    I love orange, but with blue, not sure it's a great color combo. Be a first, but I def wouldn't do it. At least it's not like green or hot pink

    Is it April?

    You would defiantly stand out. If your going to do it do the window frames black. Don't think any other colour would work.

    And to answer your original question. Yes, yes you are. Return the paint and buy a straight jacket.

    Personally I think this clashes heavily and not a huge fan, but if you like it then that's all that matters really

    Just say no! Kids.... drugs are a hell of a thing!

    All jokes aside I instantly thought of this when I saw your creation:

    final-race-2014.jpg

    Each to their own, and I am all for being original, but not my cup of tea. Makes the vehicle look like the ******* love child of a Citron Hatchback and an Adidas trainer in my mind.

    Ha same, a friend had one of them, horrible thing.

    Re the OP, if you like it do it, just make sure it can be reversed when the time comes to sell on.

    I think a touch of colour can look OK. I think the Focus/Fiesta ST or something has something similar. My mate painted this red bit on his sciroco wich I think looks good also, but on the 8V, I just don't think it works really as its a large area so not very subtle.

    Was a compliment. Those rovers were great if the head gasket stayed intact. There’s a reason lotus used those engines for a while.
    I think the criticism comes from years of all shades of white, black and greys is the norm. A little bit of chrome or black trim to finish it off.
    People are afraid of colours now :wink: especially bright ones.
    Was a point when dealers gave more trade in value for cars in silver and black as they are easy sells.

    I’m not protesting, just trying to save you from yourself . I’d do the same if I saw someone about to jump off a bridge . !!

    Looking at your photo again, maybe it's down to the shade you choose when editing it's nothing like the spray cap.

    Why don't you try doing the back first as it's a smaller area to see what it's like? I am still not sure on the window frames, think it would just look odd.

    Go for it if you like it, it will be unique and very probably be the only one you ever come across!

    Not for me I have so say. But if you like it, then that's all that matters really.

    But I doubt you'll ever be able to sell it looking like that.
