Whats the nicest colour Altezza?

Postby DeeSmurf » Thu Jun 21, 2012 10:40 am

Right, so I have a new bumper on the way and have to get it sprayed. Gettin the side skirts an all tidied up too and the lights done and the wheels refurbed. So now I'm thinking of goin the whole hog and spraying the whole car, save the possibility of shade differences throughout the car. Now at the mo I'm wanting to keep the car white....BUT I'm just thinking, if I'm spraying the lot, there's nothing stopping me changing the colour completely!

SO...as above.... What is your opinion on the nicest colour for a tezz?

:D

pearl white isn't what its cracked up to be in my opinion.if you park a white altezza beside a pearl white altezza with both polished,i think the white looks better.just my opinion.
I seen a candy apple red altezza on here before and it looked well.but if your changing colour wont it cost a lot more.you'll have to do door sills engine bay and anywhere the original paint is.
If its not all done in the new colour it would look wrong in my head.

Yea I'm not 100% on the pearl white myself, and if I was to change colour it would be done right! I'm a perfectionist and any wee bits remaining would do my head in lol...would cost 400-500 more to go a different colour. I love my car white but I'm just putting it out there to see if anything changes my mind

Hard to say without seeing you're car, the red looks good, always liked the risky devil car.
