Exclamation Car Repaint !! You Pick My Color

Whats up guys/gals....well i've come to take a poll (hand count since i cant post a poll).. i've been wanting to repaint my car.. its a 03 Silver Ex. when i bought the car i wanted black but they didnt have it so i had to settle for what i got. not to fond of silver so i have decited to repaint...i have a carbon fiber hood, and will be getting a Carbon Fiber truck as well. so thouse have to stay the original color...unless you can paint Carbon Fiber. in it self is another question.......so heres the colors im thinkin of

#1. Black w/ pearl (sp) coat (please suggest a peal color)
#2. Pearlesent Red (it flips to an orange red)
#3. any color you suggest that looks good.

other info the interior to my car is black w/ silver trim (painted)

And Should i paint the Carbon Fiber as well. ?

What ever color wins .is the color its going to be...
i have about 1500 saved for the repaint so if you have any idea what cost is it would greatly help.

Thanks.............

I think you should keep silver its goona look really nice with the carbon fiber parts your getting. Its much better looking when its dirty. Mines black my darn car is dirty all the time. Is your paint damaged? Just buy some meguiars wax and give your car a nice wax its goona look sick.


I don't know if for 1500 youll get a paint job better than stock. Keep in mind your new car has I think a few clear coats as well. Its not a bad paint job.

I think you should go with the house of kolor planet green with the lime gold candy, i would leave the carbon fiber black but add the candy to it..

should strip it down to bare metal then clear coat it. clear owns you. think about the weight savings of not having any paint too

uh, I dont think your gonna get a very good paint job for $1,500, especially not perl or candy. From my exp a good paint job costs about 4 grand.

If you do go black, and get the cf stuff, and decide to pearl coat, just pearl coat the cf, don't paint it black as well. Personally, I'd probably go with a Black Cherry color.

Black looks good but it gets dirty too easily. I think silver and cf would look good. cf on white looks good too...as well as some kind of blue pearl. You have to make the decision yourself. It's your car and you're gonna be the one who's driving it. Color it to your taste.
