After two days of very bad chops and a lot of :banghead , I can't decide what to do with my ga in the paintshop. So... tired, sore, an slightly malnurished, I've decided to solicite the advice and opinion of yus guys.

Heres the deal. I got a silver gagt sedan with an unpainted sd hood and a unpainted and uninstalled full sc/t kit. I have three ideas/choices:

1. Simply a complete silver sc/t kit and hood with silver mirrors and door posts.

2. Stick with me here... silver mirrors and door posts, black wing, black rear chin, silver side rockers w/ black swoosh, black front chin, silver hood with solid black going into inlets and fading black to silver from outlets. Also two black nostrils and two black stripes on the bottom of stock bumper in line with nostrils.

3. Back to the drawing boards.

So what do you think?

Also consider I got 35% tint all around, and the rims and tails in the pics. The pics are a little scary with my ga taken apart.

I'm gonna go with choice #1.

Silver SC/T with black swoosh, black on the hood like you said, and maybe black wing... some people on here have a different colored wing and sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Keep the front and rear fascia silver though. I'm not sure about the stripes you're talking about doing on the bumper... might end up looking really bad- maybe someone can photoshop some ideas for you.

^^Eww, that SCT looks gross painted like that! I would definitely do the lowest part black and leave that part that is black in that pic silver.

when I talk about the front bumper stripes, I kinda mean like what IrateGT did with his ga. i saw that chop, but the bottom would also be black. plus mine is a sedan

If it were ME, I'd keep the whole car one color, I personally dont like 2 tone SC/T kits.

What about doing a darker color of silver instead of black? It would be subtle, but nice looking

Jake

Thats what I was thinkin, if its a smilar color, I dont like 2 tones that are 2 opposite colors, but a slightly darker silver might look good, but not black IMO.

maybe a dark grey or gunmetal. my mind just kinda went to black because not many colors go with silver

I think there was a member on here a little while ago talking about doing silver on dark silver... can't remember who though...

I'm gonna say don't paint the door posts silver on either one. The rest of the window trim is black and if you put a different color in the middle is contrasts too much and breaks up the flow of the window and pillar lines. I've seen it before... it doesn't look good.


Plain silver always looks good but it's been done too often. Black and silver has been done a lot too, but I do think the two tone sc/t kits look good if done with the right colors. Have you thought about maybe a dark blue metallic?

maybe a dark blue metallic?

Ooo, I actually like that thought :D What about a dark metallic red as well? Theres a civic in my town thats silver with dark metallic red on the very bottom of his body kit and has red badges and wat not, I actually think it looks really sharp.

here are some very rough chops of what I was thinking for the front. might look better if chopped by a pro. i did ones of the back and the side swooshes in both colors, which look like crap.

so thats what my ga would look like with the chin spoiler..

that actually looks pretty nice... not the chop...but the idea.

Hmmm, I still don't know about the front part- but I like the idea of dark blue and even dark red- I don't think anyone has matched silver with dark red before. I assume you're going to get cleared headlights, too?

On second thought, painting the nostrils wouldn't look too bad, kind of like the sport appearance package on a GTO. I would still stay away from striping the bumper though.

When I said dark red I meant the SC/T Kit. Not anythin on the hood. O_o But I guess there are a thousand possibilities so I say keep playin with it on paint or photohop if you have it and see if you find somehting you like.

heh, why is there a small part of the SCT rocker panel painted silver? Were you planning to paint all of that black band around the car silver too?

very nice ga, man. love the rims. all siver is definitely my fallback plan if nothing else gains my interest. its just that I have a sd hood and want to do something with the hood vents.

yeah joe I'm looking for clear lenses.

i also have the SD hood but never got to install it, i was thinking of just painting the inside (nostril parts) black, the two grills black, and the chin to match.

actually, theres a red GA on the forms like that
