Very nice, the pinstripe accentuates the lines of the car.

Silver cars with a lustrous finish, like yours, always look great to me.

Normally Im not a fan of pinstripes but that actually turned out very good. it looks natural on the car and blends well.
Ive seen similar things done to the dodge avengers and chargers but it always looks out of place to me when done on those models.
all in all youve done a good job, turned out nice. Subtle and blends with the over all look of the car. Good job.

Most important is whether or not you like it since it is your car. Think it looks just fine, may actually make the cars lines stand out a little where they may not have been as noticeable without the striping. Whoever did the job, did real well with keeping parallel with the cars lines.

My 6 year constantly asks why. What adults can learn from 5 and 6 year olds, to listen with your ears and mind open. Hard to learn when you don't listen ......

Thanks for the responses! I actually did it myself, and took me about an hour just to make sure I was precise as possible by just eye-balling the geometry of it. I HATE having a vehicle that looks like everyone elses. I want to upgrade to aftermarket 20s, but I have a wedding Sept. 1st, and an expense for rims is completely out the budget.

I'm also not really a fan of pin-striping. However....done really subtle like this, gives a sophisticated look! Good work man!

Unknown to me at the time I striped my Impala almost identically except colors are different. Mine is a Navy Blue Metallic stripe on White Diamond Tintcoat.

Needless to say I like yours. As my wife stated, it gives the car a more chiseled look.
