    Or do something that would stand out, racing green or orange of some sort. Do a metallic job as well :)

    I agree with 1991_Vn2nV, If you're gonna respray it, go for something that'll stand out. But make sure it's a colour that stands out for the right reasons....

    I like the look of a artic white vn with dark tinted windows. Makes a statement but its not too flashy

    Try not to do a colour that will date.The only one i can think of is a silver colour.70s 80s 90s 00s there was always a silver.I like that Smurf blue on the Monaro.Depends on how long you intend to keep it.

    I think a nice rich neon blue would look nice. I've seen that colour on a VS, slammed, with 7" wide 'ceptors and 235s... looked classy, but brute-ish at the same time.

    Then again, I like interceptors too much. probably because I'm pov.

    i would paint it a similar colour to what you have already. then you dont have to pain under bonnet etc that can be annoying(to do it yourself) and more expensive.

    Original, Black or Pink :) Hot House green and Turismo blue are also cool but since they are two really popular colours maybe not
