I think maybe black with a purple ring around the edge of the rim?

I like the opposite of that. Cosmos Purple face and black lip and black painted brake rotors may look nice.

Thanks 68greengoat!

So its official. I ordered the light films in smoke (films are removable in case some cop wants to be picky :/ i do live in VA afterall) AND I choose the purple paint! Im excited! BUT if i get the purple on there and I hate it, at least I know I can always go black.... Im wondering if using a black primer would make the purple darker?? Oh well, experimenting I go!

Thanks everyone!

I completely agree... the green interior lights remind me of barney... they went so far as to put purple leather! so why couldnt they go alittle further and put a more flattering color??


yesterday the thought crossed my mind to possibly do orange but then i got back to my taste lol

If you use a black primer the purple will not be darker to make it darker add black or a darker purple in the base coat also if your rims are just the silver,not the chrome, you won't need primer. Also you can always just use the exact color of your car

Its funny cuz I already have the purple clothes, shoes, purses so when I wear them... like today, people really comment!

I have seen at least 4 other GTO's in my area, two black, one dark blue, and one custom painted purple, its more like lavender rather then the plum color like mine, I believe hers was an '05. I would love to go to a meet, especially after I get the rims painted!
