Need opinions

Alright so I took the stripes off and everything but I didn't take off the GT500 part of the side stripe, that's a badge of honor to me. It just doesn't match well it looks like well the side stripe is missing. So I've looked on AM and am just wondering if anyone had any other thoughts I'll put a pic up to give a better visual.

It's grow on me over the past weeks. Funny thing so I put this on all my social media sites and got feed back from there too. All the guys love the strips only a few didn't. Girls hated the stripes and love it without. "You're finally growing up" was actually stated on there! Given I'm 24 lol so I know that's not true!

Growing up is over rated.

It looks "to be continued" in my eyes... It doesn't look finished of that makes sense. Maybe some white side skirts to make it look full underneath the door.

I saw a PW GT500 without stripes in person for the first time a couple weeks ago. The PW hides the body lines too much. I think the stripes help show the shape of the car.

The right kind of white can do wonders. Why did you remove the stripes?

I Would remove it all, and keep it a sleeper

White can look good or very... very bad.

Any color accented with another can look great.

The stripes got scratched in an unfortunate removal of wax build up. Trust me I wasn't happy at what I did. Well I mean the heat diffuser, front grill and snakes don't really make it a sleeper lol nor the muffler deletes lol

Well I mean like I said earlier I've seen more gt's and v6's with shelby stripes than actual gt500's so I'll disregard that comment as being true. The amount of money someone would spend on making a v6 look and sound like my shelby they could have bought a shelby for lol
