    Racing Stripes

    I'm heavily debating black racing stripes for my T/A. Should I go vinyl or paint? And can I get some pics of other T/A's with stripes so I can decide if I want to stripe down the entire front and so I can see what the rear would look like? Thanks.

    You could change your mind and revert back to original with vinyl but the fade marks would be waiting for you. Just my .02 Once you paint it's on there to stay. I had a car that had painted and then cleared over the top pinstripe and it was not a happy time.

    Go vinyl so you can remove it later if you don't like. Since it's a ws6 I think the blackbird style stripes would look great on their.

    No doubt, go vinyl Then if you really like it, paint. I had red stripes on my car for over a year. I just took them off a few months ago. I was worried that they would have left some kind of mark on the hood, but, you can't even tell they were there.

    Oh, and, I am much happier without them now.

    Yeah, I almost didn't put any stripes on mine when I got my ram air hood and it took me awhile to decide.

    I knew that I didn't want anything gaudy so, I got the nuts and went for the flat black stripes for mine. It was an immediate hit.

    You may change your mind several times and that's okay. Takes awhile to figure out what works and what doesn't.

    I think they look perfect on your car. Not to much, not to little... just right
