I'm thinking about a paint change. I have a friend who's dad owns a autobody shop here in ohio and can get a great deal on paint. I know you'll never get as good a paint job as factory without paying through the nose but i want something different.
What do you think....
Only mine would be the champagne on bottom and black on top. Black Rims too.
All feedback would be greatly appreciated and considered in my decision.
thanks for your input thats what i was hoping to get some peoples opinion on two tone. I find it hard to believe 18 people viewed this and no one had an opinion...LOL! I hope others find the words to express their views.
lol thanks....I think i would like it but do not want to make it look to much like a show car. I think the maibach is awesome and classy with two tone so I think i can handle it. Just wanted everyones opinion.
Champaign and black should still be pretty classy, what changes things is where you go from there, what wheels you get, if you make the interior a little over the top, it's more what you put on it than the color that makes it classy and tasteful or not. To me, the first pic isn't classy at all, the second pic is, it looks like a two tone combo like the Seville elegance in the '80s. More like maybe a rare factory option IMO.
I agree with Benzilla.
The first doesnt work for me. Looks ok and all, but I prefer the second. Also agree with him sayin its your car and do what you want.
But if it opinions you want then there are three right here.
Talkin about the second pick.
Wife says have seen them like that and it looks like it just came of the line and someone forgot to remove the paper.
Mother in-law says the same.
I think the second pic looks great.
But you did say that you would be reversing the colors.
The champagne on the bottom and black on the top.
I dont know about that. I think that would look wrong.
Dont think Ive ever seen anything with the lighter on the bottom.
Looks like they didn't remove the paper? I thought it was silver, not white.
I agree with you about the black being on the top, to me, if there's a darker color on top of a lighter color, the top looks too "heavy" to me, you know what I mean? Like the darker color should be on the bottom to "support" the lighter color, but I think thats just some little quirk I have.
But another thing to thing about is that you can see dust, swirl marks, and other imperfections ALOT easier on black, so a big black hood will be way harded to keep looking mint than a champaign hood, see what I'm saying?
just my opinion, either will look fine, but thats just how I feel.
Thanks for pointing that out. I never seen anything remotely close to looking right with a darker color on top! I guess since its already champagne i really could just paint the bottom instead.
I wasn't planning on any crazy 22 inch spinners or nothing. Just some chrome or black 18" or 20". with black on bottom I think the black rims might be too much maybe a set of DTS Chrome rims.
