    Damn! I went away for a long time hoping to see a completed build when I came back in!!! All good though I'm glad you are delaying to make her something unique and special. Black Diamond is going to be so BAMF.

    Guys the cars legal ! Listen to this story ... yesterday I called DMV in the morning to find out where I needed to get my title changed to my name as there are only specific dmv's that can do so. The nearest one being an hour away so i drive the hour there and surprisingly welcome at the salvage desk by this very friendly black women the lady was awesome! Cracking jokes left and right just all around good mold which is surreal for a DMV employee lol anyway to cut to the chase I hand her my title and I guess she mistaken the title and assumed that I had bought a previous salvage title car that has been repaired and proceeded to print me a standard title with previous salvage history at this point I was a bit confused and wasn't going to say a word. She hands me the title and i politely ask her what my next step would be to redgester the vehicle which really is me calling the state DMV to have them inspect the vehicle to deem safe and road worthy as well as look at all my previous recipts to check for stolen parts for the repair. She tells me that I am all ready to be legal and drive it and i can redgester the car right then I wasn't going to argue with this I handed her the money and she handed me my plates I was in totally shock not only did I some how manage to avoid the state inspection but saved another 200 dollars of inspection fees and the hassle of driving to Trenton the capital! I couldn't have been happier! Saturday is the day boys! Paint here we come and its done! Im still unsure about the color I have the original raven black paint to do the car but the Rep is working his magic and trying hard to make black diamond happen so we will see either way ill be a happy guy having it done. Finally can start saving for them headers and a cam!

    what about making your own black diamond, shoot the car with 8555 as a base, then get your paint rep to sell you a half gallon of some corse metallic, mixed with pearl. vola.
    when i paint my customes vehicles and they want something different so i generally use a factory color as a base, and thrown on a flake/pearl as a mid, then hammer the car with clear.
    i get that it wont be the same as factory black diamond, but you will save a pile of coin if your paint rep cant get ya a deal on it.

    yup thats a great option if you want a single stage base, it would be great for repairs in the future. its actually a real nice color too.

    Frustrated .... After back and fourth saying im painting it black diamond and trying to get the paint i got tired of waiting so just said f*ck it and used the paint i had instead of waiting any longer and the money i saved ill put towards headers. So with out delay ... your everyday raven black. Im still happy with how it came out dont get me wrong.









    It still needs to be buffed theres a couple small dirt blemishes but the paint came out great.
    enjoy photo shoot coming soon !
