The design is hard to photo because the translucent red candy over the silver layer that makes the design is just a shade lighter then the red layer under the silver layer. Which is uncovered when you pull the puckered shrink wrap off the silver. What you end up with in total is hard to take in if you not within 10 feet if it. Form 20 feet it just looks like a solid gloss blood red. When the sun hits it with all the depth and variety, it goes from deepest red to almost orange from the sun reflection back through the candy. Here'* a good shot of the differences that hit your eye. I wanted extreme, but in a way that looked classy. It'* always awesome to be at a store or show and see peoples expressions when they walk up on it and begin to notice it is not the car or color they viewed at 20 feet and out.

Well, yes its a custom color, but its all one color. I do see some wavyness in the paint, cant tell if its the car or the pic. But its still nowhere close to ghetto. When you live near the biggest ghetto of OH, Youngstown and Warren you get very good at spotting it.

The last two were with water. It was a sort of preview of the finished product. Shortly after that, a friend of mine recommended that we use paint stripper on the car and start over. I thought, sure why not? And now a gray-primer Bonneville is sitting in my garage and waiting for some awesome work to happen.
