reason for the removal of the striping? truck was in for repair work on the front and to correct a previous repair. they had to remove the striping from the driver rear and we decided to just start over w/ a clean slate.

If you can find a ' flat black ' or Matte type of stripe, THAT would look amazing. Maybe a very dark grey?
