first off. you're pic doesn't work.

but anyway, it depends on the vehicle and how you choose to do it. i've seen some that look great, but others that just don't fit the car.

what it boils down to is whether you like it or not. after all; it's your car and you have to live with it.

best advice is to look up pics on your car with them and then you decide to get em. theres a reason you bought the car and not someone else. its yours. do what you want.

If I had a 1974 Chevy Monte Carlo, I would say yes, if I had a 2008 Focus, I would say no.

I think it depends on the body lines of the car.

My Cherokee looks awesome with pinstriping, because it's a box.

A 96-07 Taurus ... no.

08+ Focus ... I don't think it'd look good

It depends on body lines and taste. My Focus, never. My F150 will be getting one. I put bedliner from the body line down and it looks very nice. A pin stripe right above that line will distract from any imperfections and give it a nice distinction between the black and white which the truck is now.

Mine came with pinstripping from the dealer which looked great but i removed it. It looks on if it flows with the lines. but it comes down to what do you like

Isn't that a personal choice for the person who owns the car?
