What do you guys think?

Here is my Mk1 (03) focus SE with the spi and ib5 manual transmission. It's in this (uncommon for a focus but common on a Taurus) tundra green metallic. I thought it would be interesting to pin stripe it and this was my first try. What do you guys think and what do you think would look better?

the pin stripes look ok. i have the same paint and it is kinda boring to me. you might consider window tint in the future... it's functional and good-looking.

cheers!

If I were you I'd use that pinstriping as a masking edge then back mask it and fill in the stripe with plastidip in whatever color you choose. Spray it on good and thick then when you get tired of it you can just peel it off easy as cake.

Looks good, I'm not a fan of that color car but that's a personal thing. Also I spy a cat

I'd just compound/polish & then wax it.
