Spray my Track car Matt Black, your ideas needed plz???
« on: 15:47, Mon 23 February 2009 »
was thinking of spraying my Car Matt Black? DIY

Because im only using my R5 as a track car and NOT a day to day runner was looking to choose a Funky but mean looking colour choice, but also to take into concideration i need a colour that is easy to touch up when scuffed on track :lol:

So im thinking Matt Black with red alloys or very bright colour luminous orange alloys??

Your help is needed people, ideas welcome, feel free to post up any pictures you feel will look good, and that goes well with matt black.

Im sure you lot could help me design the look of my car :P

Thanks, :wink:

Do it in satin black looks better and also has a slight sheen to it.

that is smart as fuck that like (good pic bric!!)

and sonicjdm you shouldnt need to do much prep just scotchbrite the full car then apply the paint (i am a painter just to let you know :wink: ) go to your local bodyshop/paintshop and ask for abit of grey scothbrite pad and you'l be sorted matey

just remember if you scotchbrite it when rubbing the car down with it use water so it doesnt go dry and the water helps it run accross the surface smoother and faster :wink:

no problem matey  :wink:

i would do the wheels white would pretty smart

basicly if you are doing the bodywork satin black any colour wheels would go with it you could even do the wheels satin black tomake it look pure stealth style :wink:
