Any input greatly appreciated. Thanks

White, if you are going to sell it. You want it to appeal to the most possible people. If you paint it sonic blue you are going to hope the buyer likes the color.

what color is it now? i would keep it the stock color becaus there nothing worse than looking to buy a car only to find out that the door jams and things are a different color.

take care,
adam

That too, I was assuming he was having the whole car painted. If the car is straight just respray the stock color, so it looks good. Cars that have been painted, especially stockish cars, make it look like you are covering something up. When I buy cars I would rather get a car for cheap with a crappy paint job and have it done myself. Plus figure if the benefits will outweigh the cost of the paint.

Its maroon right now, I would paint the jambs and everything tho. In my area, people will pay top dollar for a nice lookin car. Right now I could probably get 3k, but if I paint it, I could get 4.5 - 5k. It would only cost a few hundred if I did it myself too. I dont know, I dont really like white myself, is that a popular color? Thanks

White is just an impartial color, people usually have no like/dislike towards it. Make sure you paint the engine bay too and don't get overspray everywhere, whatever color you choose, I guess anything is better than burgundy.
