Paint Opinion?

Hey guys,
since i bought my car i knew i would need a new hood, so im gonna be getting one hopefully this spring if i dont sink my money into the engine. Im doing the major body work(rust, driver fender, and bumper cover this spring here and im quoted at 550 bucks for that) but ok i digress.






I would like to know if any one has ever seen a silver lude with black hood, sun roof, and i already got my wing black. I kinda want an opinion on it before i sink the cash into it just to hate it after...

Also i was looking into following the body line on the hood and just painting a nice wide stripe on the hood maybe.

I would photo shop it but i dont got the program any more. anyways just gimme a little feed back on it let me know what you think.

Hmmm carbon fiber? maybe. i kinda wanna offset the black wing in the back and even it out. i love how the black wing looks on it but i just need more black towards the front to even everything out

Re: Paint Opinion?

OH OH ME ME! I have a red lude, and I'm not a fan of tickets. Loud muffler + sporty car + red paint, =/ Cant give a cop any better reason.

I'm going with a carbon fiber hood, possibly trunk too. What color do you guys suggest, with the black? The engine bay I'll need to touch up myself eventually, the paint shop doesnt do it.

Re: Paint Opinion?

Cops never look twice at my red 'lude. It could be due to my mismatching white hood and faded paint lol.

Re: Paint Opinion?

Silver with carbon fiber hood would look ok i think but i would paint the spoiler silver too. That's just my opinion tho

Black spoilers and gas doors look lame, in all honesty.

I agree, looks like you went to junkyard and threw some parts on your car. Whatever makes you happy tho.

pretty much sums it up. paint the car all one color. if you want carbon parts, buy them. don't turn your prelude into a clown car.

Re: Paint Opinion?

Its cool everyone has an opinion... i kinda regret the fuel door but i like the look of the spoiler and the piece around the licence plate but ya that stripe looks kinda sweet i might consider it after i do the rust.

Really? I figured the photoshop would have done it. I know there are different strokes for different folks but it seems as tho you just want to paint random things black. For a two color scheme paint job there needs to be a....scheme.
