    My black 03 coupe needs a paint job badly and I am most likely just redoing it black, but my dad got a 2012 ecoboost f150 in Green Gem paint and I was wondering if it would look good on the terminator, or if anyone has done it before.

    This is the color:

    Thanks.

    It will look like a Bullitt Cobra. I would keep it black but I would paint it tuxedo black.

    No way that color would look good. Some guy on here painted his Terminator with Grabber Blue. Actually came out fantastic. You have a lot better color options than that green.

    I would have to disagree.

    As said, it looks like Dark Highland Green, which was available on Bullitt Edition Mustangs. I remember seeing a guy who has a DHG bullitt, with full 03/04 Body Panels, and the car looks absolutely fantastic. The only way I would color change a car is by doing it the right way, i.e. door jams, engine pay, inside the trunk ect. If not, paint it some sort of black....

    Not gonna lie when i was dreaming and thinking about buying a savage title cobra for a DD this is a similar color to what i was thinking about doing. My dad hat a late 60s mustang in a similar color and i thought it would be cool to have it this kind of green with a little flake that popped in the sun.

    However if you pick green do it right light Ray mentioned above.

    Good luck with your decision.
