thanks for the compliment!
I painted the car myself...
i thought instead of painting the car like "every other car", id give it a shot and paint it Semi-gloss. Everyone seems to like it alot!

i would charge for JUST the paint job minus any body work......$1500-2000.

I've always had mixed feelings for newer cars clad in flat paint.

It can look good if the car looks like a track-only ride (i.e. several visible performance mods that would make it quite uncomfortable for a daily commuter)

But for the most part, Hondas don't really fall in the age range of vehicles that can wear flat-paint like a tuxedo...(Old Mercuries....classic muscle cars etc.)

The Accord is a clean-cut looking vehicle, it looks like a poser when placed in Goth attire.

Regardless, I would like to see more pictars.

I think it looks perfect the way it sits now. But one question... Why'd you make 2 of the exact same threads?

Flat black is not my thing but I would definitely get rid of the chrome if I were you. Looks great and stance is real nice.

you need a very aggressive kit, and setup to make that matte black look good. Right now, it just looks like a semi oem accord with a weird paintjob

I'm not so much into body kits, UNLESS it's clean and simple. I'm just not into the 'flashiness'. I would like to lower it another inch. It's got H&R's with KYB's right now. Any suggestions?

I am definitely going to paint the chrome trim. That was initially up in the air prior to painting the car. Im gonna buy a OEM set of headlights, and will LIGHTLY smoke them, and as far as lowering the car more.......i will do so as soon as the funds are available.
Thanks for you honest response guys!

Definately different, I always wondered what our cars would look like vinyl wrapped matte black. I guess you can say that this is close enough for an example.

Blackhouse the headlights (no smoke)
Finish the OEM lip kit
drop another inch or so
