    I was really considering black but body work isn't reaallllyyy my thing lol I have the usual honda cancer rust on the rear quarter (its starting to bubble) and the hatch itself has rust under the center plate. I wanna fix the quarter but id have to get it done. What's weird is im a badass painter but I can't sand a panel smooth to save my life lol.

    Possible colors:
    Nighthawk black pearl
    Championship white
    Midnight purple
    Burgundy
    or leave it SI blue

    Ok so dilemma I sent my crank out to be poilshed but the shop wants to have it turned. I don't wanna remove material. There's only like 2 lil wear marks on it barely enough to catch your nail on so anyone have input on if I should just polish it and hope it comes out or get a new crank and bearings all together
