    Painting my car

    So one tried to break into my car the other day at school and they scratched the hell out of my door . So since I go to an automotive school with an autobody shop, I should get it painted and fix while im there, I only have to pay for the paint. The only thing is that I can not decide on the color. I was thinking like a GUNMETAL color would be nice. n e imput that you guys have would be great.

    What school do you go to? There's this really cool green color I think in the pics gallary, sounds like it would be ugly but it looks really good, it's a very light green

    he means hes gunnna do it himself cause he goes to autmotive/painting school, and all he will have to pay for is the paint. hmm long as you are a good painter and have faith that you can do it. go for it show us pictures when you are done.

    I went to wyo tech for painting, all of us learned how to paint while there and all of the cars came out great. If it is anything like that they will have an instructor in there with you telling you what you can do better, and help you along the way.

    Gunmetal for sure. If mine ever has to get painted for whatever reason, that's that route i'd go for sure. Or maybe be the only dude on the block with a sonic yellow blob-eye.

    The school that I go to is Baren Instutite of Automotive Technology. Yes the teacher is always there and would not give back a crappy product. I hope. But do you guys know where I could get the paint code for gunmetal?
