I matched the color from the picture in the palette. I like it.

BTW my wife says 168 and politely declines your invite. But she said that will continue to voice her opinions through me

The pink looks good, but it will certainly limit your buyers when you go to sell it. Like Shift_Avenger said, if you put some accents on your truck you can match the calipers to them.

I was thinking maybe if you had some of the black chrome badges you might be able to find a black paint that matched the badges. It would not stand out as much but on close inspection it would look very nice.

I used red on my calipers because it goes well with the white, it stands out well, and it matches the colors of my alma mater, OU.

Carlos had the idea to do this, so I chopped it up for him.

Consider it from Shift Avenger to you.

Thanks Guys! ............. Actually the nismo with a pink accent and pink sliders might look kinda cool. However I could only drive it in certain areas of the city. WITH MY DOORS LOCKED! LOL Ehh, fuggetaboutit.. I couldnt drive it at all. Maybe occasionally with hot pink calipers. Who came up with this idea and where is the freakin ban button... Oh wait... Damn.... 175
