So basically they have "downgraded" this color? The tintcoat makes for a better looking paint, right?

Atomic Orange

I'd love to hear from a "paint pro" on this also as I have an '08 on order to be built the week of July 30 in Atomic Orange.

don't mess with my color!
:agree:

Hmmmmmmmm, I guess timing is everything. Wonder will it still glow from miles away like the center of an atom when the sun hits it coming over the highway horizon at 70+ mph? :huh:

But then again the change will potentially set all 2007 Atomic Orange Vettes apart from any other year (at least color wise given it is the only year that offered the color as a "Tint Coat").:thumbsup:

Good New or Bad News?

I feel that the fact they they are no longer using the tint coat makes out cars more attractive to me in the long run. But will this affect getting paint in the future should we ever need touch ups or body work?
What do you fellow gentlemen of good color choice think?

When possible, I would like to hear from someone who has seen an atomic orange 2007 next to a new 2008 atomic orange close up and describ the differance.

That's great. I wanted an Atomic Orange 'Vette, but the price was too much.

I'm interested in hearing the reason(s) for the change. I guess that means that I have one of only 1749 coupes that are the original atomic orange "tint" coat. Not even a year old and we 2007 AO owners have a collector... :D

I was told the reason for the change was:

"....That tint process was not used in 2008. We have a limited
availability to do tinted clear coats in the plant and with the two newcolors coming on one had to go....."
