Still time to change the colour

    Recommended Posts

    I'm doing the last of the sanding on the primer of the 77/280 and will be starting paint within the next couple of weeks. The car is going back together completely stock and the original paint code is 305 Light Blue with a white interior which is okay I guess, but I really like code 307 Pacific Blue.   If I was keeping the car I would go with 307 but like every project this car will be up for sale pretty soon after completion. 

    So, do I go with the original colour 305 or go with what I think is a more popular and saleable colour 307?  Or maybe I'm over thinking it.

    305 is more sophisticated and is very "Italian Cool"

     

    btw I know blue!

    I like the 307 better. Since there are no records, only a few of us will know. :ph34r:

    I have had a couple of #305s, have one now, but none with white interior.  The only one I've ever seen was at ZCON.  An RHD Eiji had.

    If it were mine I'd go darker, #307.

    That pic is a good argument for 305 IMO (minus the fingers 😲😲😲)

    Alright, that makes it easy,  going with the original colour 305, don't want anyone thinking I'm trying pull a fast one.  I'll save the 307 for another project.

    Thanks all
