    My vote is still black, also black will be harder to get done right with the rattle cans. Red seems easier to do. Red with black stripes

    Noted on the ram air slots lol fogot about those

    Got the paint. IM actually gonna try my hand in Painting with a gun. THe paint was relativly cheap. Its a waterbase so ill have to practice on somthing i dont really car about first lol.
    Im gonna do a gloss black with red ram-air style hood strips (the little side stripes)
    WIsh the weather and work would cooperate with me and both be on my side at the same time lol If it isnt raining and cold out its nice and im stuck at work when its nice out lol.

    well i did a halfass CETA mod in the back for the rear diffuser add on. just to blend it into the car better. Other then freshening up the rest of the cars paint later, i think its about done other then the front bumper for a FMIC later. No huge holes or anything, but mybe open part of the liscens plate cover when im racing when i dont have to have a front liscense anymore.

    Hood looks great. Now you need to match the body red to the hood red

    What's FMIC, an you goin to color coordinate your interior? Just a couple things i did to mine was painted door panels black died the vinyl arm rest black an the trim with the speaker an tweeter i painted white, then the trim over the gauges an radio i painted white an i use krylon fusion gloss colors an hit it with some clear coat an it has a good glossy shine to it

    Im still wondering what to do with my interior. dont think ill bring too muh red into the interior. I actually like my black and tan original interior. i did alittle black carbon fiber accents on a few pieces but nothing crazy. just to give it alittle touch of different color.
    the hoods looking good and is holding up well. gotta buff it and wax it before i put it away for the winter. finally got winter beater now i can park the bird for the winter lol
