Haven't really posted on here so I figured I would put up a couple new pics for those who haven't seen.......
My car will be gettin a Satin Black paint job when we finish the body work(shaved handles, rear reflector and body molding, also been debating on shaving the taillights)
Also on the list of things to do is cold air intake and a diablo chip and finish gettin all the air ride done, and taking out the back seat and replacing it with subs as I won't have enogh room for them with the air tank where my old subs are in the pic below; the truck will stay the way it is minus the sub box and add at least one 12 gallon air tank. New subs are 12w3's that are in my S-10 daily driver and my 10's that are in my car now will go to the truck 8)
Any?'s have at it.......

This is my car in 2002 All MAJOR work has been in the last 6 months
















Mor epics on Car Domain if you wanna see....

Ya Def. had to bag the wing wasn't feelin it at all :roll: It was alright when I first got it but that died in like a month so I tossed it!!!!

Thanx for the complements its been a long 6 months and will be even long with the new plans instored will just take a lot longer cause of money issues, so pray I get a better job!!!

Paint the whole thing high gloss black... your car has some really nice lines that black glossy paint would really bring out.

And amen to losing the wing... thank god you smartened up.

Another colour you should look into is the dark blue that Toyota uses on their Rav4s. Its like a midnight blue, I was considering it for my car, but I can't afford to change the colour right now. I'm just going to have it painted silver again, it hides dust nicely.

I like it. Kits isn't quite my cup of tea, but it looks nice. I think that a Freaking SHINY black paintjob is the key for that car. Like Siragan said it would look sweet with the lines of that car being as sexy as escorts can be. I like those fenders too. And another Kudo for putting the ironing board back in your house.

I have been thinking of going with a gunmetal with a very light silver metalic flake for paint but anything can change I just gotta finish all the other crap I have lined up for the body before that happens and it will be getting painted either flat black or satin black either way just to get it outta being primed when body work is done that way its at least one color and then I will save up for paint but like I said we shall see I might even break out with some crazy shit in the end!!!
If I was to paint it a wild single color what would you think(No Dark Blue Colors!!!)

you are doing a show car , dont go black, hides lines, and its the biggest pain int eh world to keep looking good. (spider webs) you hav eto seal it to much and stuff.

go with the gunmetal its not a stock color and would stick out better (ie noticed more)

lokking ggod though been seeing it over the years change your hard work i spatying off.
