Default Custom Paint, Hood, Rear Spoiler

WARNING: This post not for purists...

I will be doing a custom paint job on my 93 SE later this year I was considering a slightly more elavated spoiler along with a more sporty looking hood. The idea here is to get away from the sunday-driver look of this car and along to something else. Anyone have an idea on where to get parts like this?
Also... any examples of custom paint for bonnevilles out there anywhere? I need a starting point.

Bonne'* are not normally customized, so you're probably going to have to make it up as you go.

For ideas for paint, the ony thing I can think of would be cardomain.com. You can browse by model.

And, you'll probably get some flak from the "purists". And, while it'* not my style, it'* also not my car... I prefer the stealth approach. "Yeah, ya stupid sumbitch, my grampa car just smoked ya...."

I would be interested in seeing your progress while you do it. For a paint job, what about a deep purple with some type of "gliiter" or reflective sparkles. Two tone would be cool also. As far as spoilers go I know what you mean as far as sporty, but think twice before you do something like that. The last thing you want to do is make it tacky and have not only domestic drivers laugh at you, but also ricers. Dont be a wannabee, but let the car talk to you and go with the flow of it. Making it higher is not the only thing that can be done to it.

Ooooooooo, ghost flames!! If I were younger and more willing to put that kind of money into just an appearance thing, that'd definitely be on my list

What are paint codes? Deep purple. It looks pretty sweet. There is a Firebird where I work at with that same paint scheme. It looks black until you get up close to it. Has to be deep, nothing stock looking or light in color.

I had been considering "black cherry" which is a really dark red that looks black at first... somewhat like the old color you used to see on 70'* Monte Carlos. I'm thinking about some sort of design with the black cherry color, but I'm trying to stick with something that will accent the Bonne'* overall look. A freaking red SS on the side would look absolutely bizzare!

Black Cherry is an awesome color. I have no idea on a design, tho. Not that creative

But a really deep Black Cherry paint job would look SWEET!!!

Black cherry with some Black SS stripes like allmachtiges.

The dual wide ones, with a narrow strip around them.
