Rally Car Paint Scheme

Postby luke77 » Mon Dec 13, 2010 6:28 am

Hey guys and gals,

I am trying to come up with a paint scheme for my GK Rally Car. It is nearly time to get it to the paint shop but I am still undecided on what paint scheme to use :banh: . I need to keep it fairly simple for ease of repairs as the cars get knocked around a fair bit. I was thinking something along the lines of the factory EX2000 Lancer scheme (see pic below) but using a brighter yellow and having a larger black border to the yellow or replacing the yellow with a Kawasaki green. Any suggestions?

I like that paint job as it is, maybe a thicker black line but not green.

I think red replacing the orange would be better.

Depends on the green really? It would have to be lime green I think?

Any colour would look Ok (just about anyway?).

I'd lose the colour off the wheel arches though, it just doesn't look right.
Needs white wheels with that scheme too.

Ive got an LC lancer and was also looking for a colour scheme to do, i was actually thinking of an RT charger style (works better for me being a 2door hatch back, similar shape to chargers) for my paint.......undecided on colours atm but car in pieces and paint isnt a big deal to me. Ide rather make it go than look good, but yours definately looks good....love the cage too.

Paint scheme was fairly simple, much like me!!!!!

I lke the RT idea but without the vertical strip on the frt guard, in orange/black but with a more pronounced side marking........

I completely agree with the making it go better than look good, luckily I have a mate whos a painter so having it do both will be a nice balance, i've just got to be able to drive the bugger.

Mine was painted in industrial 2 pack which is nice and strong and sticks like shit to a blanket

Ok...going for a slight deviation for my LC now, black for rear half of car (and with surge tank and all) may be a little too toasty new paint job hard to describe so will show pics when its done...but basically white with a bit of red.

Now I need to come up with a scheme for my GC galant, any opinions? I'm thinking this orange/white scheme but its not a rally car so thinking I should probably just go one solid cover......
