AE111 Levin Colour Poll

Postby _Matt » Mon Nov 18, 2013 10:59 pm

Getting my Levin resprayed in about a week and finding it hard to choose whether to paint it Gunmetal grey or the current/factory colour, metallic black.

EDIT: Forgot to add I won't be painting around the door jams/engine bay etc.

If it's gunmetal it will most likely be one of these:
Ferrari Grigio Silverston
Lamborghini Grigio Avlon
Supra Anthracite Metallic 1A1
Skyline Dark Grey KN6
BMW Sparkling Graphite Grey
IS300 Graphite Grey Pearl Metallic 1C6
Corvette Cyber Grey Metallic 57U

id say gunmetal as there are plenty of black ones about, at least down here there is

My one was black, before the previous owner painted it in that AU Falcon Cobalt blue, damn it looked good on the AE111 haha

One of the hates I have is cars that have been resprayed a different color,
but have not done the door shuts and under bonnet etc,
I believe it would devalue the car,
so I say go original.

+1 for factory respray. My vote would be gunmetal if doing full respray though.

i dont mind a car that was originally black being resprayed, black engine bay etc doesnt look out of place
but not doing door jams and inside fuel flap etc is just horrible, its not much extra work

I've owned two black cars - would never own another one unless I had time to wash it everyday.

You need to start another poll, asking people whether or not you should paint the door jambs etc.

If you arent, them Im with Matt, keep it factory.
