Re: to stripe or not to stripe

Are you talking about rocker stripes?

Re: to stripe or not to stripe

I cannot tell if your car is silver or white BUT if it's silver go with a darker silver for the stripes...like a stone gray...if it's white then black is nice.

Re: to stripe or not to stripe

Silver and black would look nice but I would stay away from the rocker stripes on the bottom of the door. The car looks much cleaner without those.

Those aren't the actual rocker stripes I was talking about. That I actually like....I almost bought a dealer package 07 a couple years ago that had full FRPP suspension,cai and tuner,20" Shelby wheels,custom interior upgrades and almost the same stripe package. It was the same color also. Looks pretty good!

Re: to stripe or not to stripe

I will say your body style is the best for rally stripes. The body lines work with them much better than the pre 04's.

I like the hood stripes on the car you posted above and the simple rally stripes you can get. Not a huge fan of the boss style stripes that run down the fenders and into the rockers...just the hood/roof/decklid stripes look cleaner.

I think you should mimic that setup. It's awesome. I would do it on mine if I had one that body style
