Iím not even going to throw my $.02 in because everything youíve done so far is amazing. Whatever you pick is going to look great Iím sure.

Nice photoshop skills by the way.

That pearl is beautiful.  Either way it's one hell of a neat build. Love the skill and detail.

If you decide to do a nice off white, I have a couple cans of 2k custom mixed for a Porsche Ivory White that was only used one or two years on the 356.  I'll have to check the years and paint code if you want, but they're sitting in a box and will likely never get used, if you think you'd use it you're welcome to have it.

Yeah, I'm so torn about colour. I'm thinking I'll get all the powder-coating done, see how it looks bare metal at that point, and then potentially paint if I think that'll work better. The decision may also be made for me if I can't get a good enough finish on the tank to go bare metal...

Well that's bloody nice offer mate, thank you! Is it this colour?



If so, that could look pretty damn awesome, and probably better than the pearl I was thinking... more of a flat ivory white (?) which could be very awesome. Whereabouts are you based? Postage may be an issue for paint?

Pretty sure coyote 13 is in the USofA - the postage would be a killer!

That Porsche colour is the bees knees ...

I'd go with the pearl, off-white, or ivory...once it gets some patina it would really lend itself to the style of this machine.

Hey Noddy that's the right paint color but Stroker is right, I am in the good ole US of A.  Might be an issue shipping... I'm not even sure what the regs are on shipping aerosol overseas.

Yeah, damn that white is the tits. But I'm almost entirely certain posting aerosols is a big no-no at this end at least! Thanks for the offer though mate, it has brought up a better colour than what I was thinking... decisions, decisions!
