Off-Set Stripes

Where does everyone get their off-set stripes? And which color do you guys think would be a good combo with Sterling Gray?

go to the Sonic tiki lounge thread under discussion topics. he was 3M apple something, neon green vinyl, offset stripes. looks rad. don;t know other details but i'm sure he'd fill you in. in fact i know when browsing through it he actually said where, and has a ruler showing how he measured and installed em..

CJ I just went to local parts store and browsed their vinyl striping catalog with samples. I chose a champagne color that matched the interior of my SEL. I ended buying 3" and 1" widths and used blue painters tape to get the stripes straight with a consistent space.

More like 1987, the heyday of the IROC-Z.

IMO, I say you off center them wherever you feel looks best. It's your car!

As far as color, maybe go with the color of your car but in a flat finish. Subtlety can be tasteful.
