Reds are way to common, black looks a little too stealth and wouldn't get the attention your car deserves. Blue-nah, yellow-nah, Dark green metalic-maybe....
I was thinking a biege sorta color from an audi but didn think much of a gold. was also thinking about greens but i couldnt find the right one or one close to the right one that i had in my head. but ur right about the reds.. its really common and someone not knowing any better would think i was just some rich yuppy in a stock porsche. not a poor body man in a fully custom built car.. haha

skeeveman I bet some sort of dirty silver would look good on it

BarryK To me that style car can only be Black or Red.

Until yesterday I saw a brand new Porsche that was a darn good looking blue.
Don't know the color but it was brand new car and it looked good.

It was a special blue of some sort!

Do you have pics of the color? the viper red is just sooo bright its why im liking that more but the torch red might be bright but more red.. you pianted the camaro that color right?

I had a Mustang II painted that way from the factory and it looked great. I got more complements on that car than any I've ever owned. People just seemed to really like that combo.
I never was a big fan of Orange on Porsche's. Either red or yellow for that FAST look.
That orange we were discussing awhile back might look good with the black though. "

Yea, i see what ur saying but my car is the older style porsche and the lines are different. i still have a while to go im gonna have a friend of mine photoshop me a few different ideas and go from there. ill try ur idea out on the computer..
