    washed and waxed my car today when i had a lil down time at work , stood back and notices a lil ding or scratch on pritty much every panel . decided to paint the lot in the next few weeks . being a painter makes this cheap n easy had lots of ideas but nothing that jumps out and says yer thats the colour for me .

    just after input and ideas see if you guys and girls have thort of a effect or shade that would improve the lines and shape as i work with a 4x4 weekend green laner and his idea was matt nato green lol .

    if anyone says pink al poke u in the eye !

    could do a much better effect with jet black base n just dust over a red violet or blue pearl would be ten times as funky in the sun

    Kawasaki green would be mental ! Always loved nogaro blue, but something different like the newer audi or landrover aubergine would look great.

    Renault Liquid yellow, BMW Sepang bronze, Alfa Romeo Nuvola blue/Lava red? I'm assuming a matt red would be a ***** to look after.
