Post GTA color scheme
Looking for opinions, the old man appears to be hell bent on getting a Maple Red Trans Am of some sort, since it is one of his favorite colors. As much as I love him I am kinda of shying away from having basically the same color car, GTA is Flame Red Pearl Metallic (basically Maple Red with Pearl in it). Now since I have decided to do the engine bay in black anyway, mostly out of necessity/cost, my question to you all is do I stick with the Factory Flame Red Pearl with the factory Red/Gold GTA emblems OR go all in, maybe wait an extra year and do Sunset Orange with Black/Gold GTA Emblems? My other concern is Flame Red almost always looks different in the sun on plastics than it does on metal, I was going to try and hide this by upping the pearl a little bit but it is a concern.

Out of the two I voted for flame red. I think sunset orange is AWSOME, but a bit played out? Im a sucker for good old black though. :thumb

yea i hear ya. I think it looks awsome though done right. Just food for thought....did you ever think about pewter? Ive never seen it on a GTA. With tinted windows and black honey combs, I think it would look pretty sharp.

I like the SOM idea on a GTA. I seen SOM on a third gen Camaro and didn't care for it. Maybe it'll work better on a GTA?

Pewter does nothing for me, it will either be the factory red or SOM

I def. like the GTA better than the odd body style of the 91-92 firebirds. I think that is the only body style I never liked of the Firebird family.

Still like the SOM...

Not sure why you don't a black cara again... I love mine and wish everything I own was painted black. :huh
