Re: Murder My lude

ROTFLMAO, that was funny. but seriously Krylon has a new tip that allows you to turn the spray from horizontal to vertical, it can be done and with less splatter when the can gets low.

Really all you need to do is have the body shop or the guy who is going to paint it for you scuff your paint if the body is in good conidtion if you have deep scratches or key marks your going to want to fix those first.

Re: Murder My lude

flat black = cheap crappy look imo but yea the cans would be the cheapest. the cheapest+best would probably be macco or however its spelled.

Re: Murder My lude

All you would need to do is sand the body down,clean it all up and then have maaco paint it for $600. Idk how an all flat black lude would look maybe the matte black paint has a lil bit of a shine but the desert camo 240 looked sweet as hell.

matte black s2k



VS flat black

This is the best post by far I have ever seen on ANY car forum!! I completely agree with you as far as flat black goes.

Plus when you flat black a car 99% of people dont do it right and it turns out to be zebra striped and very ugly.

Go a midnight black paint with some dark windows and some black wheels.

Re: Murder My lude

If its done right a matte finish paint job looks very cool (see pics above ^) but to just spray paint it would look bad. You end up seeing imperfections in the paint like steph said you see the stripes where the paint went down. Used PLENTY of Krylon Flat Black and it wouldnt hold up on the outside of a car for long. Its a very thin paint. As is any flat black. Have a Earl Schieb or someplace like that doit for $500. It will at leask turn out alright. I can see it being cool on a 5th gen.

Re: Murder My lude

This is one thing that i think should just be done right. Especially on a 5th gen. Yea these cars are a litttle old, and they are cursed. But they are our babaies and we need them to look there best.

if you only "kinda want to do it" then dont do it at all. bc u can seriously mess the look up of your car. a guy that has a cb7 that runs around in the same town that i do thought that he would like a flat black car, and the white paint that was on it didnt look too bad. and he did it hisself and now it looks like total dog crap.

the only flat or matte black paint job the prelude deserves is from a professional, not from just anybody with a $5 can of paint in their hands.
