If you could get matte black stripes with a red pinstripe, that would look sick!

your car looks amazing!
if i could recommend one thing, swap out your plastic louvers with some aluminum ones, or get them smoothed out.
i swapped my plstic ones to aluminum and they looked 100000 times better.
then i took them off and returned them because I wasn't happy with the way it adhered to the glass.

You're going to have to sand them down or something first to get rid of the texture.

Mr. Alefire:

You swapped the plastic ones to aluminum and they looked 100000 times better.

So then you took off and returned them because you weren't happy with the way it adhered to the glass.

So then you put them back on again?

IMO, you need to stop eating the Frosted Flakes for breakfast.

No, I got rid of the plastic ones and returned the aluminum.
My rear window is clean right now.
It would rattle at 80+ mph and was unbearable at 100+
Also, 2 of the 6 brackets would not adhere to the glass even after the body shop tried 4 types of epoxy.

No its not plasti dip its vynil tape. It sticks pretty hard and dosent seem like it will come off by itself unless you really try and take,it,off.

So I'm guessing you're not selling it no more. I would do 2 10' matte black stripes
