Fox body color what's the best

Okay we are going to paint the 1990 Mustang that has lived it's life in gray primer... what color looks the best on a fox body?

I was thinking metallic bright yellow or a darker Blue
I like red but there are so many red Mustangs out there.....

It's a coupe if it matters


PHoto's will help
Thanks

hardcore bracket dudes around here use a dark single color for low visability.

metallic dark blues always look mean under the lights, and good in the sun too.

That grabber orange clearcoat they have on the 2009 Ranger.

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid-in-sideways, totally worn out, shouting.."holy crap.... what a ride!"

FWIW Dan, midrange colors show body damage the least. Somebody might beat me for this but I think Viper Blue or the new Chevy color Burple would look good on one, I hope to paint mine that color next year.

dont do the dark blue then, haha......or black. unless its flat black. you should go silver, some gun metals, grabber orange, or that 70s light blue used on mach 1 stangs. you need something opaque with not a lot of depth to it.
