I'm a sucker for fine to semi-medium mettalic paints myself. not a fan of the plain colors, they just dont do it for me. again, if i had the right car, i would have no problem spending around 10g's on a paint job. if i had the money that is :p

I actually like the color on your car. What color is that, btw, I want to say purple but it looks like maroon. A color like that is just begging some some metallic flake to spice it up a bit. Or some pearl ;)

But if you hafta go with another color- I'd have to say blood red (aka not 'pull me over red' :p) or some blue variation since a 'black' variant would be out of the question.

However I have always been partial to Amethyst,Pearl White, and midnight purple :D

I'm not exactly sure how much adding metallic flake or a pearl mix would be, but I plan on finding out b/c its almost time for me to get mine repainted. Like yourself I've been having problems figuring out what color to have: leave the car black with a touch of silver flake, sandstorm grey, or some purple variant (maybe the midnight purple off the R33).

My father got his Z32 painted from the stock grey to a blue pearl at maaco for $1300 (750 just for the paint). That included the exterior (also a new front bumper) and all the jams. Usually I wouldn't let them touch my car, but after seeing how well is was done- and seeing as how my car is a DD (not some true show car) I don't see a reason in going to the shop that did my old car (with that chameleon paintjob).


Gumetal would look hot, but would be tighter with some bronze rims or with a polished lip. The grey/black, black/black seems to be overdone these days. Flip the game a little. ;)


I'd just check out a few local shops and see how much they'd charge. My guess is that they would probably add a few more coats to yours and add the pearl or flake in that, shouldn't be too much.

ok the best colors for the 200sx/sentra are as follows:
dark forest green
timber frost green (refer to myoungs car for color)
light metal flake/small flakes subaru blue
black <haha but seriously there is nothing better than a well kept black car...nothing)
anthrecite grey/gun metal
silver
maxima gold
__________
these were in no specific order just a list of all the colors i would consider for my car. i think it would help to tell you i HATE flashy things....the more it blends in the better but then add alittle flare just to make it stand out from the crowd just a hair, were you want your self to stand out is under the hood. there is nothing cooler than a slightly modded exterior/interior (mostly just a stock upgrade like leather seats and a lip spoiler) then open that hood and BLAH DOW!
