im not big into the crazy showcar stuff, but i always liked kawasaki green and white. its outrages, but clean. baby blue aint too bad either though. i cant beleive you are talking about painting your si already, man. you must have some serious $$$$

That would be hot. Go with the baby blue and a carbon fiber hood.

Dude dont get baby blue on your new car, thats a girls color, get PY or something, or CY.

thanks for the responses....... but i got a estimate and it would be about 3,000 for the paint job....

$3000 for a quality paint job is a good price!...did that include the door sills and engine bay?

3000 is pretty good, i spent like 5000 on paint and bodywork on my stealth

Are they going to sand it down and everything? What kind of warranty? That's pretty cheap. Sounds fishy. :)

I think that you'd get tired of driving a baby blue car every day. Plus imagine the BS some people will give you for the color. Unless you can look at the color for years, I wouldn't recommend it.

Hey CleanBlack, tell me how you like the coil-overs whenever you get them installed. I'm looking into getting some. What's the range? 0-2"?

It's 0"-4" on most GC applications. However many people can't turn the wheels all the way at 4", so it's usually less. I'm going for 2" at first, and once I get new shocks, probably 3". :D

Sweet. Post pics when you get 'em installed.

i have ground control and they are great........ it ride a little rough, but so do all coil overs.. i have it dropped 3.5 and i dont rub or anything and it looks sweet......... and yes the 3,000 for the paint job includes all door jams and under the hood..... but i have had alot of negative things about baby blue.... so i just might worry about different mods now...

Are you having any camber or shock problems yet with it being dropped that low? What size rims do you have? That's good that's it's not rubbing.

I wouldn't repaint the car, it's looks tight as hell just the way it is!!
