Ok guys, not like I will actually tell you what color I go with, but shoot me some ideas! I dont want black as I had that, and I dont like red. Other than those two, have at it. Mind you this will be a show car, smoothed, low, and fat. Needs to have good interior options as well. I am the worlds most indesisive person, I am on my 4th set of wheels for the car and it isnt even painted yet
I cant decide what color to paint the stupid thing. So have it!
and thanks for the help.
Kyle
and here a damn pic!

Re: Ok ladies and gents... I need a hand with paint! (BlackieVR6)

Personally, I think midnight blue is sweet-looking and all around boss. Also a dark (almost anthracite) metallic silver is pretty mean. Those are my two favorites, cuz I like stealth.
If you wanted to be flashy you could do RUF yellow, VWMS Blue (like they paint the rally cars, I guess that's probably like a Jazz Blue) or something crazy like that, and you can always look to motorsport inspiration.
If I had maaaaad cash I'd paint mine the same as a TVR Tuscan, the color-change green. But that's cuz my car is and always will be a mean green machine

Hope those help!
edit: as do I hope these pictures, you say below you want bright so here's TVRs for those who are unfamiliar

chevy orange, or a primer clearcoat with a candy finish would look good also i saw a car one time that had a grey primer on it and candy finish it looked like you could dip your finger in it

Four sets of wheels *lol* I´m in double-digits in that category and my car also hasn´t been painted yet. So far for indecisive. But I know if my car is not going to be painted in the original black-violet-pearl it´s gonna be amarant-pearl from Rover, nothing gets better...

Been there, done that...and done that again, and again and again...
Simple question...do you want to stay with a VAG color choice or are you considering anything out there? Depedant on the answer to that question will help determine how obscure my recommendation will ultimately be.
