What color 'cudas on black?

Post by joseph_hac » Mon May 19, 2008 12:37 am

I have been going back and forth for a while on whether I should get rally or 'cuda stripes on my R/T. Right now, the 'cudas are winning out since I can install them myself and save a hell of a lot of money. The only question is, what color? The two main options I think I have are flat black or silver. The silver would stand out a lot more than flat black, but the flat black's ghosted affect looks good to.

Here are a pic of my ride to help the decision...

Take your molding off the side first! Personally the rally stripes are overdone. Go with flat black 'Cudas if you have to get anything.

Yes they are. I couldn't find other pictures but those are flat black, it's the interior lighting where the pictures were taken that makes them appear another color. If you click on the link there are a few pictures where you can clearly see they are flat black.

So I guess its flat black FTW! I'm surprised nobody liked the idea of silver. I thought it would have matched my wheels nicely (which won;t be PC'ed black. Not a fan). I will be giving a go at removing my side moldings. I'm just a bit afraid because of the horror stories I have heard.

For reference, here is a pic of flat black on black 'cudas (hot linked from revolution-motorsports.com).

Anyone change their mind?

Why does it say you have a SX 2.0 R/T below your name? O_o

Also, blacked out/stealth is way too overdone, IMO. A good looking car needs contrast, which can easily be found with the wheels.

2003-2005 Neons in Canada were known as SX 2.0s.

I was going to suggest blue Cuda's but obviously I'm :tardbang: so I withdraw that idea. :lol:
