right now my car is black, but i'm looking to repaint it soon.. any suggestions on a color.. right now i'm thinking silver with metalic flakes.. because the black is showing way to much road wear from pebbles and shit.. :evil:

Make it a uniqe color, but one that doesn't stand out like Pikachu Type R yellow, or barf green. But not plain crappy silver that EVERY eclipse has. Or just don't drive where there are a lot of pebbles. Go to the body shop and ask to see some custom PPG colors.

yeah yellow and greens don't appeal to me too much.. i was thinking of that orange metallic color that was on like 15 cars at the car show, but i think i would get sick of it in a week..
i dunnO any suggestions are welcome, but i know what you all think it's my car my choice just looking for some input..

The 99-00 Civic Si electric blue would look pretty good.

I would go with a chrome illusion paint job. Not to many people have it. It flip flops 10 different colors, but it is expensive.

seriously, just get a respray in black. black looks wicked and it wont cost you an arm and a leg to respray a coat or 2. its much easier than changing the colour completely.

Yeah, but the only problem with black is that you need to wash it every 6 hours, especially down where I live.

black is so worth it....but if not try somethin new like a deep deep shimeering red or green...blue is sweet too
