    The black top looks great with that too.
    [Edit after move: This was referring to Random Roadster Sightings]

    Edit:
    It didn't turn out quite like I wanted, but the effect ended up interesting so I figured I'd share it nonetheless...

    Edit 2:
    Also interesting.

    (I moved this post into the Model S forum. It really didn't belong in "Random Roadster Sightings.")

    Paint.net

    I'm too cheap for Photoshop.

    Photoshop. No intercap. I think it's a long-standing MS dig (they've never corrected it in their spelling dictionaries, in spite of numerous filed bugs).
    (I don't mind the use of Paint.net - I've had a number of interactions with the main developer - cool guy. As long as it wasn't MSPaint or Gimp, I'm ok!)

    I hear that in some states, it is cheaper to go back to college for a semester to get the education pricing for Adobe products, rather than paying full retail!

    I was thinking of trimming the edges in red like I see on some BMWs.

    It's not a dig at all. It's "two words, assume they did mixed caps". I'll correct in my other post.

    If I was trying to "dig" I would have said something like "Photo$hop".

    What's the objection to MsPaint? Are you a Notepad hater too?

    @NigelM - Brutal. If you don't want to see the post, then stop bumping it. No need to be harsh though.

    @brianman - Lighten up, that's why I put a smiley on my comment. Eveyone's opinion is valid, just expressing mine.....

    The phrasing "Doesn't belong here" struck a chord after the recent drama. Mea culpa - didn't see your smilie.

    @brianman - Have been away for a week and still catching up on all developments. No harm intended on my part. Friends?

    Heh, yah we're fine. That wasn't an issue. "What happens in one thread..." type of thing.

    Cheers.

    While I'm not a big fan of rims and body paint being variations of the same color, I could see selecting something other than the stock silver or shades of black. But not being an expert on color combinations (just ask my wife about my choices in dressing our son! :rolleyes:), I'm not sure what non-red hues would go best with signature red. Shades of yellow perhpas?

    @TEG - No worries. Just FYI.

    Here's another fiddling. This time in matte black.
