    I want to paint my lude that gun metal color, thats a pretty color there. but then again, i'd choose something with color so that you could paint stuff like the valve cover to match cuz i dont think the valve cover would look good in gun metal

    Out of those colors, I would say that the GunMetal would look the best. I am also a big fan of a pearl white metallic type of color too.

    House Of Kolor....


    If you don't want to spend $3 gazillion for a pint, check out PPG.


    Don't use Omni. Omni sucks.

    in last moths issue of Honda tuning "BOOST"....the cover car is painted a lexus LS 430 black cherry pearl....its so fucking hot...

    thats the kind of look i'm looking for...a rich deep berry, purple, even burgundy pearl....my firends dad will prep and spray the car....but i cant find the color online.

    ..i prefer to buy a paint kit...the colors at the top of the page are from

    http://www.paintforcars.com/

    they have a minimal selection, but i have no idea were to get paint mixed
