Black will always be my favorite color on a coupe. I've always loved most of Subaru's OEM colors but the dark metallic ones are amazingly sleek.

Im looking to purchase Basecoat for my GC build, I will be painting the interior, engine bay, exterior basically everywhere except underside of car. I want to use Steel Blue Mica 86F but so far the sites that I have looked on have shown the color as Blue Steel Metallic is this the same color? I want to have the exact color as the 1999 RB5 in Steel Blue Mica.... Any help?? Good quality paint recommendations for basecoat?

paint code is 86F and Brits call it Mica

NASON is the cheapest quality and goes up from there but the secret is the choice of clear coat. You may very well spend more for the clear than the paint and material combined.

I’d definitely throw SRR in there with Aspen. SWP is a nice color too but I wouldn’t say it’s Subaru’s best. WRB is a signature color, no getting around that one.
