Holy crap, I actually posted a picture successfully!!

Anyway, I'm "thinking" of adding this coloring package to my all white GTZ.

Just the bottom portion of course. (The grey and the red stripe) It was used by GM on Camaros, Fieros, some Cutlasses in the late 80's.

Anyone good with Photoshop want to try it on a white GTZ?

:beer:

I did my white GTZ black on the bottom and it was crap. But the silver might work. Fuzzchop has done some of that kind of thing with his cars. And the shape of the ground effects do reflect the metallic gray pretty nicely on my car now.

photos are SIMPLE... When your in the full editor you click on the CHOOSE FILE pick a image then click on OK and the use the Add the file button, or just hit submit... if it's less that 5mb (I believe what I set the max at) the it will upload and display in your post. Obviously that's using the forum storage space... Photobucket is a different story.

Simple.

And my opinion... The paint on that car is beautiful as is... and I'm not sure I like the two tone style on Beretta... Granted I rocked it for 1 year but I wasn't fond of black bumpers and GFX, and I know this wouldn't go that high but I still don't like even just the GFX part being a different color.

Well I'm actually backing off on this idea the more I think about it.

It seems the few times I actually take the car out, someone somewhere mentions the paint.

Best leave well enough alone I suppose.

Cheers
