Cleans up pretty nice

Love these cars. Still working on getting parts together for the LTZ rear end swap. Also still trying to figure out what I want to do to replace the current pinstripe.

I like them best without pinstripes. If they're just tape, they'll pull right off.

Without any pinstripes it's just a little too naked/plain for me. I'd like to get someone to paint them on, maybe even outline the scalloped hood a bit. Also want to change the rims to make it look more like a sport sedan.

What about a pin stripe that would go with the quarter line on the back 3rd? Painted of course.

Hahaha yuppp. Love your ride man. Colors are perfect. And them emblems. I'm just not sure if it would look as good on mine with the colors basically reversed lol. Blue car with white/silver pinstripes.

If thats what works for you then roll with it. I like a little something extra on my vehicle. No fun if it looks like everyone else's.

I have had more compliments on my car since the subtle changes I have made to include the pinstripes than before without them. I would venture to say many people would disagree with your assessment to include myself however, you are entitled to your opinion.

Thank you for the compliment. As for looking good on your car, it is your car. If that is what you like then do it! Only person you have to impress is you so I bet it will look great no matter what!!!

Thank you.
I just don't like them on newer cars, most everyone I know feels the same way. I like the rest of your car just not the gaudy pinstriping.
If you like it however, drive it, you don't need to impress anyone but yourself.
