ok. But actually i need a front bumper which i am having a hard time finding. But this 64 comet is 4 door at the moment it is a dark blue with spots need to be painted over. Think black red or Blue are good. I will try to get some pics to post on here for more help.

4doors look ok in lighter colors. In fact, might I suggest a 2 tone, with the roof being white? Like my '62 Falcon...

hmmm wouldnt be bad. The two tone style makes them look older and well atleast in that pic takes the sporty look out. The comets also come with a streak from front to back so the two toned roof may not look right with a white streak down the side. good idea though

From reading this thread I can see that you have done two things.

1. Asked an open question to anyone for their opinion on what color to paint your car.

2. Discounted everyone's opinion because you've already chosen black.

So my question to you is, what's the point?

GO WITH ELECTRIC PINK YOU CLOSE MINDED TIME WASTER!!!!!!

Now that we have that out of the way. Why not something that was originally offered for that car. . . the manufacturers paid good money in 1963-64 to have some very smart people choose colors that are generally regarded as appealing to the public. If you are planning on spicing up the engine and suspension then grey primer with "fattie white wall" tires is considered as 60's resto-mod look which would completely eliminate the problem.

If it wasn't for the fact that I can't F*CKING sleep I wouldn't waste my time with this.
