Hey guys i need some advice, below are pics of my EB and i would like to paint the side moulds but i dont know what colour i should do, i was thinking of a red insert like an XR6 but people keep telling me its ugly. Others say to paint it black with a chrome insert, and i have seen alot of people like to colour code it.

I have to go with the Red/Orange stripe as opposed to the chrome. The chrome does go off and no amount of polishing will get it back.
Troyman has Black inserts in his and they aren't too bad but my opinion is that they look better on a WHITE car than any other colour.

My mate has the red/orange stripe in his on a Polynesian Green ED and they look bloody good. :)

Not for the moulds though, they are a PART of the mould and means laying out MORE money.
