    Cool Paint schemes

    Crash to new build.
    Ok...I have order a MK4 from FFR will rebuild after my crash in my MKIII. Thing of useing these colors.




    Inspired by Charles Roybal's dilema of picking a new paint scheme for his Cobra rebuild, I thought it befitting to confuse him with as many ideas as possible. :confused:

    Q,

    I would get dizzy trying to pick a color from all of those. You may even scare him out of painting it.

    "Q" after careful consideration and a fifth of Bourbon, I would have to respectfully submit that my favourite is the one with the stripes.

    Charles, there you have your answer. Surely Nomad can't be wrong on this one.

    Can I ask where the original picture came from? I want to make up some different pics, larger if possible to help me decide what colour to go for (at the moment I am liking the black\orange and the orange\grey).

    Many thanks.

    The first pic with the 'Stang is my personal favorite. Too bad the headlights have covers though.

    Q, you offer a lot of creativity with these choices!

    I agree with Dean about everything he said. Fortunately up here the headlights wouldn't have to be covered.

    Any of the purple colors would certainly make it stand out in a crowd! I've only seen one painted purple before..wonder why?..lol

    The yellow with pewter colored stripes, is another rare combo.. it actually looks pretty good like that.

    Saw a Purple one with a Black stripe at the Backdraft factory. According to Daniel they couldn't get the Cobra to sell in that color and they were about to repaint with a new color scheme. I remember thinking that the car would look stunning in a reverse color, that being a black body with a purple stripe.

    Q, would you put up a couple in the ford tan, or sand or whatever they call it please? I'm thinking about painting mine what I call metallic dirt color with ghost type stripes.
