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.

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.
