Default New color

I have a 95 se and it is cherry red at the moment, I'm wanting it painted, I'm thinking either the electric blue color GP'* GA'* and Gseries had, maybe a yellow or possibly some shade of geen like the slime type green that the new Camaro'* have. which one if any would stand out from the road but still look good and not like a tacky color

Since your car is already red, I wouldnt do a complete color change unless you really want to. Much more $$.

With that being said, you could stay with the red and add orange pearl.



just my 2 cents..

the only other color i could see being done easily is the abovee stated and Black as if you rough your red up unough it would act as a primer in sense maybe needng some actual primer in certain spots....
