Paint schemes

Good morning everyone. I have an 07 silver GT that needs some color added to the side panels to break it up some. Any ideas or photos to post to give it some pizzazz? Not looking for full repaint just some detailing.

There are several custom paint options in this thread, this thread, this thread, this thread, this thread, and this thread.

Some guys have had good luck going with custom printed vinyl decals from a local sign shop to help break up the slab-sides of the GT.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Anyone have any pics of someone who has painted the center trim pieces body color for a serious monochromatic look ?

No problem. It was mostly a copy & past from the last time this question was asked.
