Hi,

Just looking for inspiration regarding a full respray. Engine is on its way out so it will be a full engine bay, door shuts etc......

I'm really looking a a few pic's and possible colour codes.

I was thinking Dark purple, really dark Blue, possibly black....... but as you know almost litmitless colours to choose from and time before the car needs to be reprayed is running out!!!

Help!!

A friend of mine runs a body shop, so i'm not paying very much at all!!!

Its going to be a full two week effort though as the engine is out, doors are coming off etc.....

Its just one of those things, too many colours too choose from. I'm not after too in your face, i want something that gives a very high gloss finish (its always garaged and cleaned).

I'm looking at Dark blue, i've found an F360 in really dark lustrous blue but trying to colour match it is almost impossible!!

Keep the ideas coming people, its appreciated

What about Toyota RSP?
Was just about to say Posseidon blue as found on citreon saxo's I've always loved the colour its a metalic paint and when clean and polished up is amazing also gives you different colour in different lights. But its very much like the colour above on the supra.

If I was to change the colour off my skyline I would rather chose a colour completely different.

Right the engine is out and the car is undergoing major prep for the full respray

here's some pics







Next job is windows out, full prep then high build the whole car. Then ready for the base coat, pearl coat and ready to be lacquered. Before she gets her new forged bottom end!!

A lot more to follow!! :bananasmile:
