How's this for a possible color scheme?

Instead of blue with white roof/mirrors, I reversed it.

White car with blue roof/mirrors.

Off course it's photoshoped.

Too bad many folks can't seem to grasp the spirit of individualism. At least you were honest though.

It was just a Photoshop experiment. It got me thinking however. When I was experimenting, I had a difficult time recreating the dull appearance of the roof as seen at miniusa. My blue, for the fender, came out more metallic alloy looking before I toned it down.

How is this for a metallic blue?

Thanks,

FYI, I started with a picture of a blue MINI, and duplicated the layer. In the top layer I masked out and deleted all of the blue.

Then using the first layer as a template, I created as many duplicates as I wanted colors, keeping them under the final sans body color layer.

Then select Adjust-->Hue/Saturation, and select colorize.
Max out the saturation at 100%, and pick your hue.

I've had fun finding gold, and bronze to go with the silver. Even coper.

But if you really want something to visualize in your next dream. Hear you go.

Tomato

Egg plant. Isn't that a vegetable?

They very in color from reddish brown, dull purple, to a very deep almost dark green purple. But most of the ones I've seen are very deep purple.

But then I don't touch the stuff :)

I'll try my best at the eggplant. It's difficult. As for tomato, I'm affraid the standard non-metalic red is better than anything I was able to do. I gave up.

On the way to figuring out egg plant, I stumbled on black cherry. I wish MINI would add some more colors.

Although, given the relatively small area of color, and few items to mask off, I wonder how much it would cost to repaint. Only the lower half would have to be painted. And if you picked an appropriate base color, you'd end up with matching seats.

Nice one BrantV! Thanks for trying this for me

The second one is the closer one to what I had in mind

The shade of colour is very good but a little too bright - needs to be slightly darker, and greyer (less saturated?), so almost black-looking in fact

Would look interesting with pale olive green leather seats!

How about Electic Blue with Black roof?
I'm interested to see how that would look.
