    Should i paint my car charcoal? what does it look like?

    I don't know what charcoal looks like, but my friend keeps telling me to paint it that color. right now, it's painted deep metallic blue, which looks black at night, and blueish purplish at day time, depending on the angle.

    So does anyone have a pic of a charcoal car? and i've never messed with photoshop, and i dont' even have it, so i don't know how long it takes to change the color in it, but if it doesn't take to long, and someone would be willing, then i'd appreciate it much. just let me know and i'll email a pic. thanks

    i had a Charcoal 300Z up until about 2 weeks ago, and I LOVE the color. I would love to see a clean 3G with a glossy Charcoal finish with a heavy clearcoat. It plays tricks on ur eyes at night. You think it's black, but ur able to see every detail, curve, and angle about the car... ...much unlike Blah Black.

    Go for it!

    hmmm, i'm really not sure. people are telling me that it looks too much like the stock color, and other people are telling me that i'll never regret it. i'll just have to see what colors they got at the shop when i take it to get painted

    MY car is that color its like a really dark grey I think it would look sweet re-painted, which I'm going to do. It will be really close to a black color with a fresh paint job I think.

    i'm not modding my car to please others. someone told me that charcoal would look good, and i just wanted to see what it would look like. if i liked it, i would do it that color, if i didn't like it, i would paint it some other color.
