    So my 69 runner is in the paint shop and now has come the time to choose what's going on. They are all close but have their differences. All my trim is flat black along with my rims. I'm leaning towards number 2...

    2 in my opinion
    I'm going with a similar color myself but not with black trim

    2 is the most appealing combination to me.
    But I don't care for silver-ish cars.
    Had one "emergency" commuter car in the early 80s. Two tone silver 1978 Pont Grand Prix. Made it orange-copper metallic when I sold it. Silver is just too much of no color for me.

      Aren't 2and 4 the same, just ones in the sun others in shade. ? I believe it's Cyber gray possibly ? If so that's what I'm going with. Both are vettes and that's the newer Vette color. Sorry if I'm wrong. 2 is my vote

      I don't think you can go wrong with any of them personally. I like the gunmetal of #1 but when I look at 4, the light silver makes me think of mmissile's bad ass 67...one of the best looking 67's I've ever seen.
      I'm partial to silver anyway, talked my father in law into painting his 67 Nova the ford Platinum silver and it looks nice!
      Painted my wifes 68 mustang Lexus silver....

          I always say, Pick the color that YOU like best. You won't like my answer anyway. I like COLOR. All the cars today are a boring sea of white, black & silver/grey.

          Welp when I think I'm settled I find this. Found out it's a tweaked Ferrari color. Hopefully I can get some more info on it. Almost looks like a factory color. This with some brushed or nickel trim would be just right!
