Someone Swiped me tonight.

Someone side-swiped the rear fender of my car tonight in the parking lot where I work. So this may just be the excuse I needed to get it repainted soon. I really wanted to go with a different color and a simple but loud paint job. If ya'll had the opportunity to paint my car however you'd like it, what would you do? Any suggestions? I'll try to get some pics of my ideas out soon.

dont change the car's color its a MAJOR hassle and you will have a VERY high chance of regretting it.

Yeah, I figured it would be since the entir frame and inside of the dash and doors are painted that color...

But if I did yellow accenting through the paint job then it might all work out and look pretty great.

Nah, they didn't just drive off... They would've had to pull forward again, back out again, THEN drive off. Which they did.

Re: Someone Swiped me tonight.

If I may.... Personally i think your ride looks Gr8 the way it is. However if you are pondering the idea of a (color change) its twice the price. Because its as time consuming to disassemble a car and paint all the nooks and crannies, as it is to do the same to the vehicles exterior. VERY LABOR INTENSIVE. Not counting the cost of paint and matierals...
****AND ID DONE PROPERLY A COLOR CHANGE CAN ACTUALLY ADD VALUE TO YOUR VEHICLE, NOT TAKE AWAY****
But if you have your mind set on a color change do it right!!! And if you do that you can expect to spend $ 5,000 + for a quality color change paint job...
...IN My Opinion leave her like she is. coming from a guy that didnt...

Thanks for the insight! I'm not worried about cost of materials or anything. We get free paint and free use of a booth and body shop. My dad is district manager for PPG in Louisiana and Mississippi and has been in the car painting business since he was 17. Lol. The disassemble would be quote bothersome though..

Re: Someone Swiped me tonight.

What is that Zinc Yellow? You could go with the screaming yellow they had on the Mach's in 04...if it were me I'd paint it Sonic Blue but I'm extremely biased of course ...it's loud but not over the top like Mystichrome (another badass paint job).

In all honesty I would probably just stick with the Zinc Yellow color code, it looks damn good as it sits now...as said it's much easier and a new color can be a bigger chore as you don't want to half *** it. Painting every nook and hinge is big when show or sell time comes.
