Welcome new camo owner!

Yeah, we usually just use camo, camouflage metallic is just TO darn long :D .
(Hey most of the other colors are down to 3 letters, BOP, BCP. . . :p )

My only issue with the color is no neon goes really well with it.. I guess green is gonna be the way to go..

You can get a little bottle about the size of white-out from the dealer for about $10. (He may need to order it.) My dealer sends me a flyer every month with coupons including one for touch up paint for $5.95 yours may do that too.

As to neon the color isn’t actually that hard. In the dark we don’t really read as green but just “a dark color.” I have blue neon underglow and that works for me. (Just can’t paint match the blue anywhere else -- in daylight that would look horrible.) I also think white looks great against any color. Of course green works to :) .

(I just added a multicolor LED kit too, and need to take updated shots.)

Scion did some changes during 2006 to the xB. We call the boxes released after the changes 2006.5. Big things were they retired camo and BCP and replaced them w Shadow Mica & Salsa Red. They also added the new steering wheel radio controls, and changed the seat fabric. For more check this thread:

In the day the difference between Shadow Mica & camo is pretty obvious. . . . when you have them side by side. (That’s why the shadow in our club & I try to park next to each other at shows.) At night its much harder :rolleyes:

Not the best shot, but here we are at the Hamer show last year:

I wish.. I bought mine used from a ford dealership.. But ill hit up the local Scion dealership and see if they can get a bottle for me.. I dont need any more than a little bottle. I plan on blacking everything out on the car so Ill be making it even darker.. Still kinda leaning towards green..

The color is more likely Shadow Mica (more metallic and more gray than camo). The nice thing is most dealers still have the magnetic paint samples in their show room. They could actually take the sample outside and put it next to your car. If it is a match, you'll have Shadow Mica. If your car looks greener with less metallic, you have a camo. Either way, the dealer can order touch up paint.
