Well I spent 7 hours on my car.

It started like this:


And ended like this:




I painted the wheels first and then washed and waxed the car, then vacuumed the inside. I'm done for a while. I need a drink! [cheers]

Thank you. I certainly have plans. Its too boring other wise. I just don't have the money to shell out. I'd love to get a hold of a set of EAP wheels, an SRI, and an exhaust. I'm not sure if I want to drop it only because I do commute a bit in the car. I find the suspension fine for my tastes. I want to up grade the sub and the speakers eventually too. A set of the black halo headlights (im afraid to ruin these by painting them black.) Oh, and a mach lip wouldnt look to bad on it. Simple cheap stuff for now.

Black wheels work on Red. integrate instead of clash.
I'm not sure why it always photographs more red [confused] but yeah, it is orange. I work with someone with an orange Kia Rio and I noticed that hers is more orange, while mine looks a little more red.

metallics ... unless the sun hits it right the color varies ... that's why we like them.
I bet it never looks orange when its cloudy.

well ... black goes better with a orange that looks like red anyway. I couldn't even get photoshop to color balance that to what I would call an orange. would be my second choice after candy red.

There is a better pic of it under lights at a gas station.

To me it looks orange all the time but i think that is because i know my car.
Yes i know the bumper is a slighty different color as well.

I dig it. And you should definitely consider a 1.5" - 2.5" drop. It's not as bad as most people think. I commute a lot in mine and there has never been anything that I felt like I wished I wasn't lowered.
