    Looking for opinions!

    I always like to keep my cars clean and simple, I saw this fender stripe on a silver tbss and really liked it and thought about tossing a flat black fender stripe on mine. What do you guys think?

    Not a fan either, never liked those fender stripes. However, I do think they look better on that TBSS than on F-bodies...

    Yea they aren't and its too far back for my taste.


    I would definitely like it in flat black with the stripes the same width and probably a little more forward than in the pic.

    They look good. Stick with the flat black or charcole for sure.
    Just remember personalize it to what YOU want, and so it doesn't look like every other boring black TBSS out there.

    I'm not a fan of fender stripes on any vehicle. It is YOUR vehicle though so do what makes YOU happy. I would definitely go with flat black if you are going to do it though.

    Yeah the more I look at it the more I dont like them. I could always order them, they are only $30.00, and put them on and if I dont like them they peel right off. I just want to do something aesthetically, I just feel it needs something but I am not to sure what that is?

    i am a fan of a pinstripe have put one on all of my cars except for the V because of the sharp line right where the stripe would normally go. a lot of people don't like them but I think they are a nice subtle addition.

    It depends really. Some cars go better with, others go better without. Still doesn't cost much to try.

    Mine is that way right now...
    Outline the bowtie in the grill with brushed aluminum?? Been thinking about doing the outline in Red Jewel on mine.

    I know I am getting the SS badges in gloss black soon. As well as painting the calipers black. The brake vents up front are going to get painted as well (would love to find a powdercoating shop that can handle plastic though).

    I have had SVE do a ton of work for me, mostly on the Audi and they do really good work and are right down the street from us, not to sure if they do powdercoating but its a good place to start? http://sveautobody.com/

    Hate pin stripes with a passion! But I am starting to lean toward something like this.


    And go from the factory polished 20 inch rims to 22 inch chrome.
