If I am ever in a city that has a large lowrider scene I will check it out.Murals of everything from Jesus to Chicks with swords,man those are some sweet designs.
As far as color goes,like Tazz said,find something that works,you would not want to spend a load of money on a paint job just to find out that it does nt appeal to your eye.If you were to do a Imperial theme,I would use black as my primary color and have accents of red,deep,dark red.How to describe this? Make it as though red is the underlying color and is cracking through the black.Another way to describe it is you are on the outside of a window which is painted black,solid black.Inside the room which you can not see is a bright red light on,if you were to crack,but not shatter the window,the red would filter through so you couls see traces of the red.Get it? I hope so because I have almost confused myself.
I have not understood,all car would be "red cracking through the black" or it's some stripes?
I'm glad, that you enjoyed it. Maybe you can suggest some customizations for maintain this “Imperial theme”?

This thread now Little bit better than 2...

I think what Ron meant was like a black cherry kinda color, As if it was almost black but you werent sure but its really a red instead. Sounds pretty cool, heck If I could get ahold of some paint like that, Id just paint it solid that color myself.

Yea, I agree with you, most likely Ron meant color like this.

So I still think about "murals". Imperial sign on hood, but what with car sides? It’s possible to make the whole epic illustration on full-length, like “Executor” on a background with galaxies and nebulas…or something more simple…
Any suggestions?

I also think about alternative of base color. Paint offered by Ron can give to car very sinister appearance. Another variants? I think, some kind a deep pure red would be good. It’s pretty aggressive color as itself, and give more gorgeous looks, less menacing though.
