Porsche 911 Carrera 1985, please help

I am going to spray this porsche. But I am sure what is the color at the arrow. Could anybody tell me it is white, silver or gery? I have searched from internet, but the picture doesn't show clearly.

You'll need to host the picture on the web and link to it here. Or use vB code tags to display it in the post. You have your own AF gallery for just that purpose. Just click on Gallery in the list of links at the top of the page, register, login and upload. A list of vB codes can be found via the AF FAQ (as opposed to the modelling FAQ). Good luck.

...Or, stuff what the instructions say, do a Google Image search for the car you're building, and decide for yourself.

The bezels surrounding the headlights on the 930 were occasionally chromed-



-but more often were body color.



Pick your favorite. As ZoomZoom said, the headlight reflectors themselves are nearly always chrome.

All those pics show Euro versions. On the USA version, that area is gray.

I'm not too sure about that. I believe the double front turn signal is a US spec feature. I found both pics on US sites, and the Oregon license plate on the one indicates US registration....

The difference is that those headlamp surrounds are not the same as what's in the Carrera kit. Look closely at the boxart illustration and my model...Porsche used a thicker/tapered body color headlight surround on the standard Carreras (or at least some of them). The area Po9r1s1che describes as gray is inside the actual surround, but outside of the glass lense itself, which is recessed within the surround. The model doesn't accurately portray this as the lense itself is a bit large, leaving no inner exposed ring to paint gray or silver and the lense is barely recessed-it's almost flush. The examples you show are of a different lense, one that is 3 dimensional and extends outwards from the thin surround. I googled my way to some '85 Porsche pics, it's hard to find many w/the surrounds as seen on the '85 model but you can find them. Many of the Fujimi Porsche 911 models come w/multiple variations of headlight surrounds and lenses in the same kit.

Po9r1s1che used to own a guards red Carrera very much like my model, he knows his 911's. If my model had a black interior it would be fairly close.
