does anybody know where i can get all the color codes for the VR4

i am thinking about repainting my car but i am debating whether i should change my NILE BLACK to some other color?

Any opinions on this. I want to change it other than nile black because Vegas gets really hot and it fried my ECU already last summer..

Your car being black didn't fry your ecu.

Evo blue with pink racing strips. Do you really want to invest that much money in doing a body color change correctly? If your thinking a $299 MAACO mask your own car is going to come out looking nice, just trade the galant off for a white 3cyl Geo, before you ruin a rare car. You know one of those windshield shades are way cheaper than paint and do a great job keeping the temps down. And Wops is very correct, Desert heat is not what killed your ECU.

No, I promise the heat had nothing to do with it. I know of a few GVR4s in AZ that have gone....well almost 20 years without the "heat" frying their ECU.

If you are serious about painting your car then you should already know it will be a TON of work to do it correctly. If you are thinking of doing some halfass job on it then you'll end up with a shitty looking car and a dead ECU.

As mentioned, the color is not an issue and as to why your ECU is getting fried.

If you are just tired of the color, paint it at aleast one of the OEM colors. Don't do pearl white, go for summit white, kensington grey, belize green (G31)....

Don't change it from Nile Black! Nile Black is the fastest color! lol
And I agree, just use the window shades and the windows open a crack and it'll help a lot.

Have the windows tinted 5% all the way around and park under a shade. That`s what I did when I lived out there.

Back in Maine the temperature often froze my ecu yeah, but if the paint isn't peeling leave it as it is.

mine is 'Lamp Black' X94 code, which supposedly isn't metallic but I swear I can see metallics in the paintwork. Mostly original paint too.
