I am going to be respraying my 1997 EL GLi wagon but can not decide on the exact colour to use. The car is an ex cab and is currently white and with a full body kit consisting of modified Venom front bar, Toyota bonnet scoop, EB GT flares, EL GT skirts, custom rear bumper and modified ED xr sedan boot spoiler.

These are some crappy pictures of the car partially finished with the version 1.0 rear bar and different wheels but should help to visualise.

Also Do I stripe the car? Either old school GT stripes or BF FPV stripes?

I've always had a thing for the superoo style.

The sticker on the window will be going but it actually only appears to say taxi. The scop how ever will be staying as it is part of the induction setup that is basically a shaker although its not fitted yet

Go the taxi paint then start you own taxi service and let it pay for itself

I wish. There is only 400 odd people in the town I live in so I am told so not alot of need for a taxi service and the nearest towns I have seen taxis in are 60mins plus away. My biggest problem is trying to visualise the paint scheme as the checks need to go higher up the car due to the flares or I run the risk of them looking odd and miss shaped and I dont want to go over board on the paint.
