2-tone paint job on a Challenger?

Has anybody ever considered it, or would that just look ridiculous?

I'm not talking about jarringly different colors, though. I just had this idea on what if you had vibrant shade on the upside of the distinguished beltline and then use an ever-so-subtle darker shade of the same color on the low-side? Maybe even use a very subtle gradient to go even darker as you hit the bottom edge of the body panels?

Would this accentuate the body taper such that it better mimics the radical profile of the classic Challenger?

It's not that I really needed 370 hp...but having 150+ hp riding shotgun at a moment's bidding w/o a 6000 rpm moonshot is what makes me feel like I'm in the right car for me. The roar of a v8 seals the deal!

The Google keyword is "ethanol-free gas". The truth is coming to light. Check out http://pure-gas.org/

There are a couple people with two tone, but nothing subtle like you're saying. I was planning it with my black car, but will be going another direction with the purple one.

I've been hankering to try a few tests like that myself. That's a good profile shot for the exercise! Do you have a large pic version of the source for that image, that you can pass my way?

I went the two tone route, with a different seperator line than is usually used.



TheMush, I like the Purple and Black, but try it with a Brembo Red Seperator pin stripe, not only does it incorporate the brake calipers, but both colors will seem to pop.

rodderrick, very nice, I like it!

I was planning on a white pinstripe when I was considering painting the black one. I think that would set it off the best, and was going to do the calipers purple anyway.
