Default Should I go mopar blue or racing red?

I've been gathering Ideas on paint schemes and graphics/pinstripping....I think I have a general Idea what I want to put together but I need your input on what accent color I should use.

This is what I initially wanted to do but in the grand scheme of things I highly doubt I want to spend the time/money on it because generally vehicles and I don't last longer together.



Now for more of a really option that I'm sure I can put together for well under $500

To give you an Idea this is what my truck looks like from the front



First I want to stay with a black on flat/matted black graphic scheme with either red or blue pinstripping...Here's what I'm talking about

Here's a black challenger/charger with flat black hood graphics


I want to do thoses matted/flat black hood graphics accent them and the grille area's with either red/blue pin-stripping...kind of like this


As well as my wheels blue or red pin-stripping


Here is a crappy job done by myself on a black truck (thanks to whoever truck this is obviously it say on the LP) with pinstripping



I'm in the process of retro fitted my quad headlights, thanks to Jeremy for supplying me with morimoto projectors....I've already baked them and painted all the housing black but I was wondering if I should add a second color either the red or blue outlines.

Here's a set Jeremy did in red to give you an Idea what I'm talking about


As far as the side graphics I'm pretty much gonna imitate Jeremy's spear graphic in flat/matted black and outline it with either the red or blue pin-stripping


My initial thought is to go red but do you think mopar blue would look good?...any suggestions as far as graphics (places to get them from even if you know places in the Houston area) and different colors options are welcome.

You can go wrong with either color, but I would get the blue since so many people do the red.

Seconded
The red looks kinda early days Batmobile-ish
Blue makes it look like a Mopar edition

Ok snapped a pic and kinda fabbed up the scheme on my truck (minus the hood stripes)...

Red


Blue


Or just go ahead play it save and finish off the retro fit quads with the blacked out scheme I already have?

I like the blue
it is more subtle & looks like it belongs there

thread jump, sort of
this guy went nuts with mods
a guy down in New Zealand already did the BatRam thing, without the red

Yeah that's a sweet SRT 10....

The more and more I look at the blue its starting to grow on me....Like yall said I can make my version of a mopar edition ram, just like they did with the challenger a couple of years back.







I think it doesn't have to the mopar blue but maybe a tad darker/richer blue(like a cobalt)...get more away from the baby blue tint the mopar blue has.

Looking at that last image
a 3/16th inch pinstripe in red, surrounding the fattest blue strip, might look sharp

I used to have tires that had 2 thin stripes, one in blue & one in red, sort of like the REDLINE RADIAL TIRES have, with a blue stripe not far from the red stripe
http://www.cokertire.com/redline-tires

I am sure when you fully decide what you are going to do
It will be a one of a kind & it will be yours & just like you want it
you will then have to slap your own face to wipe off the grin

I think I might have a winner with the black and blue combo....The only differences with theses pictures are the way I want to finish my retro fitted quads/ fogs (accent color or not). Tell me what set of lights looks the best with the scheme

Outlining them in blue


Or just black them out with no color accent...don't know if painting them two colors is going a little bit overboard with all the blue everywhere else?
