Very cool idea, congrats! That's a combo I never would've thought of. Was there a specific inspiration for this build?

I bemoan the fact that most cars on dealers lots are either white, black or silver with an occasional red or blue. (Actually Ford has some pretty nice colors these days.) Are people's tastes really that boring or are we at the mercy of the manufacture's aversion to risk?

Kudos for going against the mainstream. I love your choice; it looks awesome. My personal favorite is a dark burnt orange metallic and wrestled with the thought of ordering that on my build. It's too bad that the custom auto paints are so expensive. It would be great if Kiesel could add a bit more variety in their standard paints. I'd vote that yours should be one of them.

I know. I was worried until I opened the case and saw the true color.
