UPDATE: I just read on another forum that the blue is discontinued (thus the rarity/expense)! GAH. I might have to stock up for the next several years if I like it.
What are you doing! stop using it all!

Well I want to start by replacing my vinyl hood stripes with grabber blue stripes. If I like how the blue looks on the black, I plan on incorporating it elsewhere on the body. I'm a long ways off from deciding on anything specific yet (there is much photoshopping left to do), but whatever I decide on will be thin lines and probably subtle. I think neon blue will stick out enough without being in gigantic strips across my car. But we'll see how it turns out!

The main idea is that I want to incorporate a secondary color into my car. I'm torn between flat black, dark gray, or grabber blue. Flat black is almost too subtle, but grabber blue might be too much of an eye magnet. But with the magic of Plasti Dip...I don't have to make any permanent decisions until I've tried everything!

You know the body line across the door? You can slip it there and see how that goes

The blue wheels look pretty nice. Too bad blue won't go well with my car.
I just looked up the red however.. that's a different story.. but red wheels might be too much? no?

Perhaps, but worst-case scenario you just peel it off and tell no one about your mistake!

It's really not much work for rims, especially if you tape on the inside of the rims. No issues!

i should pick up some black for my rocker panels this winter. and see how it holds up. anything has to be better than letting rust try and creep its way in (car is eight years old)

That's a really good idea! Give your car a winter coat! :D

If we had seasons here in Houston I might do a winter coat, but our seasons are, summer, and hell. No spring winter or fall just heat and humidity.
