Rick, As far as colors go its an open book, you just have to do a lot of test wraps to see what you like. What I like to do is look at the colors of classic cars ,the two tone paint jobs of the 1950's.

Thanks guys... I am slightly color blind, especially with light tones in blue, gray, brown and green.... makes it difficult sometimes to get the proper color contrasts..I appreciate your responses.
