Hi guys. In case you havent noticed there are many ppl who paint their cars with different colours (usually 2). Either the top half and bottom half or some on the hood etc. Anyone know any nice paint design to choose from before i do it for real? Obviously this is to avoid making a mess out of the original paint and also some design may look nice on paper or small screen but when it comes to the real thing it may differ.

Grey & white colour can match any other colour easily. Let say if your car is a yellow one, then you may paint the bottom half with grey colour. There is a contrast between the two colour, one stand out, another dim, adapted to the concept of Tai Chi, Ying & Yang. ph34r.gif

Yes, I like this combination. Blue upside and silver downside. Beside silver, you may also consider metallic grey.
for light blue, you may match it with dark grey, for deep blue, you may match it with light grey. Hope you will
be kind enough to show us your car photo after your car colouring project is done. laugh.gif

Premium paints are worth the investment if you plan to keep the car for a long period of time. You can customize the design according to your choice too. Due to high car paint costs, it is always advisable to opt for paint protection film either when you purchase a car, or when you get your new paint job completed.
