    Should I do stripes on my SOM?

    Some some reason i feel like my SOm needs something in the exterior. Ive been thinking about stripes. everyone tells me it looks just fine the way it is. The way i see it is to a Fbody owner my car might seem bad ass, because they can see the custom modifications being made, but to a average Joe it might seem like just a plain orange camaro.anyways vote for what you guys think looks better. I can use some advice.
    here are some pics.

    or
    How about this...I know P told me in the past that i would have change my grill. I made some mods to make it fit my color scheme.Manta w/chrome hood decal and chrome ss hood grill. that way the manta matches the roof and the hood decal brings out some chrom along with the grill.

    Oh man.. those side flags look badass!

    I would try them in black though, with CAMARO just being orange showing through. Would be a bit more subtle and would fit in a little better. Can't tell ya whether the front stripes would be too much or not with that. Could look real nice.

    Try it in black though!

    Don't listen to them. They're jealous of the SOM. Post up some black stripes

    I think you should do whichever one you like. If its 'wow thats a really cool custom camaro' your looking for I think your going the wrong direction though. Especially since average joe will just think its a 'plain orange camaro' with stripes. If it's differentiating your ride from the crowd that your after, maybe browse this subforum and look at some other ideas/areas to mod that will make it stand out. Good luck and nice ride!

    agreed side markings are too much you're changing your cars look from a sports/muscle car to a pimped out ricer look... the problem with these cars is people tend to get carried away... keep it clean... you're going in a magazine...

    SOMSS are sick! It looks great just like it is. But it's your car, do what makes you happy. It's not worth it if you're not happy. Do you have TD's under the axle? It looks cool from the side.
