    Thanks everyone I plan to do the small border red, the larger border black or charcoal gray and the backing red. It is for my son and he loves cars so I thought this would work perfectly!

    Sam - You're doing a great job. It's going to be really cool when you're done. :) Remember we all started and had to practise too, so you're doing really, really well.
