Not a fan, sorry. It's like putting steel and copper together in my mind: something is corroding my brain cells. A beautiful, shiny, metallic tint coat with a drab lower piece that is over 50% of the car just doesn't go well together.

If you like it, tho, that's all that matters.

I guess originality is played out then.
I and everyone else at the car show yesterday loved it. The satin and gloss mix goes great IMO.

all opinions though and I respect yours

Not liking how it is layed out up front. Like how the whole bumper cover is. Would look better with a straight line around that area. Overall, not bad.

No sir. Took the inserts off and they will be painted the red to match the top. And I am also painting the black lips to match the red It should set it off!

Dude who are we kidding... this is woeful. Custom paint jobs are meant to add something to the vehicle.. not take away.
I don't even know how you could save this car at this point... the black looks like it's winning the two tone war and will eventually eat the rest of the paint.
I liken this paint job to a short dude in a club wearing knock off shades.

If you like it then that's great. More power to ya...

And what's with the front end.... you could've brought the red down the hood and then around the grill. IDK. It's all mute at this point. Or maybe the golden arches logo in blazing gold flake on the doors.

hate all you want. Most people that I've ran into love it. I did something different then most 2 tone jobs with the way the lines are. Once I finish the rest of the stuff like the grille maybe you won't whine so much. You sound like a 45 year old bitch going through menopause.

You can CLEARLY tell the bumper is the same satin color as the rest of the body. You guys do realize satin isn't flat OR glossy right? So the way the sun hits it might be to much for you guys to grasp. There is still work to be done so if you aren't a fan don't count it out yet
