Does orange complement Sonic Blue?

Seriously, I am debating about painting something orange on the truck, but idk might be tacky but at the same time i dont really care, it would be different.

Opinions?

I kind of like it. It's an opposite color, therefore it stands out, but doesn't clash. On Sonic, you'll need a bright slightly reddish orange, I think. Or just match the orange Edge decal color and you're set!

As said, orange is used in the EDGE decals. I think sonic blue would look good with subtle touches of orange. Although you already have silver thrown in so it might look out of place.

Oranges are delicious.



It might get thrown off by the silver color but at the same time it would look very unique, especially on your rig.

I didn't think about that. Krylon makes Kubota orange too, it's brighter than the other stuff.

(psst, kenny: flourescent)

Orange/Blue is a good, high contrast, color combination. Of course, I would never run anything with that color combination, personally... It clashes big time with my booster tag on the front of my truck.
