Deuces tagged my car, new paint job time.

Alright, so the Deuces have been going on a rampage in my little neighborhood, tagging everything. I wake up last night to take a piss and see them outside near my car. Called the police, luckily they were in the area since this has been going on for a few days and they were picked up, but they tagged 3/4ths of my car. My insurance co. gave me $3k and some change for a new paintjob. My cousin owns a highly respected paint shop in IL, and I've been quoted $800 for a same color repaint if I sand it all down myself, or $1900 for a color change.

I currently have silver, debating going championship white. I came on to get some opinions, what does everyone think? I don't have any pictures of the car, it's a base 5speed without the lipkit.

Also, since a question didn't get answered in another thread I made, I have this squeel coming from my front axle area when I'm slowing down or accelerating from a stop. I'm not touching the brakes, just slowing down or accelerating. It happens with and without the clutch pressed in. Pads aren't showing any extra wear and they were just replaced. Any opinions would be appreciated.

Paint = Black/White

Problem = Wheel bearing, pads, axle maybe.

Cannot go wrong with Pearl White in my opinion.

Paint it black if you want it to show that dirt like a b!tch
