Well, i still wanna be stealth for local rice

So maybe it would be better if it was gold, it would look nice and compliment but not stand out a lot like the red. Hmmm I dunno yet.

I'd have to say red or gold up front and black or silver on the rear. L8TR

true, ifya dont wanna stand out as much go gold and it WILL match better. YOu have the gold badges and hood emblem right? I will tell you you are gonna play hell trying to find gold caliper paint before 6/30. I heard G2 just came out with some gold (i found it on ebay) but www.folia-tec.com was the main supplier and that wont be here untl 6/30...
