re painting my car
I am thinking about re painting my car. For all of you with black cars..you know what im talking about! I find a new scratch on my car like once a week. Nothing major. just little things. I want to keep it black because black is beautifull when its all shiny. And i am in the process of ordering a VIS Hood scoop to. Should i wait till the spring to paint everything?

yeah, don't wanna mess up your new paint job with salt and snow and all that. personally, if i were to spend the money on a re-paint, i'd get a unique color, just to set my car apart. you should take a look at the color of the new evo mr.

Yea my car is black too I hate the constant washing. Just be careful when you go to repaint. If you decide on black don't go to a cheap autobody shop because black will show imperfections left by the painter more than lighter colors.

my "father in-law" has worked at a shop for like 30 years. Thats all he does. They paint cars all day long and do body work. Im sure he will take the time to make it look like a pro.
