I thought I'd throw up a pic of the car before it's resprayed in about 6 days. I think i'm gonna go with the original yellow but we'll see.

I'd do some kinda purple.

Maybe my favourite color ever:

VW Dusty Mauve LC5P, pretty desaturated purple metallic that almost looks like dark grey depending on the lighting, AWESOME color:

Really hard to capture in pictures though.

I'd say a cream white leave wheels as is...

But with a white car you can choose any wheel color really.

You can still do Dusty Mauve. :D

A guy I know bought a dusty mauve mk3 as a beater and just sanded it flat:

What about going for the murdered out style.

Satin/matte black car, with black wheels too but leaving the lips of the wheels polished! And smoked lights all round and maybe polished mirror's and front bumper/fender ;)

A trick I found out recently is if you spray a base clear job without the clear, using a newer paint (like for .. say a wrx ) itl come out satin and stay that way. The draw is that youd get a sweet satin paint job in a modern color, they do it on alot of retro rods.

I say white and leave the wheels gold but I am slightly biased.

The blue in the OP is the best option IMO, second is Dr. Ak's suggestion of flat purple.

With a car as cool as that I don't think you could go wrong with any color.

You could always go uber classy and do like a Lexus pearl white. That would probably be REALLY expensive though.

Stolzy

we'll see. turns out I may not be spraying it till december as I leave for school in a week and it'd be a rush to get anything done...we'll see
