ok people, i finally got the cash to get my car sparyed, due to the body kit i have i need to paint my car, but im thinkn about getting ride of the stock white pearl color and getting somthing else...

i want to get somthing different but i cant decided on a color, i was thinkn maybe type r yellow off the integra (pheonix yellow its called), or the yellow off of the new chevy cavlier... there is to many orange and neon green cars in this town so thats out of the question...

also i have a cf hood so that plays a part in it...

anyone got any ideas for paint colors for a 5th gen prelude to get repainted soon?

if you want the car looking JDM get the nissan gold rush or if you want it pretty go with the GSR supersonic blue, saw it once in a show, looks really good with 5 gen. or type R yellow.

I think the IS300 grey looks good but the Phoenix yellow will probably accent the CF Hood more. It's up to you....:D

supra blue, rsx blue or is300 blue would be my choice. too many people have yellow cars IMO...they do look good but they are definitely played out.

but if it were my car id get jet black with a bunch of clear coats...mmmmmm....

The GMC Denali Pewter is very nice, it's the color I planned to paint my car before I put it in storage. Looks good with a carbon fiber hood and black wheels too :D

I am going to painting school right now and have learned that using 4 coats of clear (standard on most base/clear paintjobs) will give you practically the same color depth as more, but also won't crack like using more coats will...4 coats and then sanding and polishing will be more like 3 coats when all said and done. I'm painting my REX Tangelo Orange pearl. I'll be repainting my Pearl White lude, a Super White with blue, and green pearl in it Should look nice.
