good on YOUR car, cause tangelo orange looks TERRIFIC on a 40 ford, but looks like a "Merge Ahead" sign color on a 2002 Dodge Ram.
