    IMHO it always looks sweet when you fade one color into another. Its super easy to do and it looks hot because the equivilent paint job on a real car is expensive and tedious to do.

    Lime green fading into black would look sweet IMHO.



    That was my wife's from about 10 years ago.

    i always thought it would me neat to do strips like the ones on a camaro or mustang. two across the top of the roof and over the hood. do those in carbon fiber and paint the rest in a neat lookin cameleon.

    Flat black with pink accents! I've seen some girls do this with 1:1 cars and it looks cool to me.

    Edit: Nevemind, I just noticed what colors you said she likes. :-P

    Make the bulk of the bug white n fade the very bottom edge with that Candy for some girls flare and put that neon green in the hood accents so it'll pop from a distance but won't be too clashy with the candy on the bottom.
