Title for attention, so I'm constantly rattling around thoughts in my head of how to snazzy up my ride with minimal budget.

This time, I'm considering two-toning my Summit White Bolt with a blue wrap and the white roof. I was really considering just swapping doors/hood/hatch and only wrapping the fenders to match but parts ain't cheap!

So here's what I'm pondering for styles, 1 simplest and easiest, and I think cleanest, hood and roof stay white, wrap the rest.

2, hood blue also, may try do move the pillar line up a bit but that's where the hood line is.

3. Hood blue and black out the A Pillars, again may fiddle with the line a little.

Again just pondering, It'd be unique at least so I could find my car in the parking lot easier in the sea of Bolts. (actually have randomly parked to other white bolts, but usually get back to the parking lot before them.)

Of those I like the first one鈥 I just did simple rally stripes on mine with matching blue bow ties.

This is the way. Simple, clean, unique, stylish, and everything ties together.

Of these options, I would go with the third. I think blacking out the A pillars creates a nice separation between the top and bottom.

I like the third one, but I would almost be tempted to go to a more classic non-metallic Chevy blue, I am probably being influenced by memories of my mom's 1954 Chevrolet 210 sedan. I wonder what the effect of wrapping one or both of the solid "grill" sections in chrome would look like?

I actually love all of them.
White roof definitely wins in my opinion.
And murdered out black pillars.
I hope some day some good reputable company comes with battery packs that will not cost arms and legs to keep Bolt running for long time.
I would be definitely interested in LFP chemistry battery pack for Bolt EV.
Or it might be 30k GM EV coming in near future, definitely looking forward for this EV, if it comes with LFP chemistry.

Stripes and highlights are cool. Full body panels of different colors mostly looks bad IMO. I鈥檝e seen a few Kona EVs with white roofs and the rest another color. Just weird. Looks to me like a non-matching junkyard replacement panel even when it鈥檚 new from the factory.

In this order.

I like the first one. But if you are using a wrap to do this, why not pick a weirder color? Blue is not going to stand out. Why not orange or yellow, or terracotta, or British racing green?
Couple reasons, I've looked at other color combos and really like the darker blue contrast to the white. Also I mentioned other options like a nice teal or something and wife told me no :D

3. 1. 2. are my votes. BTW I'm loving those two tone blue/white pics of the upcoming Equinox EV.
Yeah that's what got me thinking about it more, also like the Kia Soul EV in blue with the white top, and the mini coopers. It does look great on trucks too, the more classic along the mid body-line.

My first car with a Chevrolet Celebrity 'Eurosport', hand me down from my dad, two tone black and gold like this, pretty cool but New England winters are a harsh mistress and she didn't last past 7 years/100,000, well not many 80s Chevy's did back then up North.

Thanks for the votes! It's almost even between 1 and 3, interestingly 2 is more like the new Equinox's style with white A-pillars and doesn't have any votes yet.

I'm still pondering, I like 1 the best but may be as it was the cleanest photoshop, the black line between the fender and hood is throwing me on option 3, having the black A pillar run to it is a little off, may fiddle with it a bit more and see if I can make it look cool.
