    Not realy my cup o'tea, but it looks clean, and that always looks good. I dont think I'd put 'em on the roof though. I tend to lean towards the wider stripes.
    but it looks very clean, straight, and sorta tough. Good job.

    -'06 Goat, black (A4) -
    -'92 Ferarri F40 (M5) -

    Not on the top, IMO; hood and trunk only. I like them though. I think Pontiac should have done more aggressive things like this w/these cars from the start, from '04 I mean. Instead of just bringing them out looking like a slightly different version of a Grand Am or the old Grand Prix (from the front). They should have done what they did in '05 or '06, right away in '04, in other words. Should have done at least that much. Possibly even more; offer a racing striped model (as yours looks now OP), for example, and / or offer what they call the "Sports Appearance Package" as standard on one model. Would have sold a lot more had they had the hood scoops, the "revised" ('06) taillights, taller larger rear spoiler on the trunk, and possibly racing stripes as well, IMO.

    So where did you have that done, OP ?

    I like them its gives the goat a fuller look, better porportions.Mayby 2 to 3 inches wider in between the stripes spread them out just a little more. IMO. You said you got the material youreself could you make a red accent stripe down the side of the car. Ebay has one but its to swooshy for me not straight enough, like the charger from the movie dirty mary crazy lary it was yellow with a black stripe down the side but it looked more muscle car. But instead of it being black and saying 440 i would of course want mine to be red and say 350. Just a thought let me know what you think. Thanks

    I think they look pretty clean. IMO I would definately make them wider and go over the roof.

    im not a goat owner so i dont know how much my opinion counts for.. but i say it would look alot better if the thickness of the stripe flowed better with the grill on the front... i think it looks decent so its not really bad but it could look a lot better with that change.. as for the back and top i dont really know how to flow that

    I like them just because it sets it apart from other GTOs. It seems like every GTO i see where i live is bone stock and they all look the same so some change is nice

    I like them at the width that they are now. Don't get too flamboyant. The black stripes look good on the red. I dont think you should do the roof but it's your car.

    I'd go 1/2" wider to the inside and another 1 1/2-2" wider on the outside.
    The only thing that i do not like is looks like chevy heritage stuff, wich is very
    cool if its going on a chevy, pontiac, not so much. IMO.
