what the.... I thought you wanted WHITE.... why are there so many BLUES...You white ditcher
Id stick to white. And i have know you also want white. Are you sure our Indian Painters will be able to do all these Different Shades of Blue...??? Theres a 100% chance of them saying "saab yeh toh voh hi blue hai.. Aap dhup meh jah ke dekhlo" Hope it doest look like gujrati Blue in the end(No offence to any one).
I think GT4 has a paint booth...or GT5..try it in there....

Micky - I prefer the Blue on the 350. White usually never looks good on the Type 1 OHC.

Check out Viper's OHC Type II. I guess if you want white then that colour would be a good option

No GTO..I'm painting it myself at our own place. I'm taking help from the guys at pervez's place to make sure that I get the color on perfectly. Any suggestions?

You could also try the Viper GTS Pearl Blue, it really has a very deep pearlascent feel to it while being on the darker side.
