Default Sneak Peek at my new paint!!!

Looks great!
Reminds me of a bass boat we had growing up called "Bangles and Beads" after my Dads favorite Sinatra song. Everything on it was purple metal-flake, black, or chrome. We had a matching trailer... it looked the business! Can't wait to see the whole car. Are you going with stock body panels/bodykit/what...?

For now stock body with the exception of a racing beat type II nose. I can't wait to see it in person either. I need to drive this car!

And? You are going to paint your Miata that color? Seems like a lot of work, unless you leave the engine bay and trunk the original color - Or is your car already painted in a greenish color? New name for you - "The GREEN HORNET" :gay:

P.S. What's up with the funky flower pot?

yes miata will be painted that color, engine and trunk are black and will stay black, but all jambs will get sprayed. I know it's a lot of work but i won't be doing it.

the flower pot, i don't know it's moms

What shop is doing your paint? Are they decently priced? I'm looking into some paint next and my folks live in the philly area.

a friend of mine is doing the work partly at home and partly at his work(body shop) He is charging me 2000-2500. which is a really good price. However 75% of the body panels on my car are brand new (accident) and will need no work and the rest of the car is pretty smooth. He is currently building a huge shop at his house and plans to do side jobs and custom work all the time. I guess depending on the condition of the car and what you're looking to have done will really determine the price.
