My wife bought a 2008 Impala LT and I started this thread to post from start to finish what we do to the car. So here is what we have done tonight. We have the other side to do tomorrow. :beer:

I have to say I am not a huge fan of any stripe's but, I am kinda growing on these. Black on white helps change my mind as well though. I also love the small "pin stripe" around it. I would have to see the finished product and full picture to make up my mind though. It looks like paint to me but, is it plasti-dip? What measures/prep did you do? Any clear coating or polishing/wax afterwards?

Not a fan, but to each their own. Just what ever you do, dont put stripes on the roof. GM never put stripes on the roofs of the cars.

Agree stripes on the hood and trunk are fine, just leave the roof alone :eek:k3: Or possibly plasti-dip the roof as well. That would be a mix-up and might look good. Could always peel off if you don't like it

Lookin good! I def think that having the 'pinstripe' and the full stripe closer looks better. can't wait to see the progress!

Had to take a break to help a buddy change his breaks. When I get home in a few I will finish the pinstripe.

Here are some of the car parked on a hill in my yard. Now to do the trunk. :beer: Just remember this is my first big job with plasti-dip.
