hey guys, could already be on here/ silly question, but when and why did the factory 2 tone Calais stop? the vs was the last??
i know it would most likely look a bit
"different" now on ve/f etc

ive seen a few vt/z with there own custom painted/wrapped 2 tone and some do look good

It's a fashion thing, like flared pants, disco music and Beatle haircuts.
For 2 tone to work, it has to be on a car of the era, ie from factory ... FB/EK/EH ….. or maybe not, VB/VC Calais now look stupid. Some of the 2 tone custom paint jobs on late model cars just look awful despite being a really top job and finish.
Don't know about on a VE/VF, apart from the roof panel and matching bonnet parts.
