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...

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

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

papaacer 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.

While I really liked the stripes on the fenders and front doors on their own, I had planned for - and still do plan for - more. I had some time so I carried the stripes back to the rear bumper, this time under the indents on the doors.

Our cars spend half of the year (at least) in winter mode, why not have nice wheels?
