Okay vanners, now it's time for an opinion pole. What color do you think looks better on my van?
And do you like the chrome edge?

The black












Or the blue?
I know your thinking why blue? But keep in mind that there is blue in the pinstripe and in the van name mural. Also blue trim under the hood, which is open when I show. Here are a couple pics to show the blue on the van.






And here are the blue covers.










What do ya think?



I also want to share a tip with you guys. When working with edge molding it's best to warm it with a heat gun before installing. (makes it pliable and melts the glue) But I forgot to grab my heat gun and was working at home. So after cutting the molding to size, I put the strips in the oven at 100* for about ten minutes. Worked better then it ever did using a heat gun!


I like black........

Black just looks so damn good, but the blue is also pretty cool looking. Think of em like sunglasses, different pair for different occasions....like blue blockers for a van

They both look cool but I think the black with the chrome trim looks best on the front.
