'car colour' what a great decision you have to make,

I know it's subjective ..but I personally think that there's an 'optimum' colour for every model of every make out there, and lots of choices in between,
I once did a print campaign for Standox based on this idea but anyway.. 

I've got a late model Light Silver HPE and though this is probably a common colour for this model I think that it shows it's form beautifully ( has lots of depth )
and I find when we're out in it I'm 'always' taking photos of it in different light. ( while the family go on Wink

however if I had a pre-facelift Spider I'd be tempted to go for a 70's flat colour, powder blue, brown, light yellow or green etc ..rather than a metallic grey.

Those cars make a statement.

( For what it's worth, and if it were me  Wink

My Alfa spider is this colour. It is called Rosso Brunello !17/B

Sorry for the “trailer” shot! It was just being moved Wink

Nice Ph.3 - JTS or V6?

That's one of the colours I'm trying! I found the Lancia Rosso Brighton a little too brown

3.2 V6 Smiley

No one else has said it yet, so I will. If it left the factory in white, repaint it in white. Originality is important and in years to come a quality job will pay dividends.

Just my opinion of course...

It's a point of view but if I were too concerned with originality I wouldn't have it on throttle bodies or be putting in a bulkhead for power steering! Fair comment on originality and value but with the amount of work going into this car selling it will be when I'm too old to drive it.

Since I really don't like the way any white cars look that's the one colour it won't be. At the moment I'm 75% a dark blue and 25% a burgundy of some sort More paint tests at the weekend.
