We saw a new SUV go past the house today (didn't get to notice what Brand it was), we were so "Gawking" at the color. it was a light metallic Lime color. I don't like green, but this was really Sharp ! The kind of color that makes an" old model "car look Modern. The first time I've ever considered painting my GT or any car green ! Gotta find out what make it was.

this was some thing "like" what Ford used on the 68 mustangs, maybe a little lighter, Hard to tell, it had so much Clear that was reflecting the light ..... whatever it was, it was beautiful ! I wonder what it would look like on my 87 GT. Has anyone painted their Fiero a light lime green ? Pics ?

about halfway down, in the center of the page , there is a set of " Speakers". But what would it look like on a Fiero GT I wonder. Is there a way of "Photoshopping" that color onto a picture of a GT ??

I really don't think a decision can be made on paint color based on a photograph or a screen image. That picture of the notchback for instance, is washed out by the sunlight and you are only seeing part of the car.

First, what's on the notchback is a totally different color (than the color on those speakers). it MAY be what Ford has on the Focus. I just don't want to go through all the work and expense, only to go ," damn, that's not what I thought it would be". Even going to a "car lot" and looking, What "looks good" on one 1 "type" of car, may look terrible on another. kind of like comparing a bright red Corvette to a bright red Rolls Royce 4 door, know what I "mean" ? That's why I'd really like to see if Someone has Already put that color on a FIERO GT.

I agree with you totally, its really hard to say what color looks good on a particular car without seeing the car in person and of course what looks good to me someone else may think looks awful. Some people like pink Cadillac's
