    Opinions on these stripes?

    What do you guys think of these stripes?
    I'm on the edge of getting them or not, just not sure yet. Some people love them others don't, I'm just not sure myself yet.

    They seem to be unique and not used that often(that can be either good or bad)

    Found these pictures of the stripes on another guys car on ls1tech




    Another picture:


    Car they will be going onto:


    Color I'm thinking of is either blue or black.

    Thoughts?
    Opinions?
    Flames?


    Side question: Planning on painting my calipers when I change my brake pads. Any comments on what color I should go with? I'm planning on blue at the moment.

    Wing west makes the lip and I think also the rear wing piece. I don't know about the stripes. I am leaning more to having some custom ones made based off of the 99 CETA stripes.

    Looks kind of white trash to me. If you want stripes, I would lean more towards the ones on the 30th anniversary cars. THOSE look awesome.

    Put me in the "I like them" camp. I kinda waffle between these and the 30th anniversary stripes, the bird may be a little big on these.

    such as? lol




    Also, a lot of people seem to hate it, but it just stands out in my eye for some odd reason. It just seems very unique and a sweet design from where the stripes form. I may just get them against everyones opinions. First, I need to see a big bird on the ws6 hood. I have an obsession with birds on the hood of a Firebird.

    What I want is to see pictures of big birds on a ws6 and generic birds may look a bit weird on ws6 hoods if not specifically made for it

    I know this site warns about their big bird on a ram air hood:
    "This is a new 98-2002 Firebird Hood Bird, will not work on a Ram Air Hood. Variety of colors available. Shipping is not included."
