My uncle is a very good panel beat/spray painter and am seriously considering asking him to respray my whole car. I just have no idea what color to pick and its a pretty big decision. I was leaning towards one of the new BF colors either Deja Vu, Shockwave or Obsession but I dont know because quite alot of colors dont look good on EF/ELs. I love the look of regency red on an EL fairy but I want something non factory.

I think Ego would look good, and should be good against the chrome bits. But if you black would be a reliable choice, always good against chrome.

I dont think that black suits the EL very well to be honest. I saw one the other and its a bastard to keep clean (not that ego will be much better) How do I go about getting my grill rechromed because its starting to peel a little bit. Is it easier to buy another one.

...I say black...black looks awesome IMO...well it looks good on Dave's car (EL XR8)

I would go with black if I had the money to get a whole respray paint.

Its not very creative picking a colour from a newer model. Why not pick a colour off a completely different make? or a custom colour? Everyone paints their cars the same old BA/BF colours.
