    Got the Fender Flare paint color code.

    Yes is, some new info as well. The paint is a perfect match if you use a clearcoat touch up as well. Just touch up the scratch with the medium platinum, let iy dry and them use some clearcoat.

    Shocks for front end

    So Rsx's are out. A Question for you did you get the Rsx's 2" longer than stock? And Did they clear the front CV shafts? Do you think the 5000's would be better... thats if they fit. I am on the highway 60% and on gravel and backroads the rest of the time, what are your thoughts?
