Im wanting to paint my car. currentily ive got the stock blaze red miata color and im not sure i want to sitck with it. Im going to add on a wisdom body kit and some D1 fenders. im doing all the body work myself and im going to spray it down with primer. Any suggestions on color? or should i stick with the stock red so i dont have to paint the door jams and under the hood?

Have you thought about the RS Aizawa blue. I've been wanting to paint my car off white/cream with orange flares (also HT orange and a few other orange accents).

If you are going to paint it, why not consider something really interesting?

Im a fan of Mazdas Laser Blue paint code (24A)

There is an example of this color over on m.net

*edit* Or as another thought... have you considered striping it??

velocity red X2
went to the paint shop today and the velocity red is an awesome color i must agree but its a 3 stage paint. =$$$ after this the paint man suggested a candy coat it was cheeper and really close to the same thing. still pretty high tho, think he said around 945 for all the paint, reducer, and hardner.

ok but I'd say Dark Cherry that the new Mazda 6 comes in is really nice or the Brilliant Black like the new NCs have.

thats for them to spray it.because the paint and reducers arent priced that high.is that "mazda" paint.because i painted my old car sciont tc blue.the paint only cost $80 for the gallon.it wasint genuine toyoa paint,but the same color and code.
