I love the 993 but I also love the color, what do you think

the color choice is narrowed down to blue/white/creme

Cheers Phil

GO PINK

After your wife kills you she will not have to repaint it.

Look at the money you will save.

Cream=Old English White yep I vote for that.

Checked with Miss Agatha and she says that's ok with her as well.

Your car so its your choice.
I personally think red and OEW are over done. Choose a color that you like and go for it.

I actually agree even though Ms Triss is OEW - your car needs some splash but I'm not sure about that specific blue.

looking here

https://www.teglerizer.com/mgcolors/index.html

and loving the Blue Royale, Midnight Blue, Basilica Blue, Mineral Blue range although the clipper blue and the iris blue are nice as well.

I can also see you going with a national racing team livery - Bleu de France actually or Cunningham Stripes - though I' go white with blue stripes since blue with white stripes is too much cobra colours.

Just thinking - another route to go would be to paint the car in one of the original racing team colors - sebring sprite or speedwell sprite

Interesting colors, still leaning towards old english white or riviera blue.

My Robins top and tonneau are being fitted today. Can hardly wait to see the result, cost a fortune.

So the short list is getting shorter

Things to do before body and paint.

! .Install RX 7 rear end/rear disc brakes with LSD , plus wilwood calipers. Hope to have the axle back next week.
2. Finish hardwood flooring, I am up to 900 sq feet only 700 to go
Thats it , I am running out of excuses

Picking the color is the hardest part of LBC ownership, because when it is done it is done, only doing this once.

BTW Mark and I think you need to put off painting and get fuel injection. <<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/grin.gif

My Sprite is Iris Blue (original color) and I really like it. It's quite an unusual color to see on a car and always gets comments on the color. Riviera Blue is also nice.

I think this link has more accurate colors than the teglerizer site: https://www.tcpglobal.com/aclchip.aspx?image=1965-ahmg-pg01.jpg

Iris Blue is one of my favorite Sprite colors. That's a very pretty '65 you have there.

I really dig the new hugger (or is it grabber) orange Ford uses on the Parnelli Jones Mustang GT.

The prettiest shade of blue I've ever seen is Chrysler's B5 blue. Pics on the web don't do it justice at all. You HAVE to see it in person. I love it and I HATE blue. ( had too many blue cars already.)
