I say paint it white, if you've ever seen a SVT in white you'd know right away that's the way to go. They look soooo good in white and I'm kind of a purist when it comes to SVT's, mainly in fixing them up and getting them back on the road, I hate it when someone parts one out due to some lil' engine or trans problem. If they have a salvaged title though then I think it's ok to part them out. I intended to part mine out but found out it had a clean title and such so I ended up fixing it. I've already put 9k mi on since I fixed it.

You can always do a vinyl wrap. I think it's about $1000 for a do-it-yourself or $3000 for a professional installation. They are good for 3-4 years and maybe as long as 7 but then they start losing their shine.

White with two blue racing stripes would be choice.

If you are willing to try it yourself, i would consider the plasti-dip route, and more specifically the kits from dipyourcar.com . The have additives now you can put on as a finishing coat like candy's, pearls, chameleon pearls, and metal flake.

i had some lady hit me while merging into my lane in my '04 SVTF, she lied to her insurance and they called it a no fault. So i bought a new pass front fender and gonna get a new bumper. Once the new Aftermarket bumper comes in im dipping my whole car in matte black and my wheels in matte black basecoat with their blaze red micro metal flake topcoat.
