Blue and yellow are pretty close to being complimentary colors. It's yellow/purple blue/Orange so I think since its close, blue accents compliment the yellow. The wheels are white hence the white stripe. So it all goes together.

Thanks for clearing it up Jose. I didn't know if it was for some personal reason, favorite color/etc. Just seemed out of place to me but now i know the reason.

Very cool to keep the car clean looking with different colors like that.

I bought my se sedan 2.5 years ago while working at a ford dealership. I started following your thread in 2012 and loved what you were doing. Then i opened my own used car dealership and repair shop and got so busy and distracted with other cars for 2 years that i kind of forgot about it. Now I'm kind of getting back into my sonic blue se and i stumbled upon your thread again. What a difference from where i left off and my how the thread has grown! Congrats twenty on your awsome build.

Personally I love it! I think it may also be personal reasons too. I mean, you have to personally like it to do it right? Haha I am doing a Red/Black/Gold them on the sedan myself. I've always loved the look of gold on red cars, but they are minimal things here and there. Lugs nuts, decals....

Great looking car, have followed for a while. Also agree about being in winter half the year, you may as well have it look good! The new wheels going to be there on time?
My choice to go with a yellow/blue colour scheme originally began as a nod to Spoon Sports, a famous Honda tuning company. I'm a big Honda fan and was actually shopping for an Integra before I wound up buying the Focus.

The blue also works with the blue details found on the car from the factory - the background of the Ford emblems, the gauge cluster needles, the lighting in the footwells and for the buttons, and so on. I used that for the banner and many decals, plus my shift knob is blue too.

White can also be seen on Spoon cars and I think it just works really well as a third main colour. Also, there is a decal on the front driver's side wheel but it's for The MacKenCo garage actually. That's the name my friends and I have for my garage.

And it's looking like I'll be rolling in to the show on the Tarmacs...

Thank you! I'm extremely proud of how far the sedan has come but don't plan on stopping any time soon.
