Best Aftermarket Respray Colour For An AU?

Hey guys,

Im in the proces of doing a custom interior for the AU but after that comes the exterior. Im puttin the TS kit on it (mainly because it is nice and chunky and there arent really any others like it) and will be doing a custom respray. I have had Phantom in my mind for a while but im wondering what you guys think would look good on an AU with a chunky kit on it? Come on guys, if a colour had popped into your head once, blurt it back out into this thread so i can consider it!

Cheers,
Brad

I saw the new sparkling orange colour (not bloody orange) on the BA Falcons...very nice, me missus likes it too but to spent 6 grand just doing up a new colour...no thanks...I'd rather get a supra turbo gearbox.

Re: Best Aftermarket Respray Colour For An AU?

if you go to all the trouble of changing colors imo you might as well go wild in the color, so people can stare and go "That is a nice paintjob"

I have always liked that Candy metallic,, it was the ducks nuts in the late 80's

Sort of a cross between the Regency maroon (late e-series) with a tint of Phantom

Take a nice picture of your car and throw it in the photoshop forum

Brad, what about "Wild Violet"? Saw a car at Calder with that colour and it looked fantastic!
