Hi guys, please have a quick look at the attached picture - its my xb coupe in primer at present and i'm having a really hard time trying to work out a colour for it.... I want it to have a colour that suits it and I was thinking silver at one point - unitil I just saw a silver xb coupe locally - lovely looking car but...I don't think silver suited it....I'd rather go for a light colour as the last one I painted black was a pain thru summer....a/c or not....

wadddya reckon??

Man that's a sweet car. MY best mate used to have an XA hardtop which was white, had a metallic blue bonnet and blue/orange stripework down the side. Looked absolutely insane :)

White?
Canary Yellow?

That's correct andrew. I believe there was also another paint scheme with green instead of blue? And the blue ones were some sort of dealer special...

Hehehe, either way... it didnt have a 302 in it by the time we were finished with it ;)

Ah yes, the mulberry silver combo looks good to. Trying to think, but theres someone on here with a black eb, possibly gt faker? Think so, he has one the same.

diamond white has always been a favorite of mine. Closely followed by emerald fire (I think it's called that) really nice green. Gotta be an original ford colour though. So many cars getting around in hothouse green and tiger gold now, I'd steer clear of the FAD colours.
p.s hope I haven't offended too many on my first post :D
