Painting my car!

My car is in the shop getting torn down. I am going with the full 93 cobra kit as well as a 2 inch cowl hood. My car is originally blue so I'd like to stick with something similar. Just want to hear some more opinions on what color I should go with!

I'm not set on blue but I think I'd prefer to go with some type of blue.

I'll post some pics of cars I like as well as a sample of what the body shop sent me. Look forward to hearing from you guys

'93 Cobras were only available in red or black or teal. All three look good, but the teal is my favorite '93 Cobra color.

My favorite '96 Cobra color is mystic.
My favorite '01 Cobra color is mineral grey.


2013 Boss 302 gotta-have-it green
2008 Shelby GT500 torch red with black stripes + sequentials
2001 Cobra mineral grey with 2003 Mach 1 shaker hood
1996 Cobra color-shifting mystic paint + sequentials

Right, I know what they came with and I also like the real but I don't necessarily want an exact replica. I was thinking like 93 cobra with a twist. Maybe do a sonic blue with 03-04 cobra wheels, and eventually swap in a termi motor. Or I'll go custom.

I feel like if I want one of the original colors I'll go out and buy one and keep it all original but this is a resto mod so I feel like going different route.

I also like the mystic but I heard the upkeep is pretty intense. I was told if you need to repaint any piece then you need to spray the whole car or it won't look right.

Never seen the mineral gray but I'll check that out!
