It's actually some white from a 2005 pt cruiser and a modified velvet green to match. It's more washed out than the other velvets at the show.

Here are the best options as I see it:

-Paint it solid light grey

-Paint it velvet green and pearl white inside and out.

I agree. Velvet green/pearl white is my favorite color combo... but I'd lean toward solid light grey since it's neat and the original color... just my opinion!
