      it looks great . That is the color I was going to buy back in 2006. But I got my blue instead. Did YOU do the painting, or where did you take it? If you took it somewhere, what did it cost to paint? It isnt Maaco...is it?

      Thanks! Did it all myself with a $9.00 harbor freight gun. The paint was a bit spendy at $217 since it has pearl in it. I reshot the rear bumper as well not photographed. I wound up doing 2 coats of clear (after color sanding) as I had some orange peel on the hood and fender from the summer heat. Came out really nice, considering where it started.

      A few weeks after the facelift, I was made an offer I couldn't refuse, so I sold it. Will miss it, was a very good car while I had it. May get another one if the right deal comes along!
