Stock blue GM interior, what are my exterior color options?

As of right now my Blazer is primer flat black (rattle canned and peeling BAD). I read on how to rattle can paint your exterior properly but want to go with a different color. I'm not that good with color mixing really (at best i can only go either light or dark using the initial color, like blue; darker/lighter). Anyone have any color ideas or have pictures of different colors that go well with the stock GM blue interior? The seats are light blue, the dash it a medium blue I think, so are the panels, my grille is chrome and my tails have the chrome trim on them, so as much as possible I would like to have them stick out more than the paint.

my truck came stock white with blue interior, the interior is no longer blue and the exterior is still white, and white looks hawt on these truck, especially with chrome.

also proper and rattle can in the same sentence without a negative? really?

Re: Stock blue GM interior, what are my exterior color options?

after the primer is laid down, it's pretty much safe to put any kind of paint (or would I have to stick to special paints that have been treated for automotive purposes, example: Dupli-Color Automotive paint, etc.)? I found a blue, it's almost not like blue but an odd grey, but it is a blue. If all else I'm going to color it flat white with seal.
