Okay all you photoshop pros...go to town! We are trying to figure out what color to paint the rottinchop. We were originally thinking white but graphite and dark gray have reared their ugly heads as well. Really no color has been ruled out so get creative!

Never mind the lack of tail lights, it is getting the one piece corvette tail light panel.


and front shot again this is just to get idea of look with full colors


Thanks!!!

John,

This may be close to your graphite color and is on one of the 87 Meras. This paint looks good with the stock silver.gray/black interior.

I don't know if this link will work at all since it seems to me to be a mobile link but I am now leaning toward yellow.

I don't mind the yellow paint, but I like red for a Fiero or Ferarri.

Since this is a chop, black. Lamborghinis should be black.

Aside from photoshopping, see near the bottom of this page. The darker metallics or even the pewter colors look beautiful:

Using Photoshop in this case is really difficult with the images you provided. The car is multiple colors right now. That makes it hard to use any type of transparency layer to colorize the car and make it look any bit realistic.

That being said, just have a look at THIS LINK. hundreds of color combinations to look through till something catches your eye.

Keeping in the white / gray wheelhouse, I particularly like the silver one 9 rows down:

This one from "He who shall not be named" is very aircraft inspired. Love how mean it looks! maybe just a little darker graphite color...

Jets i think that is definitely the way to go. it will make it look closer to Amida's nose, which is totally bada$$.

I like white, but not bleach white. I vote a pearl white. My 2k prelude had a nice pearl white, and the cadillacs used a nice creamy one too.

White was the original idea. I think the current Hyundai pearl white was a player.

Have you looked at the link I posted above? It has every combination of grays, silvers, whites, pewters, and even other colors that may change your mind altogether.

Of course this is MY personal opinion... but I always considered white a color that one paints a car when they can not come up with a color. Thus do it in the total absence of color

Black was mentioned, and CAN look amazing. There is nothing that can compare to a black car with a good coat of wax. On the other hand, It is a VERY hard color to keep up with though. Wash it, and 10 minutes later it will look dusty again. Add to that all the custom body work done all over your car, black will show each and every of the tiniest and otherwise unseen imperfections.
