Mods for “Benz”

Has a custom paint job. The car has the original white from factory, but I add Ice Pearl Blue from House of Kolor. When the car is seen on a cloudy day or in poor lighting, the car is seen as white. On a sunny day depending how the sun is hitting it the blue pearl stands out. (O.K. some boaters will understand this) At night with certain street lights the white and blue almost looks like being on a boat out on the blue Atlantic with the moonlight hitting the rooster tail. It is beautiful.
