Not a fan of racing stripes how ever side stripes are ok I thought about making a yenko beretta , what they would have made it like perhaps the oh ever lasting thread I created about a northstar in a beretta with a 5 speed now that would be a yenko beretta

im doing a british style offset, high gloss electric blue on a satin black. I like the contrast of gloss to satin.

When done properly, looks great.

When done poorly, makes the car look cheap.

If your going to get racing stripes. Do it via vinyl. That way if u get tired of it you can take it off. You can even use plasti-dip to make stripes. u just have to pin the stripes out. cover what u don't want sprayed and spray away. It peels right off if u get tired of it.

X2. I love properly done racing stripes, bad ones make my eyes roll. Gloss on satin sounds like a very good start, and off-set sounds cool too -I like asymmetrical cars. :pardon:

8) My Northstar five-speed Indy is due for paint (like about half of my poor cars!), and I'm planning on striping it... I might stripe my Yellow Indy too, since I need to replace and repaint the hood anyway. I think black stripes look good on yellow cars...
