    Black T/A with orange accents?

    Anyone have any pictures of this combination? I'm talking like a front orange bird on the front license cover, and possibly orange stripes? Maybe the stripes are too much, but Im looking for potential color combos that are different from the norm. And not too "out there."

    Thanks.

    Haha no! But i've always been a huge fan of that color combination. It flows well.

    I've seen a Camaro done in that way and it definetely stood out.
    Just don't go overboard with the orange, remember sometimes less is more.

    Most definitely. I was only thinking about the front bird, some thin blackbird style stripes and a custom
    orange WS6 emblem. MAYBE an orange Trans Am and bird on the back
    filler panel. Definitely not full stripes.

    Consider our "true flame" overlay kit for the front bird, door lettering, ram air and PONTIAC on the back. It has an orange hue to it from a far and would be something a little different when you got up close:

    I like how the overlay isn't pure orange, so it looks like it flows in with the black a little more.. But Im not really feeling the flames. I always see flames on other cars and think it's cliche. I also have my side moldings shaved.

    thanks, i hear what you mean about the cliche. I was hoping we added a unique twist to the flame theme. I would totally have those on my car in a heart beat if it wouldn't clash with the red calipers and red dress up kit i have.

    Orange car with black accents I like.

    Not the other way around though.

    I most definitely wouldn't be doing the grills. That's too much, imo.

    The grill is the only part that looks a bit much or gawdy to me. Still like the general design but my highschools colors were black and orange so i am biased slightly i suppose. I would say go for it though, mistercreazil!

    I've ordered a few pieces of orange vinyls. . And I contacted Jaison about making me a custom orange WS6 emblem. Ahh man I can't wait until I save up the rest of the money.

    No, but good luck. Sounds sharp. Post up some pics if you get it done.

    1) This is not a GTO.
    2) There's a very FINE line between gaudy and slick.

    Here are some old pics of mine. I bought it with the orange lettering. Never liked it so I bought brushed aluminum ones from TSS.




    Proof that they are no longer orange. Now I just need to polish my calipers.
