Color choices........can't decide for sure

Well the 931 goes to the paint shop tomorrow. Currently looks like this except it has the side skirts on and no hatch.


Now, I need to decide for sure on a color. I was thinking about bright silver. However a darker charcoal metallic has been floating around in my head lately. Which would look better silver or charcoal?........Must decide in the next few days..

in all honesty, I'd either paint it flat black OR make the entire car match the front driver's fender and clearcoat it. That boondo/bodywork pattern would look slick plastered all over the car...lol.

Actually, there is no bondo in the front fenders. Just about 5 different colored layers of paint, some of which look like they were applied with a brush...or maybe a trowel.

That's one way of getting extra passenger space, but I sure wouldn't like to travel far sat on that thing in full view of the world!!

for what it's worth, i'd go with a two tone paint job of silver on top and charcoal grey underneath... don't know why, i think it would suit the 931

Does it have to be an original porker colour? I've saw a refurb'd mustang in the 2003/4 Merc (SL)Bright Silver the other day and that looked amazing. If its got to be a porsche colour then I prefer dark charcoal................... (Flaming pink is another cracker though!)
