Pinstripe added to the 66

I had a pinstripe painted on the 66 yesterday, I am undecided if I like it or not. What do you guys think?

I like it, it helps break up the fender to hood. Ever think about putting a thinner pinstripe directly below that one with a small gap in between? That might look good too.

Randy,
Usually I don't like the stripe on the 66-67. I think it makes them look kind of boxy, but your color combination doesn't do that at all! It looks great!
Linda
PS keep the stripe....

You did a great job. I'll be the odd man out here and say that I liked the GTO better without. Considering though, its a beautiful car so the pin stripe doesn't have that much pull either way to change that.

Randy,

I like the look. As most have said, it really adds depth to that cream color. If the car was red or black, I probably would have not done the pin stripping.

Randy, I like your pinstripe because it breaks up the light color paint. Not sure I like the pinstripe on darker colors (my red '67 has no pinstripe), but on your color scheme it looks great. My vote is to keep it. Great restoration. With all the photos you have posted as the restoration progressed, I feel as if I've seen this car get restored from the ground up. Regards, Paul.
