    Metallic dirt is not beige!! Beige isn't even a color. It's the shade of drapes you put up when you can't figure out what you really want.

    Not wanting to hijack the Thread, but the reference to "beige" reminded me of the difference between French women and North American women.
    At, or near the end of an amorous session a french woman will shout "ooh la la"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Her North American counterpart will mumble "beige.................. we'll paint the ceiling beige".
    Now, back to regular programming.

    Q, would you put up a couple in the ford tan, or sand or whatever they call it please? I'm thinking about painting mine what I call metallic dirt color with ghost type stripes.
    Not really familiar with the color but I,m going on the "Metallic Dirt" description. Guide me as to what should change.

    The last one looks pretty good . The first too are too yellow. It struck me that the dirt in SA may be a shade or 2 different than here. Maybe a touch platinumier? I wish I had whatever program your using!!!

    While I'm not a big fan of red, I really like the red with silver stripes.

    Ya'know,,, I really liked that red too. I swore I wasn't going to paint it red white or blue. That red sure is purdy!

    Simon, On this side of the pond we are prejudiced about the orange/black combo because of our fixation with Halloween. You should paint it whatever colour you want.Agreeded

    do you have something in a Beige ?

    the color of my interior is a "beige"color....maybe thats what John is talking about....it would be a very sedate looking car with that color...

    Hey "Q", I'm enjoying your handiwork. Keep the variations coming. How about an American Flag theme? Darren

    "Q", can you do a green with slight off-white stripes? The colors I've chosen are mini cooper British Racing Green II and Pepper White.

    Post number #28- Nice one SimonD! Keep them coming!

    SimonD, maybe you could also help to get Redmt's color right. The last picture in post number #24 was pretty close but needed a touch more platinum. And if you're up to it, why not try your hand at the requests of darren and JBL HEAT. I'll also give it a go when I get home, although the flag one might beat me...

    That's the Wimbledon White. But that red in #214 is killer. That's the one we were referring to earlier.
