WOW! So many good suggestions!! you're right, the mulberry looks sweet tho just lately I'm thinking of going back to its original factory colour which is red pepper... whoever made the mad max references made me smile... my xa coupe I had for years , I did put a genuine monza front on that - get this, I scored an original monza front, 2 front xb guards modified to fit with the front, all in steel, plus an xb gt/gs bonnet for... drumroll please......$50 !!! that was 15 years ago and I still can't get over what a bargain it was... pity I don't still have it.....

I am undecided on what colour to suggest. I love these three most.
1. Sherwood/Emerald green with gold pin stripping
2. Mulberry with the silver decal
3. Blue with silver decal

All colours are from various XB's that my dad has owned over the years. I just have to find the slides and down load them to be admired :)

Mate, Sooooo many colours to choose from.
Red pepper is nice with black bits.
Orange with brown outs.
Emerald fire (yes correct colour) with Silver..

Prob a good idea to do the rounds around the GT web pages and the GT nationals pics. There will be every colour known to man there to help you choose. I am partial to the original red pepper cos its nice and thats the original colour, or Emerald fire with silver. (cos I owned a XB GT sedan in that colour so I am biased..)
Good luck
