Never mind on the discs- in fact its for the best- retro rebuild will look best. I think its a good idea to let them choose the paint job too! As long as its got dayglo yellow in it 8)

Bas,

If they offer you free piant I would kindly grab that with both hands.

They do have a paint configurator on their site right?

Of course the outcome will still be that it has to be gloss black with tiny glitter dust :wink:

Yes, onyx black is great.
I think of combining this with candy apple red, fade over like the black purple fade of my T-max.
with red and black decals......

Hi Bas,

I see they haven't the configurator working already.

Your idea of the apple red with black is quite cool I think. The white decals would do fine than ...or have them paint some decals on :twisted:

Solid black goes with white decals imho.

I think their configurator doesn't show the gloss very well. The actual candy apple red looks way less matt on their site.

Think the real version will be nice Bas 8)

Yes,..on the paint page ; the color looks much more like the real thing.
According to the guys at Serotta ; Candy Apple Red is really special in real life.
