Hey guys, I am getting ready to blast and powder coat all of my suspension and steering parts, am toying around with changing the color from the basic black. Does anyone have any suggestions, maybe pictures to help me decide?

Other than black, common colors are these, but pink would stand out (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blink.gif)

I went with a Charcoal color, it was called Glimmer and has a little metallic shine to it. this color would probably go good with a lot of body colors.

That blue is so freakin cool looking.

It is definitely my favorite 914 color....

Next to Ivory White of course.

Thanks for the suggestions and Pics.
To those who recommended pink, (IMG:style_emoticons/default/WTF.gif) thanks allot, now I can't let my wife on here or I will be painting hers pink...Hell she made me buy her a pink toolbox when those came out....lol.

The car hasn't been painted yet, so I guess once I decide on a color for the car I will see what I think would look best, but I may just stay with a satin black

I am partial to red. It complements most colors and adds a nice detail to a car.

Okay, so I have decided to go with a dark charcoal color. The calipers are a bright red so I think it will look pretty nice when done.

Again to those of you who said pink, the wife saw that and now wants me to paint her 914 pink. Told her no way no how , will never happen.....Thanks you guys.... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/av-943.gif)

I went with whatever elephant thought was best (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif). I asked for a stock look.

I remember going to the vintage races at mid-Ohio as a little kid. I saw a suspension painted yellow and thought it was the coolest thing. All the linkages stood out and you could easily see how it worked. That experience was formative for me, helped turn me into a car guy.
