I need to make my Challenge car look more racecar. It's classic grandpa Camry gold beige. I don't have time to spray the whole thing, so I need an accent color to paint stripes, roll bar, wheels or something. 

I was thinking red, or baby blue.

A few GS stripes in red on the front fender would break up the beige a bit.

Can we all just bring down whatever half empty cans of paint we have and graffiti it at the track?

Beige is close to gold, and gold and black are the only choice.

Black, red striping between the black and biege.

Best example I could find.

Get several small cans of paint and as many small brushes. Dap brush and shake paint off brush onto car creating Multi colored speckles on your beige paint job. 

If you have kids or several neighbor kids this is a way to get them involved in your hobby.

If you have gold badges, there's only one option:

If you don't have gold badges, get gold badges.

An orange with a lot of red in it, like General Lee orange/red.  Also black.

Is there gonna be any beige left? I thought the plan was to remove as much weight as possible? 
I say, remove all beige. Start fresh. No need to worry about matching anything. 
 

 

Or, camouflage. Leave the mold inside for a natural look, run the whole event in a hazmat suit. Anyone looks at you funny, just blame it on covid. Don't want to get sick. Concourse theme and color scheme all in one.

Paint the car gold and leave two racing stripes in the beige color. And when I say gold, I mean bright-ass gold.

funnily enough I ran across another beige race car in my travels around the net today and it had a green stripe that I thought looked pretty good. 

Im sure it helps that it’s a classic car (Australian market Barracuda) but it’s not exactly the raciest looking car of its era either. Proof that stripes and gum balls will add more racecar to anything, I bet it works for Camry too!

Brg, black, red, or navy.  Like the purse, add the red in but pinstripe width.

I think this is the Avalon that's getting its top cut off to make a "Avalon Speedster".  It's going to attract attention.
