the best thing in my opinion is to bu your own paint go to a body shop or paint shop and tell them to dp it for you, here's a website for cheap paints www.hokpaint.com, theres all sorts of paints there, i even got my car paint from there to paint my celica and the results are brilliant.

I'm going to move your post to our regular Paint and Body Repair Forum in the Maintenance & Repair Board. This board is strictly for custom stuff.

j4nier....go to hothues.com, (dupont) and it's a virtual paint site and gives you several cars as models to try out different paint colors and graphics too..fun to play with also !!
But i have a question for you. what would it be worth to you if you could buy a pre-designed "custom" paint scheme for your car and apply it yourself in a few hours? ...this is a nascar style "racewrap" that can be removed or easily replaced if damaged and does not effect the paint under the "wrap" design.??? I have pictures of this if you want to see them, email me and i will send you a few to look at.
This is something I am working on now, as an artist it is an exciting challenge to see what can be done. I am not trying to solicit business, but I know that guys like you are looking for a way to "customize" your car with unique paint schemes and it's something I am interested in as an artist. Just an idea, let me know what you all think of it, ok?
#52 of 93 I want to paint my car
Jan 02, 2006 (1:45 pm)
HI! I just bought an 01 audi tt, and it's black- I'm ok with it but I'd rather it not be. I would like to do a paint job where it looks one color from one way/ and another color another way- red and orange. I would like to know if anyone can recommend what to look for when selecting someone to do it and how much it might cost me. Thankies!

I would personally advise you to keep black, unless you have EXTREMELY deep pockets. To do it right would require you to remove every body panel on the car, remove the engine so you can paint the engine bay and remove most of the interior and trunk pieces to paint over the black. Reason for this is so when you open the door on your nice new paint job, the inside of the doors aren't black. Also the color changing paint is around (or used to be around) 800 dollars a quart. Just a few things to think about before you decide to do it.
