Matt black mx3.



  • Thinking of doing this to mine, i keep seeing the odd scatch here and there on mine and was thinking of doing something mad like painting it over a weekend.

    was thinking either Matt black or gloss white?

    anyone got any pics of a matt black mx3?

  • Cant believe i've never seen this before!

    such a great build! i sent my indiglo badge and matts to him too! haha

    looks i'll matt blacks the way to go, it looks great!

    I think its staying for a bit!



  • I think satin black looks way better.
    Or, gloss white/black hood/black rims/black projectors

    Did this to my Civic also :D



    Miss this car to bits (that's why I whore it so much, a 2 year project sent to the scrapper! :( )



  • That civics awesome, i hope you kept the wheels!!

    theres one like that local to me.

    Shame it went to the scrappers.. Crash?

    Also, Mechanic, didnt realise you were local, i'm down the road in Colchester!

    Yeah, did mean to say it'd be satin black, not Matt, Hope to spend a whole weekend on it, prep the saturday, and degrease and spray the sunday!

    Would Rollering it on or spraying it on be better? i'm still quite new to spraying things, only really done wheels and small things before.

    :cry: I sold the wheels for £50 then found out they were compomotives and worth £300. I'm trying to find them again.



  • Oh man that sucks! i knew they were compos straight away!!

    although i did that with some Ronal R15's once :(

    spray it on dont roll it on

    just take your time



  • I'm a big fan of matte black :)

    cheap and easy to maintain… and I'm not a fan of gloss so it works out great! 8)

    Nah. I'd been doing it up for about 2 years, stripping it, spraying it and I was doing work to get it track ready.

    It had failed it's MOT before I started on it so I SORN'd it and started the work only to be made redundant. The decision was a hard one really but the sensible one at the end of the day, what with just getting a mortgage at the time and waking up every day for 3 months staring at a car I couldn't do anything with so I stripped it and sold it bit by bit until it was basically just the chassis and the unboltable bits of body.
