I have a '73 MGB. I am cleaning the carbs and then I think I need to paint it. It was originally a maroon I think. The question is what color should I make it.

You might want to paint it the original color. The MGB is a beautiful car that looks good in all colors, but for originality you might want to research and go back to the original.

It might make it worth more if you ever sell it - though others may have a different opinion. Some enthusiasts look down on non original colors.
