View Full Version : repainting my car

03-27-2008, 10:07 AM
I got an awesome deal to repaint my car. I orignally wanted to just respray the back end of my car. i think it was repainted and the clear was not as durable and a bunch of scratches started to apear just on that section. I don't know whats up. It looks like a cat clawed all over it. Well i might consider a color change if I really fall in love with a color. I'm kinda leaning towards white. I would like for it to be and OEM color from VW, porsche, lambo, ect. Something in the vag family. Any ideas?

I dont know what exact car to match it to, but pearl white looks soooooooo good.!

isn't your car santorin now? are you pulling the motor to do the bay and jambs? too drastic of a color change will look like poo. your name might be poopie but you don't want your car to reflect that.

what about helios blue from the mk2 and mk5 jetta? or nogaro blue, because a4's didn't come in that.
"night blue pearl" from the S8, or mugello blue pearl from the RS4

in the event i'm wrong, ibis white would look real sharp.

Yeah, you'd better be pulling the motor and stripping the interior if it's gonna be a different color. Otherwise, just get a respray. Mismatched bay and jambs ftl!

The Right Way To Do It Is All Glass And Door Carriers Must Be Pulled Out. The Engine Bay Who Really Gives A Shit About That Unless You Show It.
