Are you sure you will want to go 2 color scheme exterior. Single color looks great too provided you have the right color.

As for the interior, italian cars, black and orange?!!

Gogi, I am not happy with the poll. Someone please delete it . Please go with the Blue and White combo. And the Midnight Blue and White is also good IMO.

yeah! you are right MF - the poll doesnt look that good. IMO the midnight blue and white combi will look great.

@ V-16 - the colour of the car reflects much about the car and also about the owner. so according decide the colour.

stop fretting so much about it...Just decide on whichever one you tilt towards. you'll never be able to come a consensus on this forum! Too many cooks spoiling the paintjob.

But the Majority is (Midnite) Blue and White. And the red and blue are neck to neck. Lets wait till the paint job is slated to a start.. then well just paint her Blu.. er.. the colour of the majority (maybe)

Gogi.. go for midnite blue-white. I think its pretty apparent that u have your heart set on that. Don't think you'll be happy with anything else

Yes V-16 (no suffix ),

Go for Midnight Blue and White. If you like it, go for it. And yes, midnight blue (which i presume is dark blue with a metallic tinge) and white will look good. This suggestion comes from a person who has voted for red/white.


I eat my words back. The Midnight blue will not cause any "taxi"ing problem but please don't go for surf blue. That colour is meant for the 1100 dukkars. I have never seen a 1100D special with a retro paint job. Infact, the pics which you have posted are the old 1100. Not a single one is a special. I hope you are getting my point.

Incidentally, this is my 300th post.

Gogi bhai you do know what's going to happen when people see a Rani Pink & an Orange Top Fiat driven by a sardarji??

Anyways, seems like the car is coming along beautifully & when are we starting the paint? Looks like I'll have to come down to Bombay personally to make sure she's painted Red & Cream!!

And the interior ideas look good! Good going there!
