New Racing Stripes on the RL. Silver w/ Black

So I got bored the other night and decided to paint racing stripes on my car. I used Duplicolors Bug Shield Temporary Bra paint. So it will wash right off.

I think it looks pretty good but if I were really going to get it done I would go wider with the stripes.

Here are some bad pics with my camera phone.

"wider is better". I'm personally a big fan of racing stripes. If you blacked out your car (taillights, headlights, wheels, tint) it would look so sick with black stripes like that.

Definatly!

I probably wont do it any time soon. But its fun to get a good idea of what it would look like. Plus it only took me and my brother about 2 hours to tape everything off. Time well spent.

tint the stripes right down the back window. it's a nice effect only a silver car with dark gray/black stripes can pull off.

Interesting idea to see what they would really look like on your car. I don't think the front stripes should go all the way down the front bumper though....start them on the hood or something...I'm a big fan of Scott's stripes on his car.

If I did ever do them....I'd do the same style as his:

I just like how yours start on the hood....looks really clean

Fiddy's look good too since they have that extra pinstripe though....but yours look better

Thanks!! I like being a bit unique! I thought these stripes would be popular on our cars but I haven't seen anyone else with the same kit. 50 bought the kit in silver but never put it on, for anyone looking for a deal in silver. Dan, I think it would blend into your car a bit too much
