Negative panda? Sounds cool. Black and white seems played out, throw some grey instead of white. I'm having mine painted this spring Honda millennium silver metallic.

I've seen 'reverse Panda' Levin models with black and grey, looked pretty good. Go for it, you can always re-paint it!

unfortunatly I hit a guard rail on the 8th a week after getting the car, and the front is kinda fucked. so i gotta do something with that, so i will be doing the body kit, but if i need to i can do fabricating myself. so the front bumper fenders, side skirts and back bumper have to go on. i cant find anything out here where i am at

Check this out boss: http://www.pandagarage.com/products/ae86.html

Stock parts & bumpers and such. 86's in my mind should not have kits. Maybe a little lip at the most. But to each their own, sorry to hear about the crash. That sucks.
