It's so hot right now. I mentioned it in another thread, but I think my Miata would look kinda badass in this color with black wheels. I made a few chops. More to follow.

if you did it that color the top is just a little too much green. Maybe matte black hard top?

Freedom Autosport in Koni Challenge has a color pretty close to that.

I can't wait to chase those. I have a special place in my little, black hear for an orange one:

There are a few of these running around Austin...Hook em!

I almost crashed into a silver one at MSR on the 3.1. Some tard was driving it and since we were on the big track, he accidently took the turn-off like he was on the little track...so why not just back up?!?!?!?! I managed to miss him, but went off track at about 80mph. lol

I like the black top idea, I'll do that when I get home tonight.

I saw a few of those at Road America a couple years ago, some of the high-end racers' personal cars in the paddock.

take the photoshop with the green car/black lip/black wheels and add a black stripe to the side of the car.... that will set it off.

while I think that color is nice, and the chop looks great of your car, there are SOOOOOOO MANY riced out civics/integra's in my area using that color I just hate it.

Eventually, I barely even see the car lately (it's in FL) but when I get back, depending on how big the bonus is for an Arabic linguist, probably. I'll probably black it out underhood and do a lot of the prep myself.

Meh, tried it, didn't like it. I agree they don't look swell sticking out green with the black roof, but I'll think of something.

Doppley - I would but I'm afraid I'm not that good yet

I think I may copy your idea but replace the green with some sort of red orange (like the black GT3's accents, maybe a bit darker) and everything else matte black
