what do yall think????

i was thinking about just painting the car flat black just like the STi on the cover of sport copact. i was thinkin' it would look good i was wondering what yall think. it would match my bike that is flat black with with flat lime green ZX6R, and Kawasaki factory stickers. i heard that the flat paint look is the "in" look. so what's your take on the situation. tell me what yall think about what paint jobs should look like.

flat black only looks good on old hot rods not new "tuner" cars.

I even think the STI on the cover of that mag looks like crap (sti is sweet, paint is shit). I remember the flat paint and primer thing was in style in the early 90's and it didn't last long then why would they try to bring it back now.

^^^^ funny.

It would look pretty bad IMO, like those cavalier's booting around with the home-made body kits waiting to get painted (bondo and primer look).....

Not for me, but yeah.....
