I like the way you think a bit of varnish for the gloss look would just top it off

Looks good Dean (and Sam)! Dean, are you going with polished or black dual roll bars?

Re: the paint. I panicked when an old car of mine was still in a paint booth after having the clear coats applied. I turned up at the shop and sh!t myself, because the electric blue colour looked PURPLE under the lights. I think they saw the terror on my face, so a few of the paint guys pushed the car outside to prove to me that they hadn't chosen selected wrong paint code...

Sam and Dean...same colour...definitely red.
I might actually name that colour "definitely red" from now on.

Dean , I've sent you a million pics...looks red in every one...don't worry about the colour we didn't change it in the last day or so.

I saw it last week in the flesh. Definitely red. I took some photos of the "NEW"dark blue as well and the photos don't do it justice. I don't think the photos can accurately convey the colour, especially if they are taken inside.

Looks fantastic Deano, it will come up a treat. Silver stripes will really make an impact.
