New Paint Job


New Member
Just got an '88 Hatch. Engine and Transmission being pulled. The original color is Darkish Grey.

Question is.....go back to the original color? Or paint black? If I do black, I was thinking black wheels. Stay with the pony 5-star wheels? Or a different wheel? Black wheels?

Thanks for the feedback.

I don't really have a preference for your car, but I will add that the dark grey does look pretty sharp when shined up. I think that particular color gets a bad rap sometimes because an old, faded grey car doesn't look nice. But a nice, shiny example is totally different.

Here's my wife's 4runner after clay bar and hybrid ceramic spray coating. The color is similar. Screenshot_20210822-211841_Gallery.jpg
