So yea i finally decided to begin painting away the greyness, however i actually have grown quite fond of the grey color, but heck it looks a little tacky. Since I work next to a body shop i do all my own prepping and get it painted for free...don't know why i didn't do this sooner.
Anways, just a simple question for those of you who have match painted your whole car or had it all one tone since you got it, would it be better to leave the rear diffuser black as I've seen on some cars or should i match paint everything? BTW my car is white and no i will not be getting any m3 bumpers or m sideskirts, just leaving it stock and painting it.
if you are going to body match anything it should be the molding around the car. Along with the door handles. I'm getting mine done with in the next week. i'll post pic's. As far as the rear defuser leave it black. It matches the front bumper lip.
My 92 is a dark silver and instead of body-matching it, I went with a flat black. I also filled in the crease that follows the door line. It looks pretty slick, but I have to get a pic of it up.
I think that doing the contrast thing looks way better. The white car from above looks good, but if those skirts were black IMO would better.
And leave the rear valance black, too.
Thanks for the opinion everyone, and I decided to keep the rear diffuser/valance? black. And Wonderboy I have seen very nicely done E36's with the molding and everything painted white, but personally i like a little bit of contrast as well, decided to keep those black. Hopefully I'll have it done by tuesday, today i got the bondo on the small scratches, sanded it down, and it's all primered.
BTW anyone have all their roundels on their car including the wheel caps white/black, i think i might want to do that as well.
