    I think so. I didn't spray it myself, I just did a lot of the prep and the cut/polish after. I actually made them reblend a few places because it was a lot darker. the cans I've gotten from paintscratch.com were always a dead match though.

    btw, my car was partially painted with PPG paint as well, and it definitely came out darker than stock. Interesting. If I have it painted again, I'll try a different paint.
    any pictures? did you use urethane base coat and clear coat stages?

    I talked to my paint guy, he said that the paint used is "the new envirobase from PPG it's a mix from the factory paint code sprayed in waterbase base coat with a high solid clear coat.. we picked the prime alternate out of like 3-4 choices..so it shoul be real close to the factory color as we used the cars paint code.. the waterbase paints have a real high sparkle we find.."
    This stuff is really nice to shoot and finishes up well. Car looks great!

    Sweet looking car. I like the black contrast with that lip. I had black wheels on my car and I did not like but it works on yours.

    haha! Will do! I'll let you know how things go.

    I honestly have no clue.
    Thanks! I'll be back in that area this weekend so I'll have to swing by there. I'll let em know I got recommended by you...if that's alright of course.

    Also, did you know that a disc with a diameter of 5.5" fits very well in the middle of these wheels? :) It covers the multi lug, and simplifies the look. I made mine out of aluminum. (not wheels in sig)
    Yeah, I ordered mine in a rush (needed wheels) and all they had were black.

    I had no idea about the cover, but I don't mind too much. I'm inside the car most of the time.

    car looks SUPERB.
    They'll be replaced by ellipsoids when I have the extra cash, but right now any money I have is going towards the little Eaton M62 I have to put on.

    Thanks for the compliments!
