    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    might I suggest a charcoal gray? I think the matte black looks rad, but might be too ambiguous-might be the photo though...have you seen anything like that in person?

    Eh i agree with the charcoal grey, i dont think it will look good, even leaving it alone i would suggest over getting them in black

    If the car is solid black, I say leave it the way it is....unless you wanted to go Gold, white or silver. That is just my opinion though.

    I think it looks pretty damn good. But thats on a SS. Stripes go great down the center of a SS.

    Down the middle of a TA, ehhh ... maybe.

    Edit : just saw the TA picture.... I dont like the white on the black TA...

    I would leave it alone. The TA looks mean as fuck without them. It almost takes away from it.

    I kinda like the flat black stripes. I also like the gunmetal rims on a black car.

    As previously stated, flat black stripes roll better with the maro body. The t/a looks mean as it is really. Don't get me wrong, i have plans for a flat black stripe when I get my ultra z hood, but that will flow better for my vehicle. It'll look bitchin either way but i think your car looks great as is!

    whenever you are unsure about making mods to your exterior. Always ask yourself.

    What would David Hasselholf (Michael Knight) do? And youll be fine.

    No one ever messes with the holf.....
