Re: Getting painted soon

changing the cars color is a major hassle and if not done right looks horrible.. its also very costly compared to just a re-spray.

Yeah it looks good the way it is already, but in my opinion I'm not a big fan of the black side scoops. Just my opinion

Mines in the paint shop untill further notice because of hurricane Irene making the shop lose power. What im getting done is a stripe up the hood, roof (the entire roof besides door panels. And the wing all gloss black.

Wow that sucks about the power loss. Hope everything is ok up there. And cant wait to see that paint job. I may do something like that.
I may leave my hood black and roof and trunk black. Im still thinking about all my options.

Definitly. It took me till last minute to decide how I want it. The guy used a photo editing software to show me how it would look the diffrent ways so the original idea got smashed and I changed a few things. I'll have pictures up asap of the final product. Its estimated to be done weds but no promises were made which is understandable due to the conditions up here in jersey. If you look at my paint thread that's half the story. Those are all pictures me or my family took. The highway by my house got destroyed by the river. It washed away and land slide into the river. Its scary up here by me.

You could do two tone. Perfect line to follow on our cars to split it up. Silver bottom black top would look sweet. Still keeps your silver and black theme but also changes it up some for you.
