Nevermind guys, he said he can fix up all the little problems with the current paint job easily enough so im just going to do that. I dont mind this colour anyway it just had alot of imperfections.

I had this dilemma a while back, and ended up going black with a lilac pearl.
I got a few different blue's and green's, as well as silver's. All sprayed on some colour cards, so i could take them and show mates, etc and get some opinions, and have a think about it myself.
I'm still happy with choosing to go black, but as of course you know, its a b**ch of a colour to have to keep clean.
If you can't keep it in a garage when you don't use it, i personally wouldn't even bother with the darker colours. Mine gets dusty sitting in the garage over 5 days, because of some air movement and it just settles on it.
Shockwave would be a nice colour for an EL, just remember some of the Ford colours, like EGO, may be hard and expensive to get hold of. I know i couldn't get Fantasy when i was looking. Well i could only get hold of 1 litre @ $1,500 a litre.
One thing would be, once you choose a colour, get another 2 litres mixed up, or remember the amount of pearl (if any) that's used for future respraying...
