Factory for a Holden Barina in Australia - ironically I am from Australia.. I was looking for the BMW M2 blue from 2 years ago on the 2nd EP I think of Grand Tour... fell in love, but BMW has water based paints or something and you need expensive gear to spray... so we went thru the spectrum from that color and under the UV light I liked this one a lot...

so went for it...

Originally I had planned to go olive drab with white rims.. hahahaha


technically it is called Tahiti Green
