depending on what you're after, but you can use straight toner from paint mixing system, for bright reflective effect,use fine aluminum toner, for more rich color with some character,use coarse aluminum, don't forget to mix with binder

1969 GM Cortez silver PPG paint code 2059. That is the color of my camaro. I would post a picture but it is still being restored. Actually being restored by one of the sponsers on here Route 66 Motorsports www.rt66motorsports.com Cortez silver is clean and looks great indoors and outdoors. Thats just my opinion.

I agree. Cortez Silver looks great anytime. It never gets old either. It's a classy color that never goes out of style.
