Now that I've worked out how to the 'O' into paint well enough, I can adapt this to just about any color scheme. A good friend has team colors with Orange so worked this into a new color palette of Orange, Silver, Black for aero and a Bronze like color for trim. it may not be very evident at first but the front grille, lights, wheels, mirrors and wing stanchions are the dark Bronze. I like how this breaks up the black that would otherwise make the wheels visually disappear. I choose metallic Silver this time instead of the Chrome coat since the latter is so delicate. The metallic Silver however goes on VERY thin, almost like pouring water and created a bunch of leaks despite all the masking I did. To clean that up, I sprayed some of the paint on a board and brushed it on over the leaks and hopefully its not too visible a correction.
For the time being, I'm all out of this livery decals so it's on to the next one. I'll have to order a couple more later.
