I was wondering what people would think about how I want my car painted the colors will be candy apple red on top and metallic black on bottom
This is not the best place to ask for opinions on two-tones. Most people are going to say it's ricey, but you do want you want.

switch it and do the body candy apple red with a black hood and maybe a black front lip... but it depends on the lip

^this. Most two tone paint jobs that incorporate black usually use it as the top color(hood, roof...), and the main(body) color would be the red.

I would rock the s*** out of that Si. Of course I like many vibrant colors, and I'm arguing with somebody who's car is white(which I also love).
Vibrant colors are okay... As long as it's one vibrant color...

If she's going 2 tone, she's going Show more than likely. So, the tuner look doesn't win as often, IE solid body color w/ black hood/roof/trunk. The darker color needs to be on the lower portion of the car, and follow body lines.

...and follow body lines.

That right there is probably the most important factor. Make sure your scheme flows naturally with the lines of the car(the right lines), otherwise it'll look cheap and out of place. Where the paint splits needs to occur on an existing transition.


And please tell me you're not airbrushing some kind of dragon on your car.

1) Please use punctuation. It makes it so much easier for the reader. This isn't a text message to your girlfriends, it's a forum.

2) About the 2 tone being "different"...Kelly is right, it has been done before. It's nothing new. Just sayin'.

3) Stop street racing.

4) Why not fix the car first before putting a new paint job on it. The front end going "crazy" isn't normal.
