No color fades more than red. Blue is classy stay away from black. Just my .02 I always prefer blue

Again, just my experience but paint pens flake after time. If you're going metallic I'd suggest the gold sharpie but crush the tip down so you get a good flow on it. If you can and have the cash get a staedtler pen. Absolutely without question your best option. Ps get a sock signed

Yeah I don't think I want to use a gold paint pen, My original plan was to use a blue sharpie. But then I thought the red one might be cool. Dan is the auto master and his thinking that the red might fade quicker concerns me.

I have thought about picking up a BLUE Staedtler pen for in person autos, So I might go that route. I think the blue will pop on the black n white photo as well!

For sure wouldn't call myself the master. A lot of guys who don't post on here are far more involved than I. I know I read an article about red ink/dyes Ect fading over time. Has a tendency to turn pinkish. Don't know how much truth there is to it but I've steered clear ever since. I've seen some nice stuff signed in red sharpie though, long turn somewhat concerns me though. Good luck and you never know, maybe he will give you his sock!
