hey dudes. my car is an ugly stock color (my friends call me the buger-green hatch driver) and i hate it with a passion. i really want to paint it but a pro-job is a bit out of my reach right now (im saving for swap, parts, etc.). do any of you know of any "how-to's" on painting your own car? also, any sites / shops where to get good quality / reasonably priced paint products?? thanks for the help

is your hatch a 96? If it is, then its Midori green. If it is Dont paint it! Midori hatches are pretty rare cause the color was only offered that year, like the 00 white hatches.

Yea theyre pretty rare to find. AAnyways, if you hate the color, i guess paint it. I like that color, and its sets you apart from other civics.

Paint it

If you paint it, are u also going to paint the inside. Painting it isnt ez as u think. but i think u should sand it and then take it to maaco. :thumbs up:
