Color scheme opinions?

I'm looking to start getting a color scheme going for my Prelude because I'm wanting to get some custom vinyls. Here's a picture of it to see what you guys might think would be good on it


I'm not wanting to go with black and red because around here you see that WAAAY too much.

No111!!! Blacks gross on red. Bright and dark dont contrast well. I have a red lude too, going with buddyclub white rims with red blox lugnuts to highlight the red. Carbon fiber hood is iffy, still shin with the option, i'd have white or red pins in it. Interior im keeping full black stock at the moment. Engine bay higlights wil be blue. Along with dash light colors.

I actually think that would look pretty good.

My thoughts on vinyls were something goin from the fender up by the headlights and kinda be 2 stripe kinda things wrapping around eachother going all the way back. but i'm not completely sure

Re: Color scheme opinions?

Imo i like the red with black(if you dont go with a CF hood and trunk lid) and i think something close to what Terror is going for would be like the pic i attached. I like visual aids so sorry if im always posting pics of what im talkin about. Its the almost the same scheme im going with except the white rims.
