I would probably end up with a grey or silver or perhaps even better, gold pin stipe if it was between yellow & white. Just to give it a "touch of craftmanship" and keep the soft feel and not so strong contrast as black would do.
Turqous is very green and your yellow is on the warm sid ( red ), so that might look a bit harch.
A tan / light brown or ocra would most probably also blend in nicely, but would perhaps work even better if your interior was tan or brown.

there are a ton of pinstripe artist around.. most any of them could custom blend you a color that would look perfect.. ive got an awesome metallic brass from one shot that i use all the time verry clean and subtle.

Ray, I havent been to the forum much in the last couple months. The last pictures I saw of your car is when they were just getting started with the yellow paint. This morning I read thru this compete post and looked at all the photos. I have to say that Rose turned out absolutely beautiful. You have got to be proud of her. Great job.

Can I chime in with others and say white walls. But she is a stunning the way she sits, no need to rush into those. Than again, how long is it going to take to wear those tires out.

Fantastic job Ray.

Thank you for the nice comments, Victor! Yup, I think she looks pretty smart! I get a lot of thumbs up, and hollers of "Nice Car!" and stuff like that, as I go driving by people. Yes, white walls would really set her off, but as bad to keep clean as white lettering is. At least the white lettering is now turned to the inside on all the tires. She is resting in the garage the last few days, but I will have her out on the road again this coming week.
