i like the purple but the aqua is closer to stock and its pearl.....i'm having a hard time deciding...i really would like a rich deep metallic pearl violet...

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.

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


Don't use Omni. Omni sucks.

fuck flat black, only reason I'd do it is if I wanted my car dull and dirty all the time.
