Yes indeed.  Mating things up nicely Bob!

Those colours you've selected will really look slick.

Still here, it's either been too cold, or too wet, or too windy to paint
the last week or so, but hopefully tomorrow will see the base color applied
to the Fireflash.

The tail section



The Trim Color
Since these are the only parts that are all dark blue, I shot those just to see the actual color, and me likey!



I'll let the paint cure for a day or two before masking for the trim color, but in the meantime, I have 60 1/4" wheels and tires to paint!

I like the paint color, and congrats, no seams is awesome! The contrasting blue is pretty awesome, is it kinda sparkly?
