Decisions Decisions So many colors

Im a little ways off from paint, but its never to early to start planing. I want to keep the main body factory Irish Green but i want it to have a rally/road track look. So i decided to paint the bumpers, bonnet and engine lid.


Here is how she sits now


Mine is a Targa but here are a few coupe renderings to try out some colors.
Orange

Gold

Bronze

black

I think i have made my mind up that this is the color for the wheels no mater what color i do the car



I tried blue and red with the car but didnt like it at all. I now green and yellow traditionally go together but it reminded me of the mellow yellow stock cars from the 80s
I welcome any other color suggestions

ditto on the Irish green. You can achieve your rallye look with some nice decals. A couple of gold racing stipes would compliment the color combo you are looking for. love what you are doing!

It's a little hard to tell from your renderings, but if your planned front and rear bumpers are fiberglass, how about painting the entire car and original bumpers Irish green, paint your fiberglass bumpers any color you wish. You could use a black wrap on hood and decklid. Gives you plently of options.
