Stripes

Toying around with the idea of black racing stripes..

quick ms paint with a scrap of vinyl laying on the hood:


only had a single roll so I mirrored the image..

Thought about doing the raised edges of the powerdome hood black, but cant find vinyl rolls in that size. Kits on ebay are pretty cheap for the amount of visual it would add. I would do the bottom of the grille, roof, and tailgate as well, but not the bumpers unless I find an edge one cheap..

I'm bored!

Currently looking at this kit:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=130296503026

All I need is 45" for the hood, 40" Roof, and 20" for the tailgate.. and I like the pinstripes with it..

that would look great, but your truck is SO clean that it would almost be a shame. But if its pretty cheap do it and rock it until you feel like taking it off. ive been planning on grabbing some of that temporary spraypaint and doing something crazy on my truck

I say give it a shot. It's a decal, so if it looks bad, just remove it.

I think the matte black side body stripes would look good, you ever considered getting black/gun metal wheels?

No stripes. Truck looks clean as is. Just don't want your truck to lean towards "domestic rice".
