    i've also been throwing around the idea of white frame, white front and back main plastics, and black accessories, black rims and hubs, etc...sounds like it could look sick.

    ya i tried it in paint, but since the pics are so grainy, it's not as easy as using a fill color, you have to erase the whole sections and refill, i tried, and failed misserably lol. hope you have better luck, thanks for attempting

    So i've made my decision, white frame, white carbon fiber plastics, black a-arms, springs, and wheel hubs, with black and chrome rims, should look pretty sick, thanks for the input guys, i'll post up pics as the job progresses, should get the powdercoating complete in a week or two.
