Go for it! It's just paint and time, if you don't like it after you do it change it or sell it. I was thinking matte dark brown wheels or bright orange, red or yellow would look good.

I saw one locally, but it was a total beater with a massive fart can, and smashed up bumpers.

Done right, it could look sick, done wrong, nty.

^^ This, would look great if done right. Vinyl wrap is always an option as an alternative to paint.

I saw that looking for an example it looks great. I think im going to go with a simmilar green. High Gloss black rims and trim with red tipped exhaust though.

^that looks awesome. The rivoted-splitter on the front completes the look. The only thing missing is a nice set of coilovers.
