Thumbs up Starting my winter project. Paint Paint Paint, any color suggestions?

I'm really excited that I finally started working on this car. So far I got some ICE, I got the rims, now I need the paint.

The people who have the car before me have the car repainted and clear coated before it was sold with the same Nasty Burgandy color. I hate this color, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it! Well anyway. I have started sanding the car down, a bit of a pain in the ass. The body isnt too bad though, little dings here and there.

I know I'm gonna need a body kit before I paint, but I dont have all the moola for that right now so I'll have to wait. Yeah Its stupid, doing double work but Its OK...

I'm also gutting out the interior, making a black headliner, reupholstering door panels and laying down black carpet. Damn! I need to start bugging my wife to start helping me. I got alot of work to do.

Oh one more thing before I end. What color do you guys think I should consider painting?

You have to be careful with black. If your not doing A+++ quality work on the bodywork then forget about painting it black cuz it'll look bad. I say paint it a nice bright red.

Yup... go Imola Red, dump that biznitch, and change the bumpers. You'd have a TighT E30.

Yeah man, jeremy's color red is hot too.

I just want the car to had a really unique look about her. I know i have to drop her, as you can see from my pics she's sitting pretty high.

Yeah the bumpers have to go. I was thinking of the Reiger GTS kit then another caught my eyes, the AV3 AutoVogue. Damn this is so confusing.

I also has to do something with a motor. Do i leave the M10 hehehe in there and do some work to it or do I do a swap? I dont want to go nuts with the motor. Maybe s14? something simple but that has a kick to it.

I just saw on ebay, this dude is sell an M50 for $1390 w/everything minus the trans. damn that would be nice!

The M10 is best used as a doorstop.

The S14 will not only cost your first born to acquire, but will need constant attention.

If you're on a budget, an M20 can be had for cheap, and gives a solid amount of power.

For a bit more, the M50 is there. Approximately 1 billion of them for sale.

From there, you have S50, S52, M62, the list goes on. But those are a little extreme for your needs it sounds.

Any shade of silver with pearl blue in the clear would look awsome IMO.
