None of the above. Paint it hot pink, then borrow your grandma's lace curtains and lay them on the hood. Once the curtains are secure paint the hood with black rattle can. When the paint dries you can remove the curtains and you will have an awesome flowerey design, which will not only look tits but will be 100% unique as well.

Re: 3 choices need help

wait until a couple months before you paint it and decide because your intentions for the car will more than likely change. do what you want and fuk everyone else's opinion. i dont know how many times i can say that.

Re: 3 choices need help

Try to print some photos of preludes as close to the colors you want or photoshop your car and put those photos in your bedroom or somewhere that you see them everyday. Wait for at least two weeks and see which one you like more after that.

This is just something I heard they recommend for when people are undecided about a tattoo and thought it applied to this also.

Good luck on your decision and my choice will be #3. There's just something about a black lude.

Re: 3 choices need help

Would it be a bad idea to paint it a different color because of the engine bay and door jams?

yea cause i bought my lude with a big dent on one quarter panel and bad paint on the other one then i got those spots fixed but the red is a little bit darker than the original and clipped a parked car pulling out of my school parking lot (a very weird thing for me to do cause i am a very careful driver especially with my car). So i might have the whole thing repainted to white by the guy that did my other stuff but im having second thoughts of changing the color.
