    quoted from this



    Color Combos
    Two-tone paint schemes have been growing in popularity, which makes picking the right paint doubly difficult. Traditional combos of neutral and primary colors are always safe, but not always the most interesting. Lately, silvers as well as oranges and coppers have been popular colors in two-tone jobs. Almost all the painters we interviewed identified Troy Trepanier as a master of mixing two disparate colors and making them work. Andre says that one of the tricks when using certain colors that could be overbearing is to use one or the other in moderation. Pete Santini recommends separating two strong colors with a neutral color (such as tan or black) in between, usually a pinstripe. This separates the colors but helps tie them together


    ok, now for pictures of what I was referring to

    on this, between the black and copper there is a yellow stripe

    not noticeable until you point it out

    I pulled these photoshops off another forum

    I agree I like the purple!! Now I left the pin stripe off the SS stripes because I wanted to be different.

    Now a purple pin stripe right in between the orange & silver NO space. Like the SS stripes on on the new camaros

    Dose that make sence??

    you have to do green. Its already decided for you. LOL


    It will look good any way you go with it. Good looking car. I must ad that i do like the split bumper but the full one is better if he is going to be driving it later on.
