    Nice shade of blue. You did a great job man. Are those 18" wheels? Did you paint it yourself? I really like the headlights. :nice:

    You dont happen to have the paint code for that do you? I have some off topic projects I'm working on, and that color would be perfect. Again, you did a great job.

    im with stupid ^

    the flat black looked super good also and the quality of that paint looks great. you guys sprayed it yourselves? how many other cars have you painted before? looks like top notch work.

    keep it up. keep posting updates, you can make this kindof a build thread
