    Got her flatted out this weekend. This is just temp to get that old yellow paint off. I'll get a custom job done soon... We had a honda swap contest a while back, but I haven't setup a voting poll yet to see who won. Anyway here she is.

    Nope, tried my hand at real painting. I screwed up in a few places, but it didn't turn out too bad. I had a friend mix the paint and he taped it off. I sanded and painted. I'm pleased for now. Like I said, in a few weeks, it'll look different again.

    I added two pics...edited the link above.

    um...no. only if you used a gloss clearcoat. there are flat, semigloss, gloss, and satin clearcoats.

    example: skunk2 civic si - satin black with satin clearcoat. bad-fucking-ass.

    sorry, but was that done with a gun or rattle can ? That looks really good !!! I have some dents to repair and wouldn't mind that color. What is the difference between that and satin black ?

    Its from a gun. I like the way it turned out too. There's a layer of flat clear over flat base there, but I'm going to ad a few more. Thanks for the thumbs up on work.

    I don't know what flat satin would look like. Probably good though. This is real smooth to the touch.

    So... should I put the H and the Civic DX thinggies on the back or should I leave them off? I've got two little holes in the back where the H came out. I kinda want to put that back on at least. I don't want to fill and repaint the back end. I think it would be kinda funny to DX it again.

    Just put the H back on the trunk and leave everything else off. That would go well with your flat black finish. :thumbsup:

    How many cars have you painted before? If it's cheap/easy enough, I might go buy a spray gun and paint my truck myself.
