Default Need some ideas for paint.

Hi,

I have a '75 with sidepipes that I want to get some new paint on and need some input or ideas for the paint.
There aren't many corvette's here so it's hard to get an idea how a color will go on this car

I was thinking of Blue with white rally stripes (I believe BenUKhas one like this) or maybe Laguna grey with black rally stripe (single or double).

Let me hear what you think and if somebody has examples...

Thanks

Color choice can make a huge difference. This is my before and after pic's.


Funny you should mention race stripe....my car is at the painters right now getting a Pewter color stripe...single stripe with a line on ea. side.

Paint makes a big difference but some will hate what others love you need to pic what YOU want an go with it b/c it is your car. That said I love anything but white. For me the only white vette is the c1. Dennis that car beautiful


As far as stripes I think they do allot for these cars IMO a vette needs a good set of stripes

Someone once told me that stripes aren`t really stripes unless they go somewhere or end somewhere, otherwise they are just some lines drawn on a car. And the black is beautiful I love it

Thanks for the great photo's and the black makes indeed a big difference for that car... wow

Well I am leaning towards Lexus Spectra Blue mika for the car with white race stripe's, (maybe even the ducati pearl white)
