Ok , you guys know I have yet to paint my TC lime green.

BUt I have been thinking.

Can you picture it in flat dark olive green with a dark gun metal grey wheels? Either no trim or painted trim.

I can picture it and I think it would be sweet and so weird it would be cool.

Is it too weird?

Anyone have photo shop to show me what it would look like?

Try gloss olive green with green iridescent metal flek, that would be interesting. there is a kid around where i like with as iridescent lime green sport, it's pretty cool, in an over the top sort of way.

I've always associated green with Dodge.

I think it was because my brother had a lime green Dart.

I like the idea though.

Save the Ford Grabber Blue for me guy's.

GT,

Maybe, if the car had a turret and treads, otherwise, no.

Can I picture flat olive green with gunmetal wheels? On a Humvee, yes. Turbo Coupe, NO. [Image: wink.gif]

A friend had a Caddy in a dark metallic olive green, and it looked very nice. I think it'd look good on a TC proivided that it is glossy.

Dark-colored wheels sound attractive in theory, but they always end up looking like cheap steel wheels with missing hubcaps in real life.

But then all the lumps would show [Image: frown.gif]

I still keep thinking it would look cool. Gator said I am crazy and my wife said she will not ride in it, BONUS!

I need something that would hide how wavy the body really is. It has no rust but the doors have been beat down.

Come on! NO one has photoshop?

GT350R, I see why you didn't post this on TF! [Image: biggrin.gif] Put a flat white star on each door and the decklid and hood, with an alphanumeric next to them, and maybe paint "STAFF CAR" under that, it'd be cool in a Road Warrior sort of way...
