    Help me decide paint color

    Hello everyone.

    I need help in deciding what paint would look the best on my MarkII.
    I would like to keep as close to oldschool Japanese car color as possible.


    I have 2 colors in mind, Maybe I am not not looking at all the choices.

    1. Pontiac G8 orange
    2. Original MarkII green

    I really want to stay away from Silvers, Black,Dark Blues.

    Definitely keep the green. My reasons:

    1. It's the original color. It will preserve the value and originality of a rare car.
    2. There are too many orange cars out there. TE27s, Celicas, Zs, 510s.... I love orange, but we need some variety in the magazine
    3. That green is already a bad-ass old school color!

    I love that green. If you really want to trick it up, maybe add a gold pearl to the green? 8)

    When it comes to paint, I'm a purist... I say stick to the original color!

    markII

    Good because I like the green color as well and was thinking of maybe making it a little deeper that stands out a little better.

    I value your opinion and will keep it green

    I have to go with the green as well. Original is the way to my heart

    btw, i'm a noob and voted for 1 by accident, so subtract 1 from #1 and add 1 to #2 ops:
