Thumbs up Shocking pink @ Sims

At the Sims custom shop they now have these photos in their spray shop gallery. So I guess that means that they sprayed a JEM this way. I thought it was well done and interesting so I thought I'd post them here.

Re: Shocking pink @ Sims

photos can sadly not do them justice when is someone gonna make a camera that can capture neons properly? or is it impossible 4 some reason unknown to me? every time i take one of neon colors they look flat as DLR! (I like him really)

Re: Shocking pink @ Sims

Do you know what? I'd love to get Sims to do a custom paint job, but their reputation for shipping leaves a lot to be desired. That's a worry at the best of times but when you consider I live in the UK it makes me even more hesitant.

Beautiful paintjobs though.

Here's a pic of an original shocking pink neon JEM.

I've never seen a neon in person, but I have a feeling the neon is captured better in this photograph?

Here's another original. They replicated it very well @ Sims, didn't they?

That's the first time I hear of that. I'd say you living in the UK would make you less hesitant as they're in the same country?

I'm always surprised that they look great, whenever I see one, too!

Re: Shocking pink @ Sims
