Colour coding my MR2 - opinions 1 Year, 10 Months ago Karma: 46
Hi folks,

My MR2 is after getting an NCT fail as regards the passenger side sill for rust.
Luckily the rust in minor and I know a very good body work expert in my area who will handle the sill repair with ease. Besides I knew this work was going to be require someday.

So long story short. I will have to respray the sills of the car.

While I have this chance I was considering removing the black from the sides and 100% colour coding the car. That would most likely be red front lip, side sills, and rear spats.

Do folks think this would look better or should I keep the REV 1 style black stripe?

The car as it stands - red and black scheme

Rear

Front

Side

Proposed - colour coded lip, sills, & spats:

I probably prefer colour coded myself. But I just wanted to see what other folks thought.
While I'm getting the paint mixed up it makes a lot of sense to do all the paint jobs in one go.
