Paint combo opinions

Guys, thoughts and opinions on paint for the bt1
Is Kimberly bronze and will be painted that colour again.
Options are-

Monotone Kimberly bronze
Kimberly bronze with mx grey bars/moulds
Kimberly bronze with asteroid silver bars/moulds

When it comes to resale value standard is best.
For mine MX grey looks best on SL BT1 anyway

Honestly not sure mate, I'm assuming monotone, but the bars have been sprayed down the line, now I'm re painting and at abit of a blank as to what to paint it. I'm leaning towards mx grey

that is a tough one. if it was a berlina id say mx grey cos youd have the black around the windows to break it up but being an sl it may look funny bronze without the black or pinstriping..

Silver is hard to edit but these are all low quality quick edits to see what it would look like.

Possibly better examples than my edits








Hard to say which option looks the best colour combination.
I think I prefer the silver look the best on that colour.

I use tinypic to place the pictures in my account on their website then I copy and paste the link that is generated on tinypic into this forum and as soon as I submit the post the pictures from the link appear in the post. Looking forward to seeing some of your pictures. As for the edited pictures I use several different editing programs depending on what computer I'm on. I can generally do really good edits and sometimes place different mag wheels on cars etc but lately I'm time poor so everything is just a quick edit on most occasions.

Kimberly bronze with MX bars and some fresh badges with Berlin’s silver / pinstripe will look tidy!

MX Grey wins for me.

Colour coded is okay.

Asteroid can look odd with certain colours unless it is on a proper 2 tone Calais.
