  • Color change?

    Finally got the car in for the respray, My question is do I keep it the stock color (white), or change it. I picked out a dark pearl grey back in December when I first picked the car up. I am going to keep the car nearly stock, but I did changed the seats to Miata ones, but thats it. When I got the car it was in primer, with most parts missing. Just looking for input, Not worried about resale value

    I've always liked the look of dark grey cars. My Mustang GT is the tungsten grey metallic color. I changed the color of my TR from emerald green to signal red and really like the look. So....I vote for a color change. I have a 74 TR6 also that is white but will probably be changed to jasmine.....because "my wifes old boyfriend had one that color"🙄

      Whatever you do, don't paint it with a pearlesenet (sic) color. Generally looks like hell. IMHO

        I beg my boss every year for a pearl white Silverado, but I can't visualize the pearl grey black. Do you have any pics of other cars with pearl grey? But I am all for color changes. If you like it, do it.

        Just googled Black Pearl grey. Color is awesome, not sure about the pearl part though. Each his own. How about with black or ghost racing stripes?

          It's not about JUST the outer body panels.
          For success, the engine bay, door sills & posts, and inner boot panels need matching paint.
          If you can support this additional expense, go for it.

            I agree with Walt FWIW. Color change is a fine thing (especially if resale isn't a big priority) but it has to be a complete color change. Dark grey with white engine, trunk, jams, etc would be...weird IMHO.

              I have stripped the car down to the bones, windshield is off engine out. The rats had eaten all the wires, carpets and most of the card. So if I do a color change when everything goes back you will never know. I hope

                If you are not concerned with resale, then go for it. It's your car so do what makes you feel good.

                      Okay, been thinking I should stay with white. Can it be any white or can someone give me the paint code to pass on to my painter

                      I've been following this thread....and of course everyone has an opinion. Glad to hear you are keeping an original color. I do believe our cars look best in a solid color.

                        What about a slight change to the original theme. Old English White (MG) or Wimbledon White (early Ford Mustang). Both are a creamier version of the original.

                          I was thinking to change the white, may just tell the painter to do what ever white would look best. My Dad told me to go with a Old English white, he also wanted that on a MGB

                            I think that would be a great color on the 6, I always thought Triumph New White was a bit too harsh.
