You would have to photo shop the scheme to see if it would look good

yeah you would have to photoshop that...personally i think it's too many colors, too much goin on, will look choppy by the sounds of it. Maybe try goin with a nice even two-tone? just my POV.
What color is your car now?

2 colors IMO is the best.

3? Would look like those cars with random fender colors because they got in a wreck or something.

Not saying it's a bad idea, but why? I am just curious as the only thing I can think of is the flag of the Yukon.

Three colors from a distance...maybe even up close would look you were in a wreck and just threw random colored pieces toether. Two-tone looks good...if done right. I hate when people don't paint their body kits and claim that "it's two-tone!" Sorry that's kinda off topic but I really hate that.

Mods: debaged, carbon fiber hood, painted interior trim, lowered

I agree with everyone else. Keep it down to a 2 tone. Everything more than that looks overwhelming or looks like its wrecked.

Dual Kicker Comp 12's enclosed in a sealed Kicker enclosure powered with a 1200 Insignia Amp
