two tone what do you think?

Hey all thinking of spraying the bottom half of my EB greg(silvery) and matching the bumbers for the 2 tone effect mainly becuase The grey bumpers are faded and I don't want it white all over like everyone else does.
So I ripped these two pics of sundeeps site and photoshoped them.
Do you think the two tone looks good or am i and Idiot?

It may look better if it were a lighter silver, I think it looks a little dark for the white.

Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted

Looks good, mate, but I also think that maybe a slightly lighter grey (more like a dark silver mixed with grey) would be better.

I think some of the svo's had a paint job similar to this (i.e. two tone), and they looked very smick!

Oh, yeah! I didn't even think of that!

Suddenly, I'm not sure if I like it that much anymore.

The main reason I thought of it was becuase my Telstar Turbo was two tone and it looks magic IMHO your right though it does remind me of the calais but it does look a little more classy.
I just don't want it to look the same as everyone elses EB that's all as I really can't stand white.

Breathe! It's only the internet....

If you like it, then go for it, mate! After all, it's your car, and you must do what makes you happy.

I think the key in getting it to look the best will be picking the right shade of grey/silver...

agree there is no point in everyone driving around in identical looking cars, and Dave is right the key is the grey. And it would be different, was just saying that what it reminded me of
