No no, nyet, pas de, er, nope.

Works on a dark car. But makes Nick's look as if someone has kicked the sh1t out of it.

I agree with Doive on this one.

Increasing the black detailing on the car can make it look better, but some may consider it chavadelic to do so. :(

No, no, Doive is right, works on dark colours but not light ones. Makes ya car look like a Girl with eye liner on. So, Pink it should be. :wink:

The silver on my Dark Green made it look like it was on acid with big wide eyes so the blacking out of the inside behind the glass toned it down.
