Like input the pike on the first post cheery or candy red with gold pearl rising sun, roll cage and suspension and the under side will be light gray stone guard . And I also like the look of 2 new Holden colours cloraphil green or perfidy blue but as we are building this for me and my misses so far its going red and gold as that's what we both Like lol

This is going to be the body colour, the close up of the sub frame show the colour as it will look in the sun (hopefully these parts dont see the sun tomuch)

with these bits red and the contole arms and struts gold what is every ones thoughts on painting the diff housing and drive shafts gold.
