Considering a Pin Stripe - Thoughts?

I've been thinking about having a pin stripe painted on the Beast, so I bought some striping tape and experimented. I'd like to know what people think of these... (Please ignore the wavy lines... this was just a temporary experiment)

Thanks,
Bear

My 2-cents... The thin red is a real nice look.

I like the red; single or double moth look good, but I'd probably go with the single.

OR

You could do the double stripe that ends mid-door, with the "Royal Bobcat" decal installed at the end of the stripe...

Single red strip would look awesome on that black beauty.

X650000 on the single red stripe. I also like the idea of the Bobcat emblem, I've seen them on the sail panel on 69's and on the front fenders.




A little color goes a long way.




The single white isn't too bad either.

Ditto ditto ditto on the single thin red stripe. Man you did an excellent job on the body and paint on that car---it looks stunning.

IF you are gonna do a stripe....go with red (IMHO)...personally, I think the car is too sweet to stripe..I'd leave it plain Eric

I also like the thin red stripe. I think it accents the shape of the beauty you have there.

Question though, are you going to have it professionally painted on or stay with the adhesive backed striping?
