Go black, but be sure the car is dead straight and be prepared to spend some time with a quality polish... :D

Black looks great but the body has to as straight as it can. It will show up every imperfection and dint on the car. Black Pearl with look sweet as though.

if your going 2pack, i would be getting a few cheap panels from the wreckers to practice on. You don't wanna bugger up your job on your car and waste all that time and money

if you spray it black and can still see some little dents in the panels then you could always spray a coat of metal flake clear over the top it stands out heaps and hides little dents well.
