Not really looking at purchasing anything right now... Don't have the time, nor money for a new paint job.

You can't tell in my pics, but I've never liked flakes, so I put some silver Met. in my clear coat to give it just a lil bit a glisten. I'm not saying you should do it if you want flakes go for it. But I like simple paint jobs nothing two complicated, Two tone always looks nice.

what i'm thinking is...

The Mopar black that is currently on my vehicle
either a double stripe Dodge Red or Hemi Orange
or a strobe hemi stripe around the tail (Dodge red or Hemi orange)

Now granted this won't be done until after I do the engine swap on the Dak. Thinking either the new 6.1L that's in the Challenger or the 392 crate motor from Mopar. (ie. the Hemi orange)
