Why not give vinyl wrap a go to help you decide before you paint.

How about a brushed steel finish or a matte silver.

Hi,

My Cobra is also in Voodoo Blue.

I have Pearl white stripes - reckon it came up really well.

Get a lot of positive comments about it.

Should be some pics in my gallery.

Just polished it last night after being down the beach for a couple of weeks - jee it comes up a treat.

Cheers

Gregg

White with White pipes and White roundels!

Really depends on how classic you want to go with styling. If classic then the darker the white (towards Wimbledon White), the better IMHO. However if you want modern/racy, then perhaps go for something in a bright white or pearl.

Very nice work btw... Either way it looks awesome!
You cant lose.


PS: Welcome to CC - Pretty impressive first post too btw.

i think that particular blue is so special that perhaps you should let IT be the star of the show, instead of diluting its shocking presence by distracting stripes. Just my two cents...

If you need stripes (and, again, not every Cobra does) then try red-white-red... goes along the Australian flag

Im a big fan of the not quite white white ala wimbledon - which you can do with some perl. Also reckon the vinyl stripes are a great idea - cheap, easy to remove, DIY able.....

Welcome to the forum :-)

Car looks nice! Yep, as I think Varmit might be implying, blue ghosted stripes would look killer.

Are you going to have your painter clear the stripes in, or lay them on top? I recently painted a Cobra for a customer and used Volkswagen Casablanca white (it's a solid which has a slight cream to it and looks awesome on metallic blue - check out the pics in the 'painted a DRB' thread).

Also, who is the manufacturer of your Cobra kit and what is powering it?

hi guys, got the stripes, done looks amazing, cant remember what white it is but looks very good, photos to come.
it has a 302 windsor in it, larger cams will be going in, also have a mass flow efi kit to go on aswell,
has jag front and rear end, i cant remember who the chassi and body is made by but dad said it is a copy of a bongalis, the guy who made it apparently always had money problems, dad picked up the body and chassi for 3500 so it was a bargin and the bodyu was very straight
