    if you fell like it.


    I just purchased a set of Breyton Imagine knock offs.
    They are currently a satin silver color, but I want to change that.

    This is a quick Photoshop of some of the plans and what they would look like.

    The colors I am looking at are:
    1. GM Daytona Sunset Orange Metallic (pearl) (2007)

    2. Plymout Prowler Orange Pearl (2001)

    3. Pontiac Sunset Orange Metallic (2001)

    I am also open to other suggestions, possibly darker than the colors I have shown.
    Thanks

    I'm voting for choice three. Definitely go with something lighter than your photoshop.

    Durango copper is interesting. I can only find a couple of pictures of it w/ google, and it seems to varry in how orange it is vs/ burnt/brown.

    The nissan color is a too orange for my taste. Thanks for the idea though.
    I have looked at the Infiniti FX35 color orange though as well.

    Love the R32 (2002?), but I have an honest question:

    Why go through all the trouble of lowering you car then attaching a huge-a** sail of a roof rack on it?

    it is actually a 2003 GTI 1.8t

    I had just gotten back from an 8000 mile drive from NC to CA and back, and I had luggage on the roof for most of the trip. The rack is only on the car about 10-15 days total out of the year on average. That trip was the exception.

    The car is actually on air, and I hae 6'' of height adjustment at the push of a button.
    It will go from tucking the rim under the fender, to me being able to stick my fist between the fender and tire.


    When I got to California

    I taped a map to the hood, and did an Indiana Jones style cronicle of my journey.

    Preliminary looks good. I like the copper colors myself like what is on 'Bad Penny' Yours looks real close.

    Sorry, got to this thread too late it seems. My favorite color in the scheme your looking at is Lucifer Orange. It's a Triumph motorcycle color and it is the bomb.
