Marc, I like blue, but I cannot fault any of your thoughts! If it's a long term keeper, then I think you need a colour that you will be happy with. Personally I wouldn't knock the value of a car if it had had a colour change to a colour I liked!
these photos might make your choice, easier or harder lolI have spent months, well years thinking about it (the colour)
When I have seen other cars in the blue it (and its only my opinion) looked a bit normal.
I just fancied something that popped out a bit….!
I’m not bothered about value as I restore to keep, and I’m not bothered how much it will fetch cos I probably be dead when its sold.
1) As there are so few of the CSLs – should I keep it in its original colour as I hope the car will be around ?
2) Will I look a knob head driving an orange car at 55+?
3) Does the blue look a bit flat?
As you can see, I’m all over the place with this and I’m still not 100% with my decision…………
Thinking of booking a few weeks with a therapist!!!!!!!
