Mind you - have you seen those *mica* filled paints ? I like the silvery golds myself. I owned a couple of Vauxhall ( GM - UK ) Cavaliers with a great colour that wasn't *quite* silver or gold but had a hint of gold and tended to 'adopt' the colour of its' surroundings. Rather nice. Everyone agreed it was a way cool colour. My neighbour called it 'oyster' IIRC. Does that appeal ? I can offer the GM UK paint code if you like. There are actually 2 similar colours - one with a hint more gold than the other - but they both have the same trick of being chameleon-like. It goes well with beige interiors too btw ! Graham
