    Picking a final color is HARD!
    I've decided to go with the cleaner, 1 color paint scheme with an accent.

    BUT

    I'm not fully convinced. I like white, and my car's been white for the last 10 years.
    I'd go pearl white so it would be different, but not a lot. pear white is still a bright color.
    after all, white is the most common color on vehicals.

    I've narrowed it down to going pearl white with a blue/silver accent on the side and hood.

    OR

    I could go a sliver metalic with a darker blue/charcoal stripe on the sides and hood.

    WHAT DO YOU THINK?? I need help deciding.

    Please vote and comment as you like.
    I'm out of town this week, ariving back Friday. the following week, paint will flow. :) :)


    Here's some sample pix:

    I have never been a fan of changing body color on a car, so I say stick with the white. Should look pretty damn sweet when shes all done Jeff, you keeping the wheels you have now on it?

    Paul, my painter and I talked about that. the pearl white he picked out has silver, and some blue/purple flake in it. He likes that pearl better than the suspended pearl idea. I don't know, havn't seen it.
    It's a pretty white/pearl.

    you should see the test he did of cobalt blue candy over siver metalic. THAT is a pretty blue.

    I'm just narrowing down the options.
    It's close!




    Thanks for the reply's - keep them coming!!
    I would like a change, Nes, kindal like I said in the first post. :)


    Brian, I"m going to be looking at wheels. we'll see how soon I can afford that part :)


    Do the pix sway anyone's decision?

    They're in the garage, seperate thread.

    I like how the front part of the flame is netative into the base color.
    But, Flames are pretty common.

    I have a few custom touches in mind for my car, I'll wait to show you the pix on that :)


    What color Robert?

    thats a tough choice... both would look good. im not a big fan of the stripes down the side of the car so its hard for me to visualize it looking "great". pearl would be unique, there's way too many silver cars on the road :dunno:

    im gonna go look at your sketches

    you need to see those flames in person, they are far from common!!

    i like the first two, that last one looks like some NFS nightmare... just my opinion. its really hard to decide on permanent paint schemes cause you better "really" like it!!

    pearl white and whatever else you decide :dunno:

    White, hands down. Color changes suck and white is classy and so nice to clean up.

    Im sorry sir but those kind of racist remarks can not be made on this forum. Please refrain from using that kind of language here from this point on, we are a community that is open to any color.......so " keep it white bro" is not acceptable edict here. :police: :police: :police:

    Not to add another scheme to the mix but have you thought about a white bottom and dark blue top?
