Yeah definitely go with the gunmetal hands down, but if it proves to be pricier than the burnt orange then get that.

I actually think painting it bright white would look stunning. Perhaps with one or two racing stripes?

What about that orange you had in mind, with an offset black racing stripe.

I'd like to add that whatever you do paint it, paint the headlight buckets black like all of them came from the factory, it looks better that way. But, it's up to you.

Personally my favorite colours for our cars are (In order.)

Black



Dark Blue



Gun Metal Grey



Dark Claret Metallic



All of which are factory colours.
