    what Colour?

    Ok i need a little help here.

    i am trying to decide what Colour to paint my Engine Cover and Center Console.

    the Engine cover is currently ford Ash black, but i think it looks a bit dull on a black car. so im wondering what Colour you think i should Code it all.

    i have Red Calipers but i think this may be to bright, and i would like something alittle more classy.

    also if you could pics up of the colour you think, that would help.

    cheers

    I would go for a graphite grey/anthracite colour and highlight the engine bay with red hoses and ancillaries that would look pretty mean, not sure how it would look on the centre console though

    decide on a theme for the engine bay...and try to tie it in with bits of the car...

    when i get around to spraying up my console its gunna be a gunmetal colour...to tie in with my head unit and GSi steering wheel

    silver is neutral so it will always work...if you have a nice HU that you're keeping...maybe spray it to match?

    I agree with the Dr...
    Go for a theme and accent that colour around the entire car.
