Default Got color?

This is way out there for me to ask for help but I need ideas. Wild Rice is getting close to being ready to thrash again. I decided it needs color. I was going to paint it Moonglow Pearl but I am tired of Gray's. The color that has been leading the charge recently is FJC Black Cherry Pearl. Being a trail rig dents and scrapes happen so painting it a dark color just make no sense at all and Black Cherry is way to purple when it's dirty! I will not paint it an M&M color and I'm am overly anal about being unique which leaves out Biege and White. I love Seafoam on 40's but since Jerry is my best buddy and he is a green fanatic I wont step on his toes. Champagne is in the suggestion pool but doesn't thrill me. BTW....gotta be a Toyota/Lexus/Scion color!

Default gonna keep pushing your buttons UB...

calliing that m&m is a stretch to my eyes, look at the linked gallery, but I hear ya. To me mineral blue is darker than smurf, darker than melt-in-yer-mouth. Would a metallic green step on Jerry's toes?

This is a passat light green metallic:

Black Cherry is an appropriate Wild Rice color. Champagne is not.

Go for it.
