      Some cars you can only really do those colors and look okay, I have a black car so I can pick just about any color
      But my friend has an Indigo Blue Golf, so white is probably his best option without looking utterly ridonkulous

      I did good...lol
      It's one of my very faithful customers..I always try to do something unique on one of the pieces he gives me..This cover was coated by his previous coater in just white..no clear coat,no lettering..it had edge pull all over(I know you know what that is)and just looked milky and plain..
      So he kinda gave me free run with it...As much of a PITA that kinda stuff is(one mistake you start over) I really enjoy doing it...I must be nuts..hahahaha
