Sunset orange with stripes?

Does anyone have any pics of a Chevelle thats painted a burnt orange with stripes.....I love the dark orange on the Pontiac(Sunset Orange Metallic I think) and wanted to see what a Chevelle looked like with it.....It's either Orange,Red,Blue, or Black with a stripe or stripes......So I would love any pictures of these......Thank You

Re: Sunset orange with stripes?

I know the color your talking about and it would look awesome on a Chevelle. I think pearl white stripes would look great with that color

Re: Sunset orange with stripes?

It's Gorgeous.......

So is the paint code sunset or burnt orange; and who's GM, Chrysler? Or is that a standard 71 color?

I assume it's metallic?

Do you think a novice who's been in autobody school for 2 years could spray a metallic.

Here's my progress thus far; www.fquick.com/ragtop396.

I LOVE that color combo with black stripes....

Checked out your pictures in the photobucket link. The picture from the rear of your car is absolutely striking!

Re: Sunset orange with stripes?

I try not to miss the Aces NorthEast Regional in June, in NorthEast Maryland. If you could make it up here, it's a great show.
