So I was gonna paint my mudguards soon but since Basque Red Pearl isnt a loud color should i paint it the same body color OR should I paint it black to match my 5% tint?

well the mud guards come in a shitty black. turns grey over time and weather. I live in indiana so weather hits harsh and my mud guards arents really the black i want. If i did make trhem black it'd be the same black as the body paint on the accords.

BUT im deciding if i want a nice shiny black or a body color match

Are you going to paint over the texture or sand it down?

im gonna sand it down and paint it. someone did a video tutorial on youtube with his accord coupe. it looked nice. and i'm just gonna paint the outside. why paint the part thats gonna get dirty?

i'm gonna use the extra paint to color my engine cover, sway bar, and my calipers.

Make sure to use a high build primer, you will be there a while trying to even out the texture, its a pain =(
