Flat black. Best colour for all cars. :D

I would take the black down further on the front to encase the head lights,that body line right above the bumper/turn signal which sweeps up, and follow it along the fender top to intersect with the pillars IMO.That black hood just does not "work" for me.Too mechanical looking with NO flow.
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. :confused:

Hey, beemdubya
I say you should consider the torch red from SPI. I got it on my car and looks really good man. It's in the border line allmost not having orange in it and not dark as bolero or flame either. I like that color and a few of my friends see the color and they comment on it

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!

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

I might get some picks this weekend. If I do I will e-mail you one.

Hey, beemdubya
pm me with your e-mail adress and I will send you some torch red images. I was going to add to thread or add a attachment to replay but I dont know how to do that.

A rich looking gold with the black hood and roof would also look good IMO.
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
