    Default New Paint colors.

    alright heres the deal im basically putting the z up on jackstands and doing a turbo build. once all the fabrication is done im going to do the interior and exterior to the full extent. my thought is to do something completely different (dont steal my idea lol). ive got 17" motegi mr7's and a wings west kit. the wheels are gonna be purple the sway bar is gonna be purple. the car and ww kit will be black, brake calipers purple. all silicone couplers are going to be purple. polished aluminum charge piping. purple turbo compressor housing purple valve cover. led dash purple, ok i think u guys get the idea.lol. thoughts comments sugesstions? pics of diff shades of purple would help. theres a color that rustoleum makes called grape this is what im leaning towards, but its not a high temp coating and i want it to last, also match and not be 20 diff shades of purple. powdercoating? anyone have experience with powder coat and costs involved? do most shops cut deals for large quantities of parts the same color? shop recommendations in the ct area? or anywhere. thanks in advance

    Minnesota Vikings Purple! You can get it from "House of Kolor" and a spray kit from Northern Tool or Harbor Freight cheap.

    Purps will be sick. A deeper hue, not too dark, but more on the black side. I want to do my bug in that color. It looks classy.

    I had to lol. The color you are doing is different for sure, but the wheels are the single most common type of wheel seen on many modded 4 cylinders.

    I would never do purple on my car, but to each their own.

    I had 2 Primewell tires up for sale with only a couple thousand miles on them. Ended up selling for $30 for the pair after no one bought them for awhile. Tires don't seem that easy to sell. Granted, Primewell tires aren't great quality, but they work. Maybe it would be easier if you had all 4 tires in decent shape.

    Anyways walk into your local paint store and ask to see their House Of Kolor catalogue.. they Should either have the old binder or new catalogue and that will show you what the people above me are refering to.. Or let them know what you are looking for and you can look threw chip books until you find something you fall in love with.. look at really new or really old colors for purples.

    Ah ok, I reread it and it makes more sense now. You should definitely get different wheels.

    Purple Car with Black Accents. Wheels black, WW Kit Black..etc.. I think that is a good idea. But Not sure about painting wheels purple?
