photoshop favour please - new look for my van

I've got a T4 van with a roof full of holes bunged up with silicone and useless aerials from when the bus was an AA van. They need to be filled and the roof will then need painting.
Rather than just paint it yellow I'm after ideas - another colour on the roof? (red / grey / black etc) or maybe some sort of graphics / graffiti?

Any suggestions welcome....... ;)

If anyone can photoshop the pic below to give me an idea of how it will look I'd be very grateful.

Thanks!!! ;D

if you are just painting roof id go with black

if you wanted two tone i prefer the last one silver on top of yellow with colour coded bumpers.

maybe even a pinstripe line between the two colours

I like No 8, the white roof/bumpers. Might also look cool in silver/yellow with the same combo.

I'm going black on my ex AA roof, which is a mess too, after I saw a black roof on a white van on here and it looked smart as. I did my AA stripes in black too and have got smoked indicators, so hopefully it should tie it all together. I'm thinking of trying to do it with the rustoleum paint method.

Black brings yellow out. Partly because of the high contrast level, but also because the complimentary colour of yellow is violet. And black, while devoid of colour (unless you buy cheap pigments, which are made of a mixture of other dark pigments and can show up as greenish, blueish, etc in strong light) has a similar tonal value to violet; so gives a simliar effect.

Guess who studied colour theory? I:

I think the two tone thing works - my old Type 2 was two tone blue and silver.....

but I really like the idea of a grapics style roof - maybe a combination of this......

added a few chequer decals which I had left over that my mate kindly sent over for my last project van.........

That gave me the idea of a NYC cab theme like this.......

a quick google images search turned up this.....
