  • Need your opinions.....

    It has been running through my mind for quite some time now that I might like to two-tone my car. Doing so would require me to remove the vinyl, since the whole car has to be clear coated.

    I love my vinyl. I know a lot of people don't because hey, it's vinyl. But, I need some opinions (thanks to Tek for helping me on this, and quickly I might add....

    How my car is now:



    What I am considering doing. Keep the bottom silver, and do the top in a metallic blue (the roof would be blue as well, Tek didn't dothat very small spot). It would be a high metallic silver, very shiny (large flake) :

                both are original, not a fan of vinyls or suede, but you made both look sweet..

                i like the paint better, the photoshop i dont think does justice to the paint job that would be done..

                if it were my car i would leave it just cause of the money to paint.. put that into the turbo you had been thinking about [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/biggrin.gif[/img]

                      i kinda like that idea

                      from top to bottom

                      blue
                      silver
                      blue again

                      other than that i would like to see it flipped with blue on top. i know its a photoshop but it still dosn't look right

                      its my opinion and not my car

A Chevrolet 5.7-liter LS1 V8 with this much specific power (horsepower per cubic inch) would be making 2,137 hp

                            blue seems like a heavier color than grey so it should sink to the bottom sorta like water and oil [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/wink.gif[/img]

                            just kidding, cant wait to see what you decide

                              It's not grey, its bright silver. Tek made the photo black and white apparently.
