Re: Matte Black Yay? Nay?

Either paint the whole car or don't do it at all.

Besides, nothing looks wrong with your car now? Would you drive it off a bridge if someone started a thread here saying they did it to theirs? Quit trying to follow the crowd and do what you like. Fvck everybody else. You have to drive the car everyday, you might as well enjoy doing so.

Re: Matte Black Yay? Nay?

haha it look nice the way it is. i rather spend money on other parts than paintin the car. if u not goin to enter any car show, then is pointless to paint the car diff color or diff style. well is ur car, do whaever, long as make urself happy lol.

Re: Matte Black Yay? Nay?

Wow. Harsh words from some. Not really trying to follow anyone more like stand out from the crowd. Just getting sick of the JDM theme and too many people are duplicating it. My hood and front bumper are full of rock chips. I also love what novitec has done with the F430.

Re: Matte Black Yay? Nay?

I think if you are going to do it, do the whole car. black out your lights, get clear fogs and black those out, tint the tails, and darker tint. Your wheels will look great with the matte if you do the whole car. I would try and find someone good with photoshop to make you some pics.

and make sure the paint job is a good one. dont get maaco to do this kind of job.

on a side note...what wheels are those?

Thinking about switching the fogs. Tinting the tail lights i'm not a fan. Plus here in canada you will get hasseled for it. Same with tinted windows.

The rims are 17inch rota circuit 10's Colour is royal bronze

Re: Matte Black Yay? Nay?

yea tinting the tails is UGLY imo.. i dont know why some people do it.. it almsot never looks right in my eyes...i like the yellow fogs, they flow well with the bronze.. ur car looks great how it is.. u can black out the heads like most people do but i dont think its a necesity in your case..everyones doing that anyway.. if ur gona go way out n different with the Matte theme, then u might as well stick with cleared headlights... the matte will look good all the way around but make sure its not cheap looking.. u dont want it to look liek primer.. and yeap..those rotas are gorgeous...
