Midnight indigo pearl under the right light can look a bit purple, just as corvette yellow can look a bit green. So perhaps we can grant you honorary status! ;-) Love the bullet!

Question for my midnight brethren: what tail lights look best for this color? I have some 97+ sitting around but I'm kinda thinking the stockers look good...

I thought this picture looked familiar, I don't know where it is but Virginia has a certain look to it. I have a silver SC400 and stay out in the Gainesville area. I will certainly give the double tap on the horn if I see you around.

yeah, you can definitely tell the entire DC area has this look about it... the sunlight or something, i don't even know. i'm out in centreville, right by you. i don't drive the sc that much, but i'll keep a look out for you! SCs are rare cars in this area.

Default Change to Midnight Indigo Pearl


I have Royal Jade 1996 SC300 with 64k miles. Poor paint has been ravaged by birds and other harsh things from sitting outside. Other than that its almost like a new car.
I am going to get it totally repainted.
What are thoughts on color change, in this case, to Midnight Indigo Pearl.???
I will paint door jambs, door edges, and a little under the hood.
Would this really decrease the value or resale appeal as some of my car buddies imply? It's going to be a garage queen, low miles added car, maybe 4000 per year.

Appreciate thoughts and opinions.

Get whatever color you feel....

I decided to stay with the original color to avoid door jam, trunk, and engine bay contrasts but even then the body shop went a tad darker and increased the metallic mix and vastly improved (IMO) the look of the car....

You should be able to work on the mix and come away with a good result...
