lowered with some more green accents(mirrors, trunk lip, etc) would really pull the look together! I'm glad I'm not the only one doing "crazy" colors. I can't stand all the boring folks on this forum with standard colored everything.

Not true at all.

You asked for people's opinion, I gave mine... Sorry if I hurt your feelings.

He's just an old man. Leave him to his thoughts.

OP maybe the pics dont do it justice but if the plasti dip was a shade darker (which it probably is) then that is a cool colour combo
