Welcome Chilli
Some ideas about color for you depending on how straight the body (or your body work) is. Black shows EVERYTHING, and white the least. The darker the color, the more things show. With that being said, make yourself happy with your color choice because you live with it, not us. Good luck. Remember, we like questions and pictures here.

hi mike
bodywork isnt great but it will be when it comes to putting the colour down
im now thinking bright blue
i can actually spray and would have just shot it in basecoat and a 2k clear but just dont have anywhere to do it anymore
where the car is sitting in the pics is where it will be done so rollering is really the only option with naighbours cars 10ft away
plenty pics will follow soon
loving the site,projects and everyone seems real friendly

Just a thought here, do you know anyone with a garage you could use for a day? You can do all the prep work and get it ready first where the car is sitting now. Masking and spraying will only take a day and you are done.
Another thought is how will a bright blue go with your interior? Just something else to think about lol
