Question Opinions Please

Hi, I need some help deciding what colour to do my new bonnet scoop.

I have a 1995 Classic in Light Silver, got a new in-take bonnet scoop and painted it in what should have been the right colour but its not Now I'm in two minds as to try again to get Light Silver or to paint it a Gloss Black

You could just leave it the way it is, it looks OK. Black is easier and would look better. Even better respray the whole car black, that's what I have planned very soon as I have a silver late classic.

Thanks aluian, I plan on doing a respray, but not yet and I prefer the original colour, as for the scoop it definitely needs to be a different colour, the pic doesn't show how off the colour is Thank you Halfords !!!!!

Re: Opinions Please

I'd carbon wrap it like pilot said. Get the intercooler scoop done as well, should all match up nicely then. I've seen a few silver scoobys like that with the carbon spoiler on the rear also
