getting some money from insurance for hail damage, just checkin peoples opinions

should I go w/ a stock color, white like it is now or som would be my two choices

or should i go custom
my choices would be an orange (something close to the hugger orange maybe) or just a different shade of white so that it stands out as being different when next to other white t/a's, i am considering a light blue also but not sure, it would be a lot of blue and not sure how it would look, i know i definitely want a lighter color because imo it shows off the lines of the car much better than the darker colors

im also open to other colors, let me know what you think/ideas on colors you have

-SOM is gonna look good no doubt about it.
-Not too much of a hugger orange fan.
-I personally love the white you have and then black out the rest of the car. Not the wheels though. It's an idea
-I've always liked silver and it's a light color like you say.
-I wonder what a charcoal color would look like, i've seen it done on camaros and it's not bad at all and is very unique.

You brought up Hugger Orange. I did mine that away and tons of people like it. She stands out to say the least

I definitely would not do stock.

If I had the opportunity to do something unique, I would.

i was leaning more towards paintless dent removal instead of repainting, but today i got t-boned and need a new passenger side door, so ill just go ahead and repaint, im really considering the color on the cover of the gm high tech performance mag this month, any comments
