if you can afford it, i definately recommend getting a custom color repaint.or at least a color that does not come stock with a celica thumbsup

black is a very nice color, but it is also very hard to see details with black thumbsup

i like a lot of candy colors also, such as candy red or candy orange, gunmetal, or a midnight blue. the autoshop your car is in should have a color chart...it's a very good idea to take a lot of time and look at it. a lot of colors you may have never even thought about (or even knew existed) are there and it can give you a better feel of what you think is the best way to go for your car thumbsup

yea i can afford the paint job.. black does seem nice, but white is also clean that why i'm stuck with either white, black or midnight blue. i don't want any original white or black paint you know.. and i just want my car to look nice because i'm thinking of putting a kaminari kit on.

definitley take your time and look over the color charts that your body shop can provide. obviously this is a decision you have to stick with for a while unless your loaded out your ass. my advise would be to go with a custom color, such as a candy or pearl.

why not buy the body kit first before you do a total repaint?

just my 2 cents worth thumbsup

thanks for the suggestion guys.. After a talk with one of my friend, she said I was to obsess with white hahaha.. Yea I think i was too. First it was super white, then championship white and I was thinking the NSX white. Now when I think of it Candy Red does look nice or the NSX blue would look nice too.. Does anyone have any nice paint job. I would like to find out more nice looking color beside white and black.

Looking back at the colors I think i might go with the Grand Prix white.. Do you guys think it would look nice on the celly? Candy Red is also nice but it doesn't look as nice as white. Candy Orange seem a little ricey but it looks nice though. Black I love, but it get dirty quick haha.. Damn!

OR, if you really have money, get a sand blasted paintjob, makes your car look like it's made of suede, it's HOT thumbsup

to change the color of the car is really expensive, you're looking in the ballpark of at a minimum of 2500 if done by proffessionals and not maaco. but definately worth every penny. thumbsup

well thx for all the advices haha.. yea i'm getting it done by a professional. Hooked up because I know the owner of the company haha.. Well he's planning to do a custom white paint color. white as white can be, we'll see how it turn out. If I don't like it, I'll probably think about changing it later when I'm completely done with my exterior mod.
