Results after removing factory stripes

So I did search the forum on removing the factory stripes before posting this.thanks for everyone that chimed in on those posts with great tips, I now know how to remove them. My question is, what can I reasonably expect for the paint underneath? Have you found the paint to match the rest of the car or was the color better since it wasn't faded. I recently bought a '08 that has the factory stripes. I would like to remove them and put a super snake stripe on instead. I'm just worried the paint will leave obvious ghost stripes. Prior to me owning it, it was cared for well. It's a low mileage car in great condition. Appreciate any input.

At the 7 year mark, fade is going to happen unless the car was stored/parked indoors.......if its too bad, then just be prepared to put the oem stripe back on (ie buy another set).

The paint under the stripes will probably be brighter, but won`t the Super Snake stripe cover where they were?
