:headbang:Ok so I need some help my b2 is the blue and white color I paid 700$ for it and it needs some serious body work. I want to paint it flat black and keep my white middle and get the blue and white stripes back and place them in the same spot as they were I have never seen a b2 like this if anybody could give some feed back and possible pictures on how it would look I would appreciate it. also my wheels have some rust spots and I thought for the time being until I can get new wheels I would paint them flat black I didn't know if that would look good for the time. that's all I post for now but if yall could help me out and tell me how this looks I really appreciate it thank yall... keep in mind im only a college student and have already put tires it so I don't have much money.

There is a forum here you can ask photochop gurus to do this, also flat black on rims suck... go satin.:icon_thumby:

Yea in the TRS Photo and Video galleries is a sub forum for photochopping. Go there and ask and the folks will hook you up. Mind you its a low priority thing.

The cost to have it painted will be more than you paid for the vehicle. I was told it would cost around $1200 to paint mine which is yellow/cream. But that's after about $2000 in body damage repairs. Not worth it to me, I'll drive it till it completely falls apart as $3200 is about half of what I make in a year.

Why would you fill in rust with bodyfiller? Because you like doing this work over again down the road??

for the time being i cut it out down to the bare metal with a grinder and took some rust neutralizer and killed the rust that was left than put the body filler in there, but when i can get back home im going back to my hs and putting new metal on there its just a quick fix for the time being so it doesn't look bad until December, for right now since im in school and not working im just lookin for the quick fix

Sorry took so long to find this, for some reason my computer doesn't show updated posts sometimes.

Yes, I make about $7-10 grand a year. Goes really far for doing anything useful.....NOT!!!!

30 Hours a week $8/hr. Not even gonna get started. Sick of people putting other's down just because they aren't as well off as others.
