Space age in Mesa on country club across from bap. They have cheap paint, they even have a area of paint people had mixed and didn't pick up. If you find a color someone else had mixed its way cheap dude.

I have a gallon of white sitting here...

@ twincharger: i would love to spray my car at your house! but where do i go to get the paint and about how much do you think it will cost? (just invited myself... awesome... lol)

169 for a gallon plus it looks like the hardener is free.

I saw a krylon rattlecan for seven bucks in a hardware store today.

10 cans and you're there!

More than 2? Lol Your car looks good for spray paint though, must've taken your time on prep.

@wang-chung: prep was a big part. removed anything and everything that could come off then light wet sand. its a pain but when the only part of the car has oem paint is the engine bay and trunk its worth it. i cant stand over spray on window trim or corner lights and things. just gets to me plus when you remove something your car isn't suddenly 2 tone. lol

@twincharger: didnt mean to make it sound like that. lol.  but thanks for considering it.

Not a problem, I've done driveway paint jobs before.  Get all your prep done and then hit me up.

That color you're talking about kind of looks like one of the FR-S colors. Pretty cool.

All I know is my eyes want to eat that color all day long lol


On a side note: I finally swapped in that FWD distributor tonight! Gutted my current unit and installed said innards into the new one. The only deviation from standard procedure is the need to retard the distributor by one tooth, at tdc. This was the only way I could get mine to ~16 degrees, unjumped.


Heatshields and vertical wires, FTW!
