What should I do for my next project car?

After my last project I took a break & now I'm ready to get back to the paint booth..lol I don't race my Xmod, it is a "desk queen" For me it is a labor of love for the perfect paint job. (For those that don't know about my last project) I sand the body down to get rid of the paint. Then it is wet sanded. Primer coat is laid down & then wet sanded. Painted & then wet sanded once more. Finally the top coat is applied.

Now for the paint choices that i'm looking at:
Chrome (Love the look of a chrome car & would be VERY unique.)
Glow-in-the-dark green (Again..VERY unique.)
Xposures (Changes color once car temp changes.)

With that being said, help me pick the style of Xmod. I don't want to do another Skyline. I'm think I want to the Z or the NSX. Help me get over the hump & commit to a car...

i like the idea of chrome, but it would have to be good chrome, if your air brushing use "alcad II lacquer : chrome for lexan" i use it for all my chroming needs (with a brush) and its amazing just like the real thing. if your canning duplicolor bumper chrome is ok, but looses its luster after a while (used on my bike, and now its silver)

id go with the Z body for 2 reasons, you stay loyal with nissan, and she shares a long chassis with the skyline. some other thinks you could do are blacking out the head lights and black wheels.

I'm not talking about trailer paint chrome. What i'm thinking about is a buffed shine real chrome paint. It's kinda spendy, but what the hell! The rest of it would be used on other projects. The look of it when finished would be simply stunning.

Well I went with the WRX. It is partially sanded. I haven't had much time to work on it, with home projects. The paint has been purchased. It is going to be chrome. I'm also in the process of building a downdraft paint booth. The only problem is it has been too hot to work in the garage. We've had consecutive days over 100 & heat indices in the 110 range. I may have to wait till fall.
