ZTM Pearl 2016 Honda Civic EX-L

Found this scrolling about as I usually do. Done with AutoFlex Hypershift, colour name is ZTM Pearl. Looks real interesting. I've always been old school in the sense of I love an actually painted vehicle. Took me a while to get comfortable with this plasti-dip and vinyl wrapping stuff but I'm slowly coming around lol.

Thoughts once again ??

It takes a special kind of person to love custom paints like that and I am not one of them. That sort of rose shade in the third picture is nice, but the purple just makes it look like a giant grape.

I'm not sure if this is the same guy, but i know a guy on another forum, skittles, bought an energy green coupe and did the same thing to his. Wrapped the whole car in pearl purple. Not my cup of tea, and begs the question of why get energy green if you're going to cover it up... but to each his own.

I always wondered the same thing to.. getting a certain specific colour and then wrapping or plasti-dipping it. I guess they have their reasons. This one belongs to female but I think it was also energy green as well at the beginning !

But lmao a giant grape. That's kinda harsh

in the comments next to the pictures....one of them says 'looks great skittles'

so, probably the same guy/gal/person.....OWNER...that's the correct word...owner!

Sometimes you think a color looks great at first glance and then after starting at the same shade for a while you start to want something else. That would have been me if I got the green coupe.

I do believe skittles is a woman... or is the husband of the woman that actually owns the car. Very active on the other forum.

this is one of those colors where keeping the chrome trim helps, going black wasn't exactly the best idea. Keep chrome or have the chrome tinted with neochrome film. But overall I don't like this look at all, it looks too forced.
