Looks good. I do agree arctic white isn't the best choice. There's a lot of better looking whites than that one. I painted a cavalier that color and it just looked plain to me. But each his own. If you're happy with it then that's all that matters.

Only $400 for paint and clear. That is some cheap stuff because white is the most expensive color there is. My clear alone was $500.

Wait a second.

So you just had the entire car painted white for $1600 including paint?! Even the fact that you paid wholesale for the paint, how in the world does this only come out to $1600?

Looks great. Only difference I would've entertained is perhaps making the side mirrors black. Looks great though.

Shot out to Hesperia as well, I used to live there. It was probably a much smaller town then though.

That paint job is super clean brah. I've always been a sucker for a GTO in white. I'd need a pic from a higher elevation to really get a feel for the roof, but as long as you like it!

I love the white too, I've always loved white on cars, its just a bitch to keep clean lol. Not sure I care too much for the black roof. It doesn't look bad, just wouldn't have been my choice. Paint job looks good.

Looks great! I'd talk to your friend and see if maybe he can paint those mirrors for you.

Before taking the leap on getting the side mirrors painted, try plastidipping them in black that way you can see if you like them. I wouldn't commit to painting them or even buying another set unless you are sure. I dipped my side mirrors black as a temp solution and I like them.

Not as bad as I thought, actually looks good, would work perfect on the white.
