Default Olympic Gold and Dover White?

The paint shop constantly tried to get me to switch colors to something else.

He said Gold and White?? then mumbled something. [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/hmmm.gif[/img]


What do you think?

they didn't think there was enough contrast between the plain white and the gold or the colors were too boring? they wanted to throw some blue tint in the white and maybe some metal flake and pearl flip flop in the gold. I would not have minded that but the kid stuck to his guns and the stock factory paint colors, (just applied in a different pattern)

I think it's a good combo.

Contrast! That gold and that white out in the sun will look great! Not too mention the green interior. I'm glad Mike stuck to his guns. Glad yooos guys kept da cah! Contrast yoooou don't need no stinking contrast.
