What's the name of the paint you got for that red? That matched RJT pretty well.

1) thanks for the compliments
2)yes RS emblems are such a easy custom to look so good
3) hadn't thought about the optimus prime but it figures since my license plate is TRNSFRMN lol
and 4) its duplicolor metalcast red paint pick it up at napa, autozone ect, they only work good on metal that is already chrome, or shiny

if your looking for the anodized look like mine i'd say blue or red, maybe orange, white would be hot but it wouldn't really stand out
