Hey guys, well I need some of your help. I have a 01 Bonneville, It recently got into a accident and I'm getting a new door and panel for it and I'm going to need to paint the car. I don't know either to paint it silver again, or white, and black. I don't know what color would look the best. Also I was wondering what starting mods should I do to the engine? and were can I buy the parts? Thanks alot guys

yea I was leaning towards the silver again because I am getting rims for it even though black would look nice with the rims but I'm also getting my windows tinted which then i don't want the whole car being black cause of cops here.

so are you paying for a entire car paint?meaning door jambs,inside fenders etc.? because insurance will not pay to change the color. and being an 01 you may drop the value of the car down a bit with a paint job.
since the title will say silver/grey.

Think of all the work involved in changing it over to black. Take it from me, Black is super hard to keep clean!! and if you dont do it yourself, think of how much it will cost.

One day this winter, not long ago a silver bonne and an uh..uh.. was it white or brown....no..it was supposed to be black ... yeah.. silver and black bonnes were in my garage next to each other.

I want to drop a supercharger in it. But before I do that I want to do other things. Like pulleys, ait intake, and any other things I would need to have my car fast!! I really would like to be able and sit there and burn my tires to make some good smoke, so whatever you think I need to do that please let me know for my car! Also when I hit 110 mph the RPM'* go down its a rev limitor or somethin? how do I get that off?? Thanks guys!!
