So I'm getting ready to paint the hood, bumper and grill white on my aspen RS, and I still can't decide exactly what i want to do. I have narrowed it to either..

A. Paint the center black and clear coat, leaving the scoop and vents white. and then paint every where from the lines out white. Then match the grill black on the inside, and white where the hood matches up.


or

B. Go for the clean, all white hood.. (this is actually my car... it is the only pic I have so far..)





any opinions are welcome:help:... i want it to look clean.. so i think i'm gonna have to go with all white.. but i wouldn't mind having a slightly different GM right now

If you go with a black center, I would recommend painting the top of the car black to match.
Also, some black would have to be on the back as well...

i do agree with zeropunk, it would look a lot better to do the whole center black so it matches up..

yeahh, i think i'm agreeing with everyone so far.. ppl have said they like the black hood now, and i almost got fooled into thinking it would look better.. they don't know what an all white impreza looks like tho..

all white it is! thanks for input

Kind of amazing but this paint scheme works on that car, IMO. But ZeroPunk is right, the roof and trunk would have to be painted black, with black trim on the red spoiler. Sort of an old school two tone scheme going on here. Whose car is this?

Don't do two tone on a white car, that will look like shit. Two tone with black only works on old school colors, like dark red or dark grey.

that's actually bigshizzle79's car, he has the Ask a painter/body man thread.. http://www.rs25.com/forums/showthread.php?t=41200&highlight=painter

His car gave me the idea since it does look good on the red, even without anything else black.. but I think every ones right, two tone black over white wont have the same effect.

although i did find this pic he photoshopped and i have to say, that looks tits!

Thanks bigshizzle again for the pics...
