i am not a fan of the skulls but the swirl i think is really cool. It has a transparent ghosted effect. It is a little more unique then most other swirls, i would leave it.

btw - what does gmc stand for? general mutli-color? hopefully that's not a dumb question...probably is but I have no experience with swirls so I don't know much about them other than what I see on this site... I know I like the green swirls alot...that's LNG right ;o)

thanks so what's the difference b/w gmc and lng? they're both green swirls? lng has black in it? Sandman's looks like it has some black in it... btw sandman, I'm not sure why you called this test a fail - I think the swirl looks cool - but again I'm not an expert on swirls - I onlyknow I like green ones ;o)

LNG is not a swirl, GMC is a swirl. The green in GMC is not LNG.

now I get it - thank you ...that is where my confusion stemmed from - I thought LNG was another type of swirl (I read another thread that I thought referred to a LNG swirl) but it was my mistake...I did check the abbreviations thread but didn't see gmc...but now I know...I continue to learn new things here

I dig the look sandman. If you were to wetsand the overspray from the skulls off, I bet folks would fall even harder for it.
