A bit of help from the collective if you wouldn't mind
My project: BMW K100 plus cargo/dog pod sidecar.
The bike: Currently hand brushed matt black.
The sidecar body: Will be plain aluminium with some sort of anti-glare paint on the nose only. I'll all look a bit Mad Max to be honest.
1. I want the best colours to stand out on European motorways, in bad weather such as snow and maybe in other enviroments such as if broken down in Morocco or a forest road in Norway.
2. I don't want to look "official" even though with the chair this is not a huge factor. The matt black at times looks dark green. Should I get the chance to get out and about at bit further I want men with guns on borders to think "Wallace and Gromit" not "Inglorious Barstewards". No Ural style camo.
3. I'm hopeless at cleaning so something along the lines of Hammerite might suit best, but as I'm looking at aluminium and plastic I think I might need two sorts of paint.
Ideas so far:
Keep the matt black but paint the new front mudguard, sidecar mudguard, chair nose and side panels day-glo orange, yellow or pink.
KTM/VW Orange the lot (just to wind up the blue vs orange argument)
Red and Green to offend my wifes dress sense but could also act as a magnet for local football lunatics if done the wrong way/shades.
Tartan: We'll send the apprentice at work to get the paint (She can pick up a new bubble for the spirit level and ask about a long stand while she's at it).

Any other ideas are appreciated
