I've been tossing the idea around of adding Red stripes to my car which would go against my whole 'blackout' theme, i'm on the fence.

completely agree on gloss black stripes - think they would look killer on there. But vote NAY on the red.

gloss black yes or even just a satin. Hell it could be as easy and laying some tape and spraying some clear.

I have to agree that the straight stripes that looked good on the foxes just don't flow that well with our curvy sn's.

Too far apart! Do a i" separation! & the stripes on our cars look so good...IMO. This gets a LOT of compliments even from rabid chevy guy Mustang haters!

And the rear view...remember this is still just vinyl tape...not paint yet! My guy did an incredible job in the impossible places like around the trunk keyhole! Plus I like the balance with the side stripes too. I went after the Roush 360 R series look (edit...the Steeda badge is gone! It was from when my son had this car)

Yes on black stripes (I like the spray clear idea). No on red. Option B, use stripe money to replace crappy purple faded tint.

My vote.....absolutivly not on the red. Possibly the black if, like [MENTION=8886]Mustanger[/MENTION] said, you space them closer together. Stripes really aren't my thing, period, but that "i" separation is pretty killer.

You didn't listen to my voice of reason did you? Stripes are pure D sexy! And add a lot of aggressiveness to our cars! LOL....ignore my advice at your peril! You will be doomed to a life of no trophies at car shows, no girls hanging out of windows clamoring for a ride!...No thumbs up everywhere you go, you will be stuck in a dull boring world of like jelly beans that are indistinguishable from each other! Revolt! show your independence from the crowd! ADD THE STRIPES! Hehe......oh yeah and keep the wing & avoid the fad of all black wheels at all costs!
