Re: need help with choosing a new paint job

To be honest I've never been a fan of pearlescent whites on anything. If I was going to go for a non-standard colour on my Scoob it would definitely be something that stood out. Tbh, the colour I would probably go for would be this colour;







Not to most peoples tastes I'm sure but I love the bright lambo colours and i love oranges, pinks and purples (though not necassarily on a car i might add) There is also drift team in Japan that paints their Imprezas and Evo's this colour and they look very cool. I think Imprezas can get away with garish colours in a way most cars can't. Personally gonna stick with my Sonic Blue Mica, though when re-sprayed would like a little more flake in the paint. In fact, why not consider Sonic Blue Mica? It looks fantastic on the V6 Ltd STi wagon.

Heres a coupla pics;

Tooooo subjective buddy.... Motto man says 'one mans meat is another mans poison'

White and black are toughest colours to keep looking good imho

Fastest colour and lightest paint is green of course

i think thats the normnal blue isn't it?

the wrc blue was a special colour for the rally cars only, not even the 22b had it on, also found out it is no longer in existance due to solvent based paint being banned and the water based ones not using the same colour
