most of you know what my car looks like.
the body is red, and ive got silver rims, tinted rear windows, red and black vinyl seats, black momo wheel, black dash, polished valve cover, etc etc.

well, with that in mind, im trying to decide what color i want to go with for my charge pipe that goes from the intercooler to the throttle body.
im gonna get it powder coated

currently, ive got a silver/red/black theme going
i dont really want to have it painted red, beacuse i just think it would look tacky and plus im planning on painting my car.


on a side note, im looking to paint my car 2002/2003 Ferrari 360 Modena Rosso Corsa Red
i contacted the dealership and they dont sell the paint in bulk (quarts) but they said the paint code was 322.

now the plan was to buy it from ferrari, because you wont get the same quality and color just by matching the paint at some paint mixing shop.

can anyone tell me somewhere i can have a quantity, enough to paint my crx, with the highest possible quality, and as close to the factory ferrari paint?
if you have suggestions of another ferrari red or any other nice red, than post, i will surely consider them

the red from the 99-00 civic si...milano red i believe?

if i'd have chosen another color, this would have been it...with the same scheme though (cf hood, black wheels, moldings, etc). :tu:

price for paint is not an issue, quality and beauty are my main worries.
by silver i meant silver, not chrome or polished.
although a chome or polished finish might not look that bad

and white would look rice, nothing else on my car is white

fuck no. my friend tells me that he decided to go standalone last minute, and he doesn't have the money to pay for it just yet. the car is still sitting at the shop TAKING UP SPACE. i think i'm going to swap the b20 at home this weekend, and have them do the turbo. at least i'll have part of it done...
