As far as ugly Klein paint jobs are concerned, I FAR prefer this very cool one:

That's quite cool, the Mardi Gras is an abomination. I much prefer the frames in a single strong colour, or a fade.

The one in the pics on this page is 'Graffiti'. Special order, only about 10 frames made with this color. Talk about way rare...

Graffiti does rule. Although it is somewhat similar to what TBG were doing a few years earlier.

If we're talking aesthetically challenged Klein paint jobs (and I actually kind of like mardi gras, it's flamboyant) then might I submit this.

Don't think this has been posted for a few weeks so apologies.
