I got bored yesterday and had some pinstripe tape lying round....

Here are a few pics of how it came out. I might either leave it or do it again in red, orange and yellow since the wheels have a red stripe. It is just PEP boys pinstripe tape I had left over on a big roll I got for one of my Motorbike helmets....

OK, sounds good. I'll do a few at lunch. It IS subtle but since I am older....(haha!) it would be foolish for me to do BOLD graphics like I would like to do! I think just the fact I want a Carbon hood, and a body kit is bad enough!

Honestly, its not bad. I think you need a different set of wheels though. It doesnt quite match the look.

I am now very curious to see your car. By what you said are you being smug and not saying it needs something like Daytons or something like that?

The funny thing is, some of my friends saw it in these pics and didn't like it or only liked it. When they see the car in person, they all think it looks great. Funny how pics from different angles or even multiple angles can't convey some graphics well.

I think you took that the wrong way, I just think that the car has a simple and clean look, and the wheels are kind of busy with the black and polished appearance. I think silver wheels would set your look off more.

Ok, I get it now. I actually love these wheels for the looks and performance. Back to the whole in person deal, they are far from blingy and are really not polished. The silver is a satin silver almost natural aluminum look and the dark part is actually dark grey and there is even a red stripe on the rim too.
