My car is going into the shop monday to fully redo the body and take off any rust and then it will be repainted, the only problem is that I am stuck with two colours they are Baby blue and silver with some sort of blue tint to it what would u guys recommend?

at the time i took these pics the car had no rust i dont feel like taking pics so il just describe where the rust spots are. 1) front driver side door where the front fender meets the door right at the bottom corner. 2) on the front passenger side right next to the sunroof there are a few blotches where the paint is lifting. and there are tiny little scratches all around the car that u can see it rusting just under the paint. all this is because when i origanly purchased my car i did all the bodywork and i did a very bad job cuz it was my first time doing it at the age of 15.

the body kit i bought was from this guy named Philip who is in The Toronto area.

Orient Blue looks fricken awesome on E30s, but the silver with blue tint would be cool. And go with the two stage paint. It lasts longer.
