Default sorry it took so long: after accident pix/Flint Mica Paint Job

Hi guys!

I finally had time to take pix of the GS after the accident last year. New stuff includes:

New Paint job: the only 99 GS3 with flint Mica
New Rims: the stockers were stolen from my own home... so i had gotten a deal from a friend who was selling their rims for cheap... had to jump on it.





the real color is hard to see. Its a really dark grey with shimmery sprinkles in it. It looks cool. But not as agressive as when my car was black. enjoy.

I must agree with you on the color you choose I like it a lot. What paint did you use on the car?

Thumbs up Flint Mica Paint Job.

From the pics it looks good already. But I bet it looks even better in person. Good job on the color choice.

I've always wondered why that color hasn't been a standard offering for the GS. I believe the GS300 SD model came in that color (or one pretty similar to it), didn't it?
