Need Advice: Stripe(s) Color for Black 2013

Hey all.

I am wanting to add some stripes to my new black 2013, but I am not sure what color I should do...

My initial thought was matte black on black, but I just did a test by placing a section from a matte black fender hash mark set, to see how it looked, and it just didn't look like what I wanted.
Made it look more like a smudge or fade in the paint.

I want something more subtle.
Thinking maybe a gray?

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I think grey is a great idea.
I love the way this looks:

How about instead of matte black, you use satin
It looks like matte black, but glossy!
Or you could do carbon fiber stripes!

I have an all black 2014, I'll attach an image and I'm thinking of doing plasti dip black + 1/2 coats of silver metallizer for some silver flaking in the hash marks / hood strips I'll be doing.

I'll let you know how it looks for sure, I like the idea of subtle 2 tone myself, and dark grey/silver seems to compliment the black the best without completely losing the stealth look. The colors/white look great, but I'm not that into "loud" cosmetics.

What do you mean by doing "plasti dip black + 1/2 coats..."?

I am currently thinking gray or POSSIBLY white.

BTW: Is there any difference between the 2013 and 2014 (besides the year of course)

Any pictures of it in normal daylight?

Is that a specific type of blue, or just plain old blue?

BTW: Does that picture you attached have anything on it? I am not noticing anything, but the picture doesn't come up very large

Boom. I wanted this. But it'll only look good painted. No vinyl.

The car's paint looks like it is matte black and not the standard "gloss"

Any idea what the cost is (approx range) for getting stripes (just top stripes)

It does look matte now that I look at it better but it's still the same general idea. Gloss or matte black still sexy on those cars

Should I do vinyl or paint? Would like it to look classy and not look cheap or "raised" looking, so I am was thinking paint, however I know paint is a whole lot more #@$#@ permanent (say if I was to decide I dont like it???) and more expensive then vinyl, but can you get vinyl to look like it is more "painted on" then a raised look?

It's still kinda raised, just not as much as vinyl

I think lava red stripes would probably look cool considering in most lighting it looks black anyways until under the sunlight when all the metallic comes out. Never seen it done but think it would look pretty cool

One of the things that I have done in the past is test it out with Plasti Dip. Its pretty inexpensive and comes in a spray paint can. If you wanna test the look on your car it sprays on. It you dont like it, then it just peels off. Comes in all sorts of colors

Speaking of Plasti Dip...

I saw some videos on https://www.dipyourcar.com where they Plasti Dipped the ENTIRE car.

Wondering if Plasti Dipping Stripes is a way to go? (Not sure on prices between Plasti Dip and Vinyl)

Any negatives to plasti dipping stripes?

You'll see mostly everyone on here knows about plasti dip. Some think it looks cheap, others like the cheap cost and 0 consequence aspect. I like it before it lets me change things while I save for bigger uprades. Dipped my wheels, pype bomb axle tips, might do some hash marks or hood lines. Its great stuff imo and Fonzie has a lot of great vids out there.

I did my front Chrome part of my grille and it looks great from 5 feet away, up close it does come off cheap. Imo I would much rather go with vinyl stripes than plasti dip. American muscle is very generous with the amount strip u get, I scrapped the hood strip and still had some left over when it was done.(gt 500)
