Ok so the time has come to paint the car and I'm finding it very hard to choose the right colour and if I do find a picture I like almost impossible to found out what colour or paint code it is !!

Looking for members who DO know what colour their car is painted to help with Photos and Paint codes

I am looking for Blue with white stripe cars only as I have at least made that decision :-)

Thanks in Advance - Ant

Interesting website. Just be putting in various searches from the homepage, such as "Guardsman" or "Shelby". I couldn't find any Cobra images but plenty of Mustangs etc which might give you a reasonable idea of what the colour looks like.

So... you DID use my colour! Isn't it great? Lots of changes depending on the available light. No stripes on mine, but yours do look good.

Egbert : yes used that colour and I'm mega pleased , thanks for the help , which I do believe this forum is for , as most of the time it's like a bunch of old woman bitching their own opinion and forgetting that for most forum members they are building the car of their dreams . So if it's blue with white stripes and cream interior so be it ...
also the interior in mine is going to be cream (garyjettrike)

British Racing Green looks good on a Cobra especially on wire wheels, like 47 Cob in Brian Labans' book, if I was building my own I think it would end up BRG. Might go with some off white stripes or perhaps not. There are some super looking Blues in the pictures in this thread though, some of the paint jobs look fabulous. I do like that very Electric Blue you see some of the current ford models in like the Focus RS or ST or whatever they are these days, very eye catching colour.

sory didn't mean to upset any one and like you say it's up to the builder what colour he paints it and blue cars with white stripes and cream lnterior have supplied me with a very good living for the past 33 years

Best colour combo (Blue/white) by far, who cares about being different when it looks this good! Lol, for your info the colour is Fiat/Lancia Magnetic/Electric Blue (5PBCB) Dare I say, people are attracted and stunned by the colour! ;) Hope the link below works for you as Gallery does not work, and I cant post pics!

Reading comments about the mclaren volcano orange it comes over a a right pain. Not your normal paint and cannot be touched up. Nice colour but find something similar.

12-06-16, 01:59 PM
Thanks Andy, I have heard similar things, I'm waiting for SMS to make me a sample, I'm basically looking for a really red-orange colour, the lambo aventador colour also comes close to what I want. My opinion is its not going to be a subtle car so why go for a subtle colour. I'm very much down the route of I'm building my dream car so will do it how I want it.
