    Default DS roof colour

    Run for the hills, it’s colour choice time again. Francoisé is getting more and more Pallas bling as the months go by. My choice is weather to keep the current white roof (this was painted to imitate a matt fibreglass ID type roof) by its creator..... or do I go with a Pallas option which was matched to the Gris Ciel Lourde back in 66... Bleu D’Orient, Blanc Cararre, Gris Argent?

    I don’t have a pic of the dark blue roof option... being a one year only colour, pics of the DS in Gris Ceil Lourde are few and far between.

    My pick Matthew. . .



    I really like Blanc Cararre as a body colour but not so much with Gris Ciel Lourde as a roof colour, which combo are you favouring?

    Cheers

    Probably the Gris Argent... a dark roof would be too hot... I like cararre too but the slight green tint with the duco and brown leather.. not sure.

    I think they all look good, the gris argent though has the obvious kapow haute style thing happening. That leads to stereotype look however. As Borat might say, "vereeenyyyyyyyyyzzzzz! wa wa wee wa!! "

    second that! Gris Argent is very sophisticated and would go well with the darker grey body and brown leather interior.

    no no no. Gris argent will look crazy with a grey body, like you are colourblind. Sophisticated, not.
    White or silver or body colour only.
    Black or dark tones won't work as the tone of the body is pretty dark.
    BTW is that frankenD?

    The pic with the white matt roof is... isn’t Gris Argent silver?

    I’m actually leaning to the Blanc Cararre ... it has a vintage look but still gives me a gloss finish which doesn’t look ID.
