Colour and the elements

Postby mushroom_curry » Sun Mar 13, 2011 8:32 pm

Nonmetallic lighter colours (white, beige, pastel blue) while not being as sensitive to changes in light as metallic colours,
are totally the best way to go on a car you plan to keep indefinitely.

Rust showing up on say, a metallic black car, a metallic blue car, or even a deep non-metallic red, looks like utter crap.

I might go as far as saying a bit of dirt and rust on an older light colour car can look good if its not on the edges of panels (like a quarter panel over a wheel well)

Anyway just miss having a white car with awesome paint that looked great regardless of how damaged/clean or dirty/how many specs of surface rust were popping up!
