Help chosing what color to paint car. ( need photoshop)

Postby sleeper » Wed Oct 13, 2010 12:36 pm

Going to paint the car in a few days, ( inside and outside so color change is not a problem.)

But would like some ideas to what color i should chose..
the options are:

1: stock toyota super red like in the pictures
2: candy apple red
3: stock red or candy red up to right over the door handles and black over.
4: Stock red, but a little darker.

( if anyone can photoshop it for me it would be great.)

So what do you think? ( i will still have white rims, and kind of a rally style on it..)

Do red (stock or candy, your choice), but get the roof and A-pillars painted in gloss black. It looks good with your rear quarter panel design (similar to the 240sx). My bro did this on his 240sx and got nothing but compliments.

I think 165's look better in a solid color. The black roof doesn't flow right IMO. The problem is where the fender meets the a-pillar and door. A black roof makes the front end look taller than the doors and quarter panels because of the black window trim. Kind of hard to explain but it just doesn't work.

A true two-tone might work...I bet chip foose would do that to a 165 in a heartbeat. (too much overhaulin' :P )

I think the factory red looks good as is. I'd just repaint it the same color. Just my 2 cents.
