Delphin metallic, very cool stock color. One suggestion, professional application, it will save you a massive headache.

If you've never done any prep work or painted a car before and you don't want to drop a huge bill, you're better off just going to Maaco or something and letting them do it. My dad owns a body shop and a good paint job costs runs anywhere from 3 to 4 thousand, depending on how much body work the car needs. Maaco could hook you up for a fraction of that, but remember, you get what you pay for.
