Need opinion, paintin my car!!

Hi guys, This is the first time I am painting my car and i wanted to get your opinion on it.
The car is 95 civic coupe and color is green;
I am going to keep it the same color or one level darker,
but i was wondering if i should add pearl in it or not.
And any idea what color of pearl i should add to it?

Keep it stock / OEM.

Pearl is fashionable for a week / month.

Keep it clean.

My old 98 Civic was a very nice OEM green. The colour is called Cypress Green Metallic. It looked great IMO when it was clean and in the sunshine.

alot of the stock civic paints that are green are already pearl. anyone telling pearl is hard to match doesnt know what they are talking about. only custom pearls are hard to match.

You won't even have to change the shade, I'm pretty sure the fresh coat will look like a different shade.

Keep it simple.

JDM ALL DAY YO! lol
