Sepia Adjustment

inspired by Fiat 500's and Minis (the new colors)
curious if an "adjustment" to sepia is more correct than a change to Slate, beige-gray, viper, blut, etc.
any opinions?
thinking of togo and bitter as well (356's, old mercedes, jags, etc.)






the three images are varying mixes. the bottom photo is a slate car where the light makes it look like there is more red and more saturation

when it comes to colors it's all what you as the car owner likes .
some cars even though the color maybe butt ugly should not be changed . by doing so at time it will take value away from the car .

thank you
I guess I am fortunate that one color change was already done by a PO (black) I mean the color, not the PO

it's very hard to tell colors on a monitor . it's the same with photos of what color people want there cars painted . back in june a customer took a photo out of a car mag. and want us to paint his viper that color . the mag. had 3 photos of the car in that color he wanted non of the pic's had the same shade to go from .
