    bored photo shoppers... colour anyone.

    basically car needs a respray, and a friend doing it for free as a favour, i just supply the paint...

    it diamond at min. debating either play safe and stay black, maybe go gloss black.

    or for little extra penny's get some custom paint and have a total overhall of the car, maybe a dark candy red or metalic blue, maybe some one off green too as it;ll stand out more. cant seem to picture it so wondered if any one fancied a play....

    open to anything. litteraly gonna be a blank canvass to play with.

    i quite fancy wine/blood red with black roof and black v following shape of bonnet down over bumper but we'll see...

    few pics as is now... ( minus the key mark go faster strips courtsy of some jealous pr1ck ). cheers.










    forgot to mention, maybe extending arch's out slightly too, make them stand out more, like on an golf gti or xr2's.

    thanks to anyone who gets bored enough to help me. cheers.

    I like candy red, but tbh it looks very sweet as it is! You`ve aslo got to consider what will happen when you come to sell, a modded car is harder to shift than a standard one, with its current colour modded bits can be removed and returned to standard and it will sell. Don`t want to put you off a colour change, its just worth weighing things up first!

    to be fair it got done back in feb once all finishing touches done, but some ones gon to town on it since and keyed all sides and bonnet, and with the free labour it'll be cheap to do so... might aswell take advantage ha

    Personally i would stick black. Go Vauxhall pearlescent black sapphire. Then it will be like new, and easier to do aswell. As a guy mentioned earlier, when you come to sell it will be harder.
