    Ford Focus Orange would be outrageous - but obsolutely perfect IMHO - would accentuate all those radical curves and angles - can just imagine that sitting out in the sun !

    Saw a modern car, think it was a Mazda in nice bright metalic green the other day. That would look good on an Elky, thogh I do have a soft spot for orange too.

    I take it all back! It looks like your body was just as much of a nightmare to sort out as mine!
    Looking good. Hard to think of a colour that wont look good on one of these.

    Great car & build Know all about full resto body off, mines been 5 years !

    Cant beat an orange car
    Ford Focus is a bit wishy washy on a big car, go a bit darker like Hugger Orange & it'll be the mutts nutts, IMHO (but I may be biased )
