black and orange is popular right now with the onset of the foose customs. he seems to use black and orange very often. it definately looks good, but you have to make sure you use the right orange. if it isnt the proper shade, it will look like a halloween-mobile. if youre going to get the two-tone black and orange, make sure you take it to a PROFESSIONAL, not just someone you know that has a paintbooth.
also, if you really like the look of the black, go with it! dont let other people having the same color paint deter you. but remember, black shows body error very clearly, so make sure your body work is GOOD. as for the orange, if you get the car painted all black, you can always add orange accent pieces. small amounts of color really make a black car. for example, you could get the small recess in the body molding painted orange (or stickered, if you can find the color). and you could get you could redo your ford emblem in the orange, instead of blue.
just some food for thought. best of luck, post pics!
