Now then for a while been thinking that my van is very white, it's a big slab of metal after all. So been thinking about adding a little bit of another colour in to the mix. Just a hint, maybe the grill, mirrors etc

Now with a black van on red works really well, silver I think light blue looks awesome, but white, I'm stuck.

I've just got some black wheels, so maybe black? All the chrome front and back changed to black, maybe mirrors etc

What's everyone think of a colour to add to white?

This isn't an important question, I'm just bored and pondering.

Personally i think the way to go would be to either do black accents or go for a completely out there statement colour. But thats where the dileema comes in....
As you've gone for black wheels I'd carry that theme on myself πŸ‘

Black grill, mirrors, roof spoiler would look good I think 😎

Yeah that's basically my thoughts right now, and the light trims, number plate surrounds on back. Although in the E51 porn thread gifted to us by @Richard Fox I also like a black bonnet on the white cars I think, maybe anyway 😁

Also like the old fresh and minty bus where the black goes up the front of the A pillars/door edge. 20190206_113028.png

If you get stuck between black/white you could always go chequered :p

You could try plastidip on various parts to see if you like it and it would save investing in door handles before you’re sure.

I have to say, as much as I love the Black/White look... it's been done to death.

I say you should dare to be different.

Dark Red/Blue looks great against the white, with black wheels :)

@Chris T I have a white bonnet with vents in the garage I was gonna add to the rider. Unlikely to need it now.
Any good to you for small donation to 1st Classes renewal fund?

Go white and orange. Or neon green

Orange/Green are bold choices, especially if you go for the bright shades rather than dark shades. But done right, they can look stunning. They will end up a little Marmite though, so you'll find some people really love it and others can't stand it lol.
