    CETA mod other than black?

    I've been toying with the CETA mod but my car is navy blue and I think flat black would get lost in an already dark color. Are there any pics of colors other than flat black, specifically on a blue rear? Thanks!

    Interesting question, I've never seen one with it in a color other than black. I would think a medium gray would be your best bet on the blue, but that's just my taste and opinion. A gray would also probably look ok with the silver accents you have...

    I agree. I think the medium grey or metallic gunmetal would look killer on navy blue.

    Thanks for the thoughts, I agree a Gun Metal grey would probably fill the bill. Originally I considered silver but that might be too much.

    I agree, be stepping into the "ricer" look with a contrast like that.

    See if you can find someone to photoshop the backside of your car, or play with it yourself for an idea of how it would look.

    I saw one in FL with a chromed CETA piece, it was white car though. Looked way too odd for me but my friends thought it looked good. I suppose that is an option for NBM if you have other chrome accents. Might be a lot of chrome though.

    Whoa, all chrome? Christ, I could drive in reverse and look like an Escalade! I do have chrome wheels but that might be over the top. I did find a rear shot of a blue Firehawk that is identical to mine with a Gunmetal CETA mod. Kinda digging it.

    ^ that looks sharp!

    I think you'd need to tie the color in somewhere else as well.

    Nice, I'll have to seek him out, although I found the pic on a Corvette forum under a thread trying to sell it. It looks like the lower panel is clear-coated as well, looks good although I originally had a flat color in mind.

    I had an idea and was wondering what you all thought. Ive been looking at getting black Carbonfiber vinyl sheets to cover my dash pad cause it cracked and even found some red carbonfiber as well and it started to make me think. What about a black or red carbon fibered CETA mod bumber? just a thought
