Do You Have Stripes On Your Car???

I'm thinking of adding some pin stripes on my car. Do any of you have it on your car? I was thinking of using dark grey so it won't stand out too much. Here's a striping I did with MS paint. Any other stripe ideas that may look good?

Not classy

I dont think that pinstripes look good on any car. I'm just sayin how I feel about it, so if you think it looks good, then by all means do it.
BTW, nice c43

I hear you, thats why I was asking if anyone has them so I can see how it looks. The stripes I want to put in is very THIN where one has to look good to see it. If I do it I will post some pics.

i think pin stripes are kind of outdated, well not really but are more like classic looking. But maybe ill think different once I see them, most pinstripes I see are pretty obvious, maybe a subtle pin stripe would be ok

are you thinking about getting the vinyl ones or having them prof. painted on?

If it were a race car, thick dually racing stripes down the hood are cool But little thin ones are horrible, might as well add Ford F-150 Lariat badging next, if you do it. INMYOP thin pin lining looks like azz on any ride/product of the 70's/80's leave it there

Your ride looks gr8 now.

I put it on like 2 days back but I am having mixed feeling about it. i guess the blacked out grill will make it look better.
