Not feeling the 2-tone that much. Like the shade of green though.

I'm the other way around, I love the two tone, HATE the green you used, IMO you should have gone with the green in the concept drawing..

I like the layout. I agree that the green could have been a little darker. But overall, it's good.

It's OK, but not my choice of colors. If the color combo was different, maybe I'd love it.

i'm just not a big fan of how the green extends down to the front bumper, it should have either stopped at the hood, or the line on the front guard that stops at the headlight should have followed the wheel arch crease

For anyone at SEMA looking for this car, it is in the outside group near the building almost dead-center. I have some more pics, including the awesome lip spoiler:

I agree that the lip and spoiler should be produced asap espcially in carbon fiber. Maybe also a hood and trunk as well.

What are those little mint/chocolate candies called? The ones you get after a meal, in the foil wrapper. It makes me think of them.
