Ok this is a serious thread im working on here :)

I am going to repaint my other is300

IT is gutted

IT is Red now

IT needs to change.

Im thinking two things here,

1 02 white with 02 red

2 02 red with 02 white on top portion of the car

3 02 white, with 01 blue on top of the car.

I am willing to pull the engine to paint the engine bay, this car will be used for show and some local racing 1/4 mile.

So what do you think, if i keep the red, then no engine bay work needed, but I want Blue on white, with a white engine bay and blue engine covers.

well tell me what you think.

01 pearl and hard to match later on, and not to mention not free because of the matching involved...


im liking the 02 white bottom portion of the car, and 01 blue on the top, then some white graphix on the blue and blue graphix on the white.

red stands out more....
if you want ppl to look, red is always 1st
can't help but look at a red car; esp. a phat one
if it's a show car (w/ some race). i would go w/ red w/ some white

(btw - i personally prefer blue + white though)

here is what we are going to do

Paint the engine bay black and the tranny birthing area black.

The rest of the car is going to be crystal white on 01 blue.

Where are you going to have a cut line?

I think at the cut line you should have a 3/4" white stripe 3/4" from the edge of the blue and do the same for the other side
so itll be like full blue, 3/4" white stripe, 3/4" blue stripe, full white...or full blue, 3/4" white, 3/4" blue, 3/4" white, 3/4" blue, full white

That would look nice. It would look nicer if you do MSM IMHO.

Dave, what does Kev think for the color? did he want white/blue also? Is that why he's so willing to pull the engine? Or are we doing black in the engine bay no matter what? I'm up for anything.

Also, for the night races we'll be doing, wouldn't red show up a little better? Might catch more eye's at shows too maybe. I'm sure you've thought of all this.

Let me know when you're ready to take the engine out, and I'll see about flying down.

I won't be on AIM tonight till late, just picked my tranny up from UPS, gunna be a long, rainy, windy, cold, shitty night. hahaha
