I went WAY off standard with this one and chose a VERY bright and recognizable color. I thought the black stripes would be far to strong a contrast and went with a dark metallic grey instead on this one. I do like the color combination and prefer the metallic over a flat but eager to try this green out with a non-metallic grey as well.

This is also the 2nd attempt as the first had catastrophic paint failure in applying the 2nd coat of green over a day after the first coat. It crinkled horribly right in front of me leading me to trash the body. This one is therefore is slightly less ornate than the first as I also scrapped the additional striping I had on the first rendition to save time. Turns out the metallic grey also goes on thick and takes more than a day to bond to a base coat. I had removed the mask tape after a couple hours of drying only to have the paint come up with the tape causing me to have to redo some sections of the grey.
Due to the base livery using green on some of the graphics, I had to leave white panels where they are applied in lieu of an odd green tone overlap which turned out well enough.

Nice work! I think it's my favorite of your new Vettes, despite the challenges. Like your "white background" solution, too.
