Good Color for 5th Gen

I am have been doing some research trying to figure out what color to paint my Lude. I am torn between a couple of colors and wanted to know thoughts from you guys/gals here. My choices right now are in order of most liked to least.

1. YR-536P Imola Orange Pearl (http://i673.photobucket.com/albums/v...oatYR-536P.jpg)
2. NH-603P White Pearl (http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:A...mUWkvASzcMgnAA)
3. B-92P Nighthawk Black Pearl (blue)

What are your guys thoughts? Thanks :)

Re: What color should I paint my car?

that orange would be an awesome color, when I get finished with the body work on mine, I havent settled on a design but I will be painting it NHBP, and the color of my wifes scion tc, and something else as a break up of the dark

Re: What color should I paint my car?

Black Pearl FTW!
Its cool yet low profile not like the Orange that Screams! Look At Me!!!
And the White will blend in more with the other cars on road.

Re: What color should I paint my car?

The orange is a cop magnet. The white is good to blend from a distance and looks great when you're close enough to pay attention

That`s awesome man, glad you liked my car, I mean the girl ;) haha



Very hard question personally I like EBP blue or midnight blue. Pearl white looks great and black looks great. Just depends your preference.

Im hoping very soon. Before the tristate meet.. Got a lot of body work to be done though.. we will see. Im leaning very heavy toward the premium white pearl. I think it looks tuff as hell. And I want to get 06 RSX type S rims. I think they would finish it off nicely. Thanks for all the input guys I appreciate it greatly!

Re: What color should I paint my car?

great to hear your trying to get it done in time for the TSM! the more that come out the better! The rsx wheels are a nice touch, but think to many people rock them imo. they do look good though.

I sure am trying. I am going to be there no matter what. I just want to have a nice car not one that looks like someone too a hammer and sander too. Looks like crap right now haha. I do agree a lot of people rock the rsx rims, I have 03 rsx type s rims now. It just that the 06 rims were built for the prelude just put on a different car haha.

Black. But any imperfections will show. Hardest to keep clean. Use a California Duster and McGuire's detail spray everyday and you will be fine.
