Yeah, so im thinking about painting my prelude (especially the hood because the dumbass who had it before me made it look like crap for painting the hood black) So i kinda like the color, i just wanna brighten it up a little bit. Also if i were to totally change the paint color how many coats does it really take of each. My body shop told me that it was 1/2/1 primer/base/clear for a good paint job, but i dont think thats right. We shall see what happends...i can post a better pic when i get it washed and the engine is done. i might just have it all painted to match...i assume it would be much cheaper.
