Thanks guys.

I was thinking the same thing about the front fender! That picture sure opens up a lot of potential ideas. I'm going to have to look at that pic some more...
I would keep the accent small like you did on the engine spoiler.

Update pics..

I used lacquer thinner to clean up the engine spoilers, it worked well.

I started with one can of TUD white, but it wasn't enough to get the right shade.

Since I had a little blue left, I went for the front fender. I noticed from the side the tank cover's blue stripe looks curved. But it's actually a straight line! So I made a straight line on the fender too!! It looks curved from the side...

The shade is a little light on the fender blue stripe. I ran out of blue, so need to go back and add some more.

I unfortunately have to report that the spoilers came out like crap using the TUD paint. I'm not exactly sure what happened but it was unacceptable. I cried as I cleaned it all off again...lol.

Not wanting to waste money on another attempt, I went ahead and used the Walmart gloss white. It obviously doesn't match but it's fairly close. I'm not fully enamored with the look but will try it out for a while and see if it grows on me... it has been somewhat frustrating but still an enjoyable experience for me.
