Rio Red GT. Below is an older picture of the car from the "for sale" ad. I am planning to ad a set of "Cobra Rally" stripes (https://www.bmcextremecustoms.net/19fomucorast.html), but I keep going back and forth with color. I am thinking either white or black. I like the visual "pop" of white on Rio Red, but black will tie in better with the black top. Now, the reality is I rarely have the top up - usually only when I wash the car, or have to leave it parked for some period of time. So, help me decide. If someone has photoshop abilities and is willing to post as A - B comparison that would be great.

I have a Rio Red 'vert too. I vote for satin/semi-gloss black or subtle carbon fibre

If you had a hard top I would have said white, but with a black top I would say black or graphite like ttocs said.

Appreciate all the replies and opinions. In the end, I am on old-fart and opted for old-school. White it is. Really considered silver for a bit, but the classic white on red won out. I'll post pics shortly.

It was a kit. Came from Motor-ink.com. My wife and I did the install - not too difficult. Precut pieces (front bumper, hood, roof (obviously I didn't use this), trunk deck and spoiler. Available in a lot of different color options. They call is a "Cobra Rally Stripe".
