Looking good. I ireckon that shade of yellow is easily strong enough to contrast nicely with white bumpers...

I must admit that I hate yellow and black together! It's up to you, but I hope you go for white!

As an Essex poet once wrote

'Bigger brained blockheads often acquire,
 Black and orange cars.
 Premature ejaculation drivers,
 Their soft top's got roll bars.'
 
And for Marcus, if he needed one, the clue is Dylan Howe, probably - though the recording is Charlie Charles.

It's your car, have it how you want it!
But you obviously want it how I would, so I look forward to seeing progress and completion photos and video!

Ah, Charlie Charles, great bassist with Ian Dury and the Blockheads. Dylan Howe is  fine drummer and sone of the great Steve Howe of Yes.

^  Yup, got it!

Going back to yellow and white I suddenly remembered those lovely Austin/Frazer-Nash/Hudson Metropolitans which were often in fairly pale yellow and white, as well as Blue and pink + white :

Looks good to me!

I agree that pale yellow and white do work well together - however, in your face yellow and white I am not so sure. I am having white wheels too, so not stopping just at the bumpers - thought they may need some company!!

Pale yellow and white, a classic combo, see china from early 20th century. Yellow Peels have been done before. This Jiff coloured boy for example.
