Default I need paint!!!

I would really like to have my bonnie painted the only thing is i dont have much money. people have suggested a macco paint job but i dont want it to look like crap. another thing i was thinking about would be color. i was thinking about leaving the bottom half black since theres no damage to the paint from the middle of the door down and then go with some kind of silver for the rest any ideas or suggestions????

Actually, I think the 87-91 with the blockier body style looks good two-tone like that. I bet we could get someone to photoshop the look for you if you post a good pic of your car.

side shots are usually the best, but I might be able to do an angled shot as well. I'm always up for a photoshop, as you can tell by my other chops like the limo.

IMO, if you have little money but really want it painted id go the Macco route (this is coming from a guy that hates macco)

also for a black silver two tone... the black on top looks WAY WAY batter Just my opinion of course

definitely. two tone is EXCELLENT. the silver adds quite a bit of something to the car as a whole. personally i think just about any color with silver two tone is good. Even black and silver would look fantastic. I believe the OE color used on our gen is Bright Silver Metallic.

Quite nice.
