Top half of that poor C6 looks like gray primer

That light gray / darker gray color combo are not doing that car any favors ..

This wouldn't be my choice either. But it's still a good looking car...

Keep it classy, orange stripes and powder coat calipers orange, leave the brake ducts and mirrors alone. I think the cashmere will still work with it.

Maybe smoke the side markers as well to break up the white.

I have an '06 in machine silver and feel the same exact way. I am starting to blackout the canopy as in the pic below. This is fairly simple and inexpensive to do with a vinyl wrap and looks even better if your windows are tinted. After that, I agree with the others - check out vettestripes and see what patterns you prefer.

YIKES!!! Splashes of orange on a white car...are you serious? Maybe if they were a light gray. Something that is as bold as orange, but only done in splotches, will be a very hard resale.
