Whoa. Arush, you have a beauty here. Demands nothing but complete attention from the looker. Carry on with the same spirit and give us more beauties to make wallpapers!

Have an idea- if incase it has to be black then how about smoking the headlights from the outside-either full or just the part where red is maximum, just above the twin lights.

The whole point is those are sealed lights - painting them from the outside may not work as a permanent option IMHO & one would still see some red highlights here & there which would look

Got your point there mate but was just a suggestion as i have seen the car in person and of all that i could work my imagination upon, that seemed to be the best way to cover up the red as the headlights are twin type. Sorry if i sounded dumb!!

Ok how about the headlights in complete smoke black. Plus finish is'nt an issue as he can save the clear coat for after the painting and smoking the lights, to give it the same shine as the car and it would look wicked when the lights come on as they are HIDs and at night when the lights come on they would look as if the devil just woke up

Guys pardon me if all this sounds ridiculous, i am just typing as my imagination is running at the same time

Yes kumar ranjan, the car was on zee business this weekend.

aniguchisan and others ... about the color.... i know black looks good BUT i really dont know! black totally takes away the whole design and the flow of the bodywork it hides everything thats why im not liking the black on my car presently that much. It used to look more appealing in red earlier.

Badboyscad, one more photoshop please... i plan to keep the pillars and roof in black and the rest of the car in red.

More wallpaper material? Here is a pic my wife took from her car while in motion.

Goody goody this Thread is heating up now.

I can almost hear Badboyscad's mouse clicking away.

I would suggest one with the same Red its currently running and one with a DARK metallic Red.

How about the two color like the one Arush as posted except the color are reversed, like the red in the front and black in the rear, so that the problem with the headlight with red interior matches with the body color. Sorry I do not have experience with photoshop so cannot make a sample.
