Paint Scheme Thoughts (Pics)

Hello I wanted to do something different with the paint job on my lude and was thinking of somthing like the pics below. Opinions are appreciated. Im not to excited about the fake lines that divide the two colors since theres no real edge where its divided. I was thinking Red and black but wouldnt know which order top to bottom. Or possibly even a silver with a black top would look smoother of a look. Just looking for thoughts on the scheme like does it look too fake? Car has the same BK on it but with stock spoiler. Thanks

Re: Paint Scheme Thoughts (Pics)

I think it looks pretty good but may attract the wrong kind of attention, don't know what your area is like. The silver and black or silver and dark gray would look nice and a little more subtle.

Re: Paint Scheme Thoughts (Pics)

the way i see it.. the 4th gen being such a "smooth" car with very very few hard angles. So i think that the lines sorta through the body lines of the car off. try like a fade from one color to another. that may look better. But elude is right... a solid black would look good =)

Re: Paint Scheme Thoughts (Pics)

Mind made up after sleeping on it. Its gonna be the stock Red cause Black will be too hard to take care of with the little bit of garage kept time it sees. Gonna get that black in there with a CF Hood soon tho :) Thanks for all the input fellas off to pick up the lude then drop her off for paint......After I put my JTC SS that came in yesterday in :)

Settled on this:

Re: Paint Scheme Thoughts (Pics)

Hope your doing it right and doing the bay..door and trunk jams. Nothing looks trashier than opening the hood or door and having it be a different color.

Re: Paint Scheme Thoughts (Pics)

I agree with anti-two toning a 4th gen, just looks funky.. whether blue, red, black, white.. whatever! its gonna look amazing as long as u do it right, like someone said above lol, nothing uglier than opening a blue car to see white door jams haha.. Im guessing from the pics that u have the same body kit? or was that your car in the first post? I wanna see what your workin' with! Show some before then after pics plz

Re: Paint Scheme Thoughts (Pics)

I agree that the 4th gen body is too smooth for two tone.. And the only two tinned 5th gen I liked was white with the top black..

That viper blue is gonna look sick! Can't wait for pics of the finished product!

Re: Paint Scheme Thoughts (Pics)

Yupp there doing the door jams the pearl blue and under the hood flat black to cut costs cause ill probably go with the Vader CF hood(if i can ever find one for a decent price,or just wait to save). Ill make side by side Before and After pics for you all. Thanks for lookin guys... Should be back on friday(it feels like forever, but ive still got the 2011 Camero im raping everyday and it feels good lol) then will do the sexy photo shoot. I am glad i didnt go with the two tone as well.

Re: Paint Scheme Thoughts (Pics)

Good choice on the blue. Not only is blue sexy but it makes your car go faster and generally more awesome. This has been proven by science.

Its true. Why do you think the sky is blue? Blue is all like **** you other colours and it beats the **** out of them and then speeds his way into our sky.
