Is the bay colour going to be continued on the outside? Appears to be a bit more purple than Indigo.

Nah it wont be, Well not for a good few year's. Yeah it looks extremly purple in the photo's, but yet in person it doesnt.. Since being painted it has settled in a bit better and looks more the blue now. It's 2pac with clear/Hardner in it and isnt done in a both so will take some months to set properly. :)

Sometimes the original paint on the car goes this puerple in the right sunlight too.
