I was thinking about having my element painted a different color to make it stand out from the grees, blue, black, gray and red. Anyone know of a good nat'l painting place. Any suggested colors that will turn heads?
Wouldn't go to a nation wide paint place, ie. maaco, earl scheib, etc. Find a high quality local shop and look at their work, not just pictures either. Prep is everything for a good paint job, those national cut rate companies do very little prep and the paint jobs can have a short life. I would expect to spend 2-3k dollars or more on a good job, though an element may be less (less sheet metal, unpainted plastic).
OMG The Richard Simmons E is too freakin' funny.....but I am surprised it doesn't have the E wearing a tank top with lots of flair!
There is something to be said about the E coming in yellow or red.....my husband has already said that if the E came in either one of those colors he would buy, but since it doesn't he is a bit torn on color, and between the E and the Civic or Accord.
I also think that a DARK Metallic Deep Purple would look awesome, but that is my opinion! And hey what about a deep metallic gunmetal gray....then the plastic panels would just slightly contrast....I think it would be sweet!
I wish I was brave enough to go get my E painted, not that I don't love my EBP, but I just think it would be cool to even further customize my E!
