My car goes in the shop wednesday, and was considering shooting a pearl to give me a little bit of change... What color pearl would go good with the DSM, if any at all?

blueish pearl with a hint of purple
That might look nice!

Also I like the gold idea.

If it maters, my wheels, calipers, engine covers, grilles, etc. will all be gunmetal!

I took off the gas door today, in which the shop is gonna spray a sample of each color listed above to give me an idea of what it will look like over the DSM.

Car goes in the shop tomorrow... yipee!

Well... I will see what the pearls look like tomorrow, but after talking with the shop owner tonight, we might be doing a full color change.

Now I have to either find the time to pull the motor, or find someone that knows what they are doing that wont charge an arm and a leg!

If I do a full color change, I am leaning toward a candy red or orange, or a burnt orange color! I will look more into the color once I fine a reasonable price to get the motor pulled/installed... So far I have been quoted $1500, but that was the acura dealer, and was my first quote.

Are you gonna get the glass pulled, and interior stripped too?

I already stripped the interior... Everything under the hood and all windows will be pulled. It will be done right!

I got a red pearl on my DSM, and it looks awesome! I've had nothing but compliments on it. DSM is so classy if you stick with it, any color pearl would look good except white. The white didn't look good at all to me for some reason...Good luck with the car.
