a light cream like polar white, or silver or black
when all else fails, rivets, cable ties and bodge tape will see you through

Jamaican Yellow is the best hatch colour by a mile i reckon especially with blacked out windows. 'twas the colour of my first Chevette hatch, which got scrapped, and will be the colour of my present hatch when i can afford to get it sprayed.

The post above is my own personal opinion, it is not meant to upset or cause offence, if it does bugger off.

Yeah thats a great idea Neily, your car will look superb like that and it cuts down on the amount of work you need to do on it as 'ratty' goes with the whole look quite nicely...in fact you needn't necessarily bother with the engine as it's more about the look than whether it goes anywhere or how it does so... stick a roof-rack on the top, some things purporting to be ex-army helmets in the back and muchos camo-netting = job done :D

I reckon you should spray it Yellow.

Yellow is the best colour for cars :D

(Not that I'm biased ;) )

EDIT: all windows blacked out or rear windows mirrored.

I'd do it all in one colour personally.

But maybe with some black detailing :)

Once colour definitely - or possibly 2 colours seperated by side-mouldings, howabout yellow and black?

Not multicolour though (like this):

There was a yellow chevette on ebay a few months back with blacked out windows and chrome wheels - it didn't sell three times of asking, can't possibly imagine why..........

........could have had something to do with looking bloody awful though!

How about a nice turquoise blue paint, with a purple flip like they used on the last TVR Tuscan?

In my one hand I have english to estonia dictionary, in the other estonia to english, I'm typing with my nose. It takes me some time to reply. :D

I looked at Compomotive ML wheels. Front 7"x13" and rear 10"x13". Is it too much? :?

EDIT: and AVON tires.
