racing stripe? i would like your 2 cents.

hopefully this is in the right section since i could not find a thread for vehicle graphics .

ok so i was thinking of putting an offset stripe on the drivers side , and was wondering , what do you guys think of this , not only will i put a stripe i am also going to ( on the back window ) continue the same stripe kind-of ghost style with nightshade or rustoleum lens tint. so what do u guys think of this

Moved your thread to the general car chat area since all your asking for are peoples opinions. The Technical Chat area section is for technical discussions relating to general maintenance, electrical issues, engine trouble, and recalls.
