Re: need help choosing paint color for lude

If ur gonna get it completely painted(door jams, engine bay etc.) then I would MAYBE go with the other color. But me personally, I like nighthawk black so I would stick with that. Especially since the bay and door jams wont have to be resprayed.

As blackbb6 said, if its a COMPLETE paint job, do whatever color suits your color scheme. I'm a blue fan so i'd go with the metallic blue. There's a ****load of Black Ludes out there, so for an obvious original look, the blue would be great.

Re: need help choosing paint color for lude

Im still thinking about it. Both colors are nice, n there is alot of black preludes. i was thinking of either blue/black/red scheme or maybe just a black and red.

Like the others have said, either paint it black again, or do it right with the color change by painting everything

Paint it charcoal gray, and get your rims powdered matte black. There's a lot of blue Ludes too...

Re: need help choosing paint color for lude

Charcoal gray would be a good idea.. thinking of maybe a blue interior with blue exterior paint or a black exterior paint.

Re: need help choosing paint color for lude

Blue exterior.



I have a different color I'm going to paint my car, but I want to be the first to do it so I won't say what. It's also a pretty loud color, not sure if you're into that. I say go with blue because it'll stand out a lot more, but if you're worried about overspray then do what you gotta do and go black.

Re: need help choosing paint color for lude

everyone is going to have a different opinion on this, basically just do whatever makes you happy. you're not building your car for everyone else. i'm gonna say stay black, but i'm biased.

you can always tweak the pearl a little to give it a different effect. nighthawk has a lot of blue pearl in it already.
