Default Deciding on Color Choice for 968 Repaint

I'm still pondering a complete color change for my 968 project. Strange inspiration but I was wondering if the blue M&Ms are Riviera Blue? Maybe Mexico Blue? What about the green ones? Are they Viper Green? The Orange ones?
Thoughts?

definitely near the top of my list.

but i would never want to do a color that's rare.

but i still think McQueen's Blue is fair game since no 968 has ever been done in that color.

Gene

Put all the M&Ms in a pot and melt them on stove. The resulting color should be perfect.

Jeff - euro? Aren't those tail lamps typically seen on Japanese only?

Is there an orange car in the US? It would likey be a repaint, but I guess that a special order is possible.

What's it like to own one of these vivid colored cars? Do you ever get tired of the high visibility?

I think a metallic orange/copper would be an amazing color for the 968...

Either Atomic Orange Metallic (lighter color below) or Daytona Sunset Orange (darker color).

Daytona Sunset would be my choice of the two. Although that Copper looks fabulous.
