Are the decals going to be exactly as shown or would you change the blue for black/chrome to compliment the build?

Thought it was time I did a update on progress, I decided not to use the original gold maxycross I bought because they was to good to strip so I bought these faded gold crank set to have done black, so these and the seat post are still being annodised and will be back shortly, I had the 7x hoops done and there back so when I got the shiny sides done and built I post some more pics up later
