What about a dark green? or is it not flashy enough?

Evan's car is dark green. I'm trying to stay away from blue/green cause it's done a lot.

So the silver/gray seems to be a crowd favorite. Any reason why?

I like the fuschia/purple idea. That with black roof trunk hood would look good IMO.

I think the Gray/Silver idea is popular because your car is a stock body with stock Nissan wheels. So it wouldn't be too flashy but it would still make people look since they only offered gray in 1 year for the s14.

It's rare, and boring. rabbit

Color is SO personal man. I also found that I changed my mind hourly until I bought the paint. I chose the color the night before it was time to shoot base.

I would vote black with gold pearl over it. Something nuts like that and really custom beyond base clear. My car has a TON of pearl in the paint and that's why I love the color. IMO go totally custom and don't be afraid to do something different. I saw a photo of a house of kolor brown with gold pearl and it was beautiful.

For the most part, off the shelf colors are just the tip of the iceberg if you're looking to make a statement.

How about a greddy front lip? Anyway, I'd stay red but a different red. Maybe add pearl in it?

I agree 110%

Unless you absolutely LOVE a factory color start going through paint chip books. There is some seriously awesome colors out there today.

I like the dark purple with black roof idea but with some baller wheels (not stanced tho). Leave it stock body no rolled/pulled fenders no lips and shave the factory spoiler maybe some kouki side skirts.

I did the project 370z challenge a few months ago. The 240z was painted "tangelo" orange. Its an amazing orange. Check that out. I'm pretty sure its a house of kolor color

That is a nice color. I could even see going just a bit darker too.
