Default What color?

I am buying a 1992 Bonneville, (the one that I asked if had a supercharger), and it has the hiddeous green on it, which is peeling and fading. And I would like some feedback as to what color I should paint it. Thanks in advance.

P.*., does the SSE have headlight washers? And, look closely at the back of the car... is it just me, or is the exhaust tip missing? Another thing, which of the Bonneville rims would look best on this car, and don't forget about the color. Here are some pics...

They usually do have the headlight washers. If you look on top of the bumper, you should see the nozzles pointing at the headlights.

EDIT: Yes it does, if you look at the black strip on the top of the bumper they are right there. I think there was some special way to operate them, but don't know what it is.

Yes there is an exhaust tip missing. One of those shouldn't run you too much to replace though.

So you can buy them independently? By the way, this obviously related directly to the Bonneville, but can you drive out of state on a learners permit?

Probably can't get them individually but a set shouldn't run ya too much and them you'll also have a spare just in case. On the learners permit I'd check with your state laws to be sure. We have members from several different states so what might work in their state may not be legal for yours.

According to the manual, if you pull the windshield washer controller towards you, it activates it, instead of pushing it away from you to wash the windshield.
