new paint job in the horizon for the ED?

well i just got thinking yesterday- since the ed's panels and paint arent the best they can be atm i was thinking about doing a spray job myself, now i'm faced with the decision of colour

the engine bay is gonna be done in a flat black colour to match newer engine bays

i just dont know what colour would suit the actual car?

ive been looking at the recent BA colour sheet and there are a few i like
mercury silver
blue pearl
phantom
envi
mandarin

i like envi and mandarin to stand out from the crowd, but are there any that you think might suit it?
after i get a few recomendations i like i'll let the photosop forum have a go at it

Re: new paint job in the horizon for the ED?

Hmmm, if it were me i wouldnt go for Mandarin, i reckon it'd make the car show its age more to be honest.

Phantom could look good with some nice rims?Have to be a pretty good spray job to get it right though i think, not sure.

Re: new paint job in the horizon for the ED?

tommi, you do realise theres more to spraypainting a car than just slaping on some colour......... there is a reason why car painters take a 3 (sometimes 4) year apprenticeship, and tackling a colour change is one of the hardest thnigs so do straight up.....

that said, if you think you'd be able to pull it off, go for it.

Re: new paint job in the horizon for the ED?

Gotta Agree with Wayne,
Spray painting a car is something that takes alot of skill. the first car i painted was a XE and painted it black, had to be the worst job ever!

You get better over time but those colours are colours that would require a large amount of experience and skill.

Re: new paint job in the horizon for the ED?

Paint the sucker blood orange, with a gloss black bonnet and some huge chrome rims (Simmons, FR19's)

Painting a whole car including colour change yourself is going to suck. But have fun all the same!

Re: new paint job in the horizon for the ED?
