You still could. Red would be cool with your black car.

Nice! Did you paint that yourself or did you find it somewhere? I was thinking of doing mine black with red lettering.

I really like that! I'm thinking about blacking mine out with the VHT wrinkle plus, I think this has pushed me to go ahead and do it. Just painting my strut bar and valve covers tho.

I'm with you. Once a week washing it is not enough and heaven forbid you even take it to a hand wash place that uses a dirty rag or something. Every tiny scratch is super visible, but for some reason I still love my blacked out 5.0!
