I wouldnt recomend going to far off the original color unless you feel like painting all the jams and under the hood two to have it look right, also im pretty sure that the color on jims car is the same as on the GXP'* WA800J if im not mistaken (Jim can you confirm?) i think the color that was on Gonnvilles old SSEi would look sweet on there (that color really makes the body lines stand out very nicely...just a thought though


this desion is yours and yours alone to make

The GXP white is the same as the Caddys. It has more tints in it, kind of like a mother of pearl or something. EDIT: White Gold Tricoat. His is a tricoat but different and more subtle. Both are sweet colors. I have definitely thought about the door jams and the engine bay color. I know that it would look bad if I didn't get those painted. At the very least, everything would be painted except for the engine bay (strut towers areas and other visible areas). But I could always think of something to fix that.

The color I am most thinking of going with would be pretty similar to the color it is now too, and is actually low on votes I know what I like, but I am curious to other'* opinions. I'll be the one to choose my color.

I'd rather take the car! That color is nice. Hard to picture on my car though.
