Exclamation what color should I paint my alfa?

I just back ordered my alfa body for my micro but would like to know what color to paint it. I'll be using cans, like always. Ideas?

What single colorshould I do, if I do one.

Also I'll be using a carbon fiber sticker for maybe the hood and wing and maybe other stuff.

Thanks.

Do something you like cause if it was up to me I would stay away from Carbon fiber, too much looks bad.

Carbon fiber's my favorite thing.

Anyway, does anyone have a pic of an alfa with a simpler paint job?

If you race at a track, pick a color that nobody uses. Greens and reds aren't used much.

I like blue, but everyone seems to have a blue scheme on their car.

I ever saw one alfa with no color other than 3 fluorescents on. Pain in the eye man...very workable strategy if i may say, distracting other drivers...

I race my micro, but the summer is really dead in the micro class, so I'm putting a 540 motor in it to just play around. I was thinking competition orange (like my 350z body for 1/10 scale). Guess I'll have to look for some more pics.

Also does anyone make color changing paint in cans?

Thanks
