Blue is my favorite of the ones you showed, but I think that Black would look best. Your car is begging to be lowered by the way... :bigthumbu

Thanks man, actually im leaning toward yellow for some reason. My plans after i finish the front and repaint it, tint the taillights black, then get some spacers and lower it....i also have a 7th gen stock spoiler in the mail. Which i hope to receive this Wed. or Thurs....also right now im short on cash because ive been plagued with brake problems and those will be fixed soon too. :hehe:

The reason for putting a few colors up there, was so that i wouldnt have to hear a bunch of names of colors that i dont want to paint my car lol....please stick with the color choices above....thanks :cool:

P.S. Im not a fan of black, atleast on my own car.... :)

I think no one should ever attempt a Pink paint job. Only a rich girl can pull it off....Like something i would expect Paris hilton to do.

I would say Blue/yellow COMBO!

That's how I'm doing my celi.. prolly yellow accents, and blue base.

Here's my celi yellow, think it looks HOT!

Yeap i saw that in the Chops section. I love the way our celi's look in yellow. I dunno about the blue with yellow accents tho, it may look a bit ricey...

If you're looking for attention than go yellow. I'd personally go with a nice blue, it's still flashy but won't attract cops and haters as much. Red is nice but there's so many red Celicas already. Silver would be nice and durable, looked really clean on the guy that restored his 5th gen but it's kinda bland for a car that's gonna have a body kit, so scratch that. Go blue or yellow

It would look like a Subaru wannabe if you went with a blue and yellow combo.

whenever i see yellow i think of rice, i think it sticks out way to much in a bad way, and you would have to change your name to yello_fifthgen90(spelled yellow wrong on purpose)

Yes, all those yellow Corvettes, Lambos and Ferraris are such posers.

Meh, bright yellow's a classic sports car colour, but you don't see it every time you turn around. Starting out with white will help you there, as a darker colour won't pollute the yellow. Red's been done to death, silver is on two cars out of three these days, black's VERY difficult to maintain, and metallic blue is now the standard colour for sport imports.

Just please, if you go yellow, don't bother with the metallics -- then you would appear to be trying too hard.

Maybe ill just go with repainting it white again. Ill have to see about that one tho.

Go white with pearl then. Plain white is so bland, it's the easiest to maintain but it doesn't have a lot of shine compared to the other colors.

im not going pearl man.... it would just be white haha

dont do yellow so ricey, please do 350z orange or the dark blue nothing to stand out too much that says "look at me" screw that seriously.

Thats true i dont want anything that stands out, but blue isnt really one of main choices. i also dont want 350Z orange, talk about it standing out.....ive narrowed it down to prolly white or red...maybea two tone of white/black or white-red, and maybe white/grey///

Do NOT do 350z orange! Too many damn cars have that paint job, its such a big huge fad right now, then in the next 2 years when Nissan/Pontiac/Chevy decide not to paint their vehicles that anymore, you will think it looks like crap.

Go with a nice simple clean paintjob. I LOVE the 5th Gen White, its by far the nicest white from any of the celicas. I'd keep it white and maybe throw some pearl in there.

I dont think i could ever degrade myself and go with a :"fad" lol.... im not that type of person. I know im either staying white or going Red.... thats all i got for sure now....

I think you should just keep it white.

I think you should just keep it white.

I agree. White or some variant thereof (pearl, etc). For one, it would be the easiest repaint on a budget, because you wouldn't have to worry so much about the engine bay looking like crap, or getting all around your door sill, etc.


But then, I'm biased. I love my white celi, even with her dead paint.

^ white is the way to go... like diamond pearl white or super white

If you get any other color, it'll pretty much defeat the purpose of your username.

If the car was originally white, repaint it white. Trust me my GTS was white but the guy before me painted it silve. Kinda sucks having a different color engine bay. Ha BTW you know what? I just got done reading the other thread that got locked, I'm sorry but I think I started all the ruckus lol. Maybe I should have never pointed out the spoiler was hanging off a little. Maybe no one would have noticed. LMAO. /end of topic.

Keep the car white. White is a sleek color. Maybe I'm saying that because my car is white too.
