I added some stripes to my car recently but still not sure if I like them or not.
Actually I'm pretty close to pulling them off.

What do you'll think? mustang 296.jpg

You know, with most black mustangs, I would say a good shine is the best exterior accessory, so don't put stuff like that on there because it takes away from the shine. However, I think that the stripes on yours brings out the fog lights on the grill. Also, I think your shaker hood wouldn't look as good without them.

I think they look very nice. What don't you like about them?
I don't know, maybe just use to having the car solid color for so long.

I think they look excellent. Although its whatever you think looks best. After all, you're the one who has to see it everyday

I think it looks alright, its neat to just be a little different. However, considering I drive a black stang myself, I'm not a big fan of the stripes. If you leave them, I would at least do the front bumper.:bigthumbsup

I think they look really good. I agree with the other comment the shaker stands out a little more with the stripes on.

I think they look fine. I'm not sure what your objection to them is. Why not try living with them for a while?

I just took off my GT/CS stripes tonight and i'm lukewarm about it. Maybe give it some time and see if they grow on you.

stripes

i think if i were going to do stripes i would run two 10" or 12" stripes that were an inch apart from each other all the way over the car...... like cover the whole front bumper too.......i like the stripes on your car, but i think i would cover your front bumper. i have the steeda hood now, so i'm not too sure i will be getting stripes anymore.

I actually had the stripes for the front bumper and started getting in a hurry and tore one of them, but have some more bumper stripes on order.

That's what I think I'll do.
The main reason I bought the vinyl stripes was if I didn't like them I could take them off.

Sounds like a plan.
Thanks for everyones opinions.

I like solid colors, and especially Black. That is just me though. You had the car solid, and it shined a lot I am sure. The car looks good,just not as good as it would look all black.:bigthumbsup

The way I see it, the issue with your stripes right now is a lack of commitment. It's not like they're flat black on gloss to commit to being a subtle accent, but then they're not flashy enough to be a bold statement either. Right now they're just kinda middle of the road "blah". I say, if you're gonna keep them, then commit to being a guy with stripes and take it a step farther, or lose them all together.

Dude, I think the stripes look fine, but if you have a nagging doubt about whether to keep em' then you will always think about it.

I respect your opinion

I really like the photoshop, maybe that's what it's missing.
Thanks
