Paintjob?

Hi

I has a 1997 5th gen 'Lude and it's a kinda dull color, it's the silver one. Anyone has any good suggestion for a nice color?

Re: Paintjob?

You gonna paint it 100% or just the outside?
100% i'd say a crazy shade of white. Maybe red, even a purple/silver. If just the outside you pick a color that looks cool with silver accents. Say a dark dark gray. When you open the hood, doors and trunk the slight contrast would look stellar imo.

Re: Paintjob?

Yeah, i've been thinking about white. It really shows the characteristics of the car. A really dark gray would also be awesome. I've also seen some pictures of preludes with "Eletric Blue", they look nice at the pictures but i don't know how they look like irl.

Re: Paintjob?

Anything!! haha I'm sorry in advance.. but I hate silver. It's such a boring color IMO..

I've been seeing a lot of white ludes lately and they've really been catching my eye. I'd say go with white!

Re: Paintjob?

White 5th gens are beautiful. Blue is also a great option, but much more of an eye catcher if that's what you like. Those would be my two choices.

Re: Paintjob?

Yellow! With black pin stripes. There's a yellow 3rd near my home that looks cool as a cuccumber.
3rd gen yellow would be dandy.
