Black bottom. But, don't just get it like a normal 2 tone car, make the black abit lower than the middle of the door line.

I'm assuming your car is Marine Aqua - the mid metallic green that was so popular on VP's and VR's, and fades to **** on nearly every one you see. My VR Berlina was done in that colour and a total respray brought it back to life like no polish ever could.

If that is your colour, the only colour I reckon will work is the silver grey lower panels that were painted on Calais - you see them around a bit and they can look pretty good, but the paint has to be in good nick.

But then it wouldn't be custom, it would be a mock up calais....

This is just my personal opinion, but i've never really been a fan of custom 2 tone paint jobs. I reckon you'd get bored too quickly once its done. I still think the best paint job, is a single tone, solid colour...
