I love rare candy paint.


I would go custom lexus paint. haha

but if your jus looking for a reg paintjob go to a reputable place.


We did metal flake on my friends foxbody, it looks pretty good, but I like reg clear coat myself. Dont go cheap with paintjobs. Pay a fair amount cuz your gunna be looking at it everyday, not to mention all the hunnies youll be picking up. jk.

you got it brah .....

lexus paint is EXPENSIVE. i had to paint my nephew's pegpego John deer tractor for his xmas present. took him down to pick out the paint. i figured GM paint would be cheap. he picks out Cadillac scarlet red. $220 a PINT. next color toyota should be cheap. little bastard picks out Lexus red. $180 a pint. looking through the book i pulled up Kia. that came out at $32 a pint. when you go looking for a repaint, the normal shops like MAaco will have a standard color. if you want custom, you will have to find a regular body shop that can get you a custom color. but be aware, different colors have different toners and some of those pearls can get expensive FAST.
