I've got a white 08 Z51 coupe.Lately I've had a dose of mod.fever. I was thinking about hood stripes .What do you guys think? No stripes? Torch red stripes. carbon fiber stripes,blue stripes, or maybe something subdued like a very lite mint green. let me know what you guys think thanks

I know your car is white and mine is black, but this is what I did with mine. I went with a subtle color difference so it didn't look to ricer. I get a lot of compliments, this is full sun, in dim or dark light the stripes are about invisible.

You can't really tell from the pics, but the stripe goes over the roof and trunk...stops at rear brake light/factory spolier.

That is nice. I'am tempted to go with either a real light grey,or like a very light mint green.

Not sure if you've contemplated any other mods; colored calipers for example that would "enhance" the stripe package your interested in. Perhaps something to consider as well.:cheers:

I had a white Camaro years ago and I put Blue stripes on it and it looked pretty sharp. Personally though, if you do stripes I'd paint em on or pay more for higher quality decal material. Decal stripes can sometimes shrink and fade in the sun (the ones I had were poor quality.)

Just my experience for what it's worth.;)

I had originally done a decal similar to the C5, see my avatar.
I asked for good materials.

After about 3 years the red turned to pink and the silver started flaking out.

I started again but had the stripes painted back on. I need to post a more recent picture but I like the 2-tone look.

Look on Autotrimdesign.com, they have a variety of striping packages. For white, I like Black with red accents. I did my DSOM 2005 and it was amazing... the car looked naked without them! The nicest thing about a decal is that you can always remove it if you don't really like it.
