hey guys. just askin for some personal opinions on colours for my EA fairmont, and whether i should take off side plastic strips or paint over them. (the silver strip is sh*tty) I was thinkin black but i dont wanna spend each weekend gettin the dust off it. I was also gonna get the BF GTP wheels 18" (copy). Here's a couple of photoshop jobs i did.

ohhh that sounds sweettt. definitely somethin different. im starting to think the cobalt. theres a fella round my town with 2tone like the commy calais. red over silver/grey (didnt get a good look). surprisingly looks good. but if it wasnt sittin low would prolly look sh*thouse?!

Regency Red is a really classy looking colour, i reckon that'd look alright. Just paint the moulding body coloured too.

Good to hear.

Make sure you get every single dent out, no matter how small. black shows all.
