Here is another pinstripe concept, let me know what you think.


There's some residue on the leading edge of the door stripe, but it will wipe off.

Either way, I'm still unsure of it. I'm sure that ultimately the chrome will have to go.
Can't see your photos.

Maybe I need to use photobucket or something. I see them in the post, but maybe that's because the pics are on my computer.

Give me a few.

Thanks, I think that ultimately I will end up in the same position. The chrome looks really bad after doing my wheels, and I know that ultimately the whole car would benefit from just painting it.

I wonder what it would take to swap the chrome with someone's black beltline[idea]...Not that I think anyone would want to make that trade[mecry]

I like emoticons/smilies.

I believe there was a thread about swapping out the beltlines. And I think people came to the conclusion that this was too difficult. Better off with plasti-dip or vinyl.

I will be doing mine in vinyl. I have a plotter coming this next week, then I'll be doing the stripes on my FOFO in vinyl also.

I would be willing to exchange $ for these items if you do...I can't stand this plasti-dip on my car for periods longer than a week.

I will keep you posted, it should be here by Thursday or Friday. It will then be a few days for me to get the patterns right.

Thank you sir :)

I have a pretty good eye for this stuff, but then again it's what I did for 15+ years too :)

Not bad, for my first time using plasti dip...

My wife and I just ordered a platinum white Titanium hatch, and I told her I wanted to try exactly what you did out with plastidip. Looks great! I think I am going to try the RS 2dr concept I saw to.

Here's the promised headlight pictures... As you can see there's a different seam in each. We were trying different options. Neither was perfect. The shape of the headlights makes tinting a PITA...
