So I'm gonna be painting my shell at some point in my build, it's a bare shell rebuild so have the option of any colour. Which has been one of the hardest choices so far!

If you had the choice would you go for a stand out colour that was bright and different or go with something more standard in fear of not being able to pull a new colour off!

Any pictures of starlets painted non standard colours?

Myself with a black SR i would keep it stock colour, just because it was the only UK starlet available in black.

If i had another car/model id be willing to change, especially with some of the colours that modern cars are coming with. Im actually quite a fan of the new focus RS blue

I love mine in yellow, I don't think I'd have it any other colour!

I did see a new Merc not so long back in a darky grey it did look very nice. There is a new Ford in like a electric blue colour that looks pretty good to. The old saxo's had a nice moonstone blue. The wheels you choose are just as important to make it pop

I am finding it pretty difficult! I spot smart colours as standard on other makes but just think it would look daft on the Starlet haha and keep changing back to a white or grey that I know will work

Ive seen one in a sort of Cadbury purple which was nice, also vauxhall arden blue is another nice colour. If I wanted to do something new, Id go with Abarth primer grey, something about those matte pale greys I love.
