So I'm repainting my 1997 GMC Sonoma and I'm gonna go with the same metallic blue it's got and add coarse rainbow metallic, what's the best place to find the factory paint, pretty sure it's light stellar blue metallic? I know it already has metallic in it just adding more lol, I love the color just not sure the best place to find it or if I should take a sample and take it to a place to be made yk paint looks fine on this side but the other side well let's just say it needs new paint haha

Paint or Wrap both look good and require a smooth surface when done correctly. That's where most of work goes usually. Some better Coatings applied properly don't need any post paint sand and buff which saves time.
Yeah we will be doing the body work before paint just seeing if there's any difference between companies really seeing if ones better than the other type thing and tbh I'm not the biggest fan of wrap it's awesome but I like the depth you get with paint plus we don't have to pay anyone to paint it lol I don't know how to install wrap so
Periods and commas are free.
Didn't know I had to be grammatically correct on an s10 board, figured we finished school for a reason no? Lol

You want depth, check out the reflection in this wrap. You tube is great for this ck wraps, paradox styling, premium wraps all good thing to watch if you want to learn
Honestly not bad at all just the only thing is I don't know how much having someone install a wrap would cost, where as with paint we do our own work and everything yk?
Apparently a lot of people failed 5th grade English.
This is a board where proper English is used too get their points across. Some very talented people that charge a lot of money in their day jobs, are likely to skip over posts that are hard to read, so yes, being grammatically correct is kinda important. It's spelled out in the Rules..

Well obviously people got what I said man, stop going on a power trip man, there's literally someone talking to me about getting it wrapped over getting it painted
Play by the rules...or be gone...easy concept.
You're funny man, but sure, I'll play by your grammar rules. Just for you Mr/Mrs admin appreciate ya
If you pay for a wrap $3000 or more. DID you like any of those two colors. I'm doing the accents on mine in black carbon fiber, examples, mirrors rocker panels, bowtie, fuel filler door, and wheels. That blue carbon fiber could be the same if you fresh painted the whole truck and accented a few pieces, even works on interior pieces, check out what I did when I took out the old cassette player when I replaced with Android.
Now phone charger 2 toned wrap.

Honestly it looks good I love the carbon fiber but that 3k dang haha, I'm looking at like 800 for my paint job since I just need the material
Material and tools for my wrap, cost me $500. Watch the videos practice first on small pieces.
Is easy and fun too
