Basically I'm wondering if anyone has tried the reverse of this...



That is, Red scoops/grille on a Phantom GTO.

I want to add a little bit more red accent, but I'm not sure how, yet.

I think I have seen it before... not 100% if it was real or photoshopped...but I wasn't a fan of it.
Yeah, something tells me it would be a bit "too much."

I'd like to see it though if anyone has any pics...

I think it might work if it had an anodized (sp?) aluminum look, maybe in a darker red. I dont think the plastic would look good painted at all. Anyone wanna give it a shot?

I'm thinking what might look better is a pin stripe type of thing. Basically 1/8 or 1/16 of an inch on each side of the groove of the scoops, and something similar on the grilles.

I think all red would just be too much red.

Also, would electrical tape damage the finish if I stuck some on to look at it?

I believe that I had done an image manipulation some time in the past similar to what you are describing. The comment I recall most vividly was such that the car looked like it had a bloody nose. I've looked in my files on my computer, but did not locate the work. I will see if I can locate the pictures elsewhere.
