Default C3 Racing Stripe pics

Hello all, I am in the process of getting my 77 stripped down and painted. My plan is to keep it the original dark metallic silver color but I was thinking of adding a metallic burnt orange stripe down the middle possibly with a L88 hood (for better air cleaner fitment). Anyone have a pic of a C3 with a stripe (not hash marks)

Thanks
Steve

I'm thinking about a C5 Lemans Commerative style stripe on my 68 when I get to the paint part of the project. Something like my current car or the gone but not forgotten 92 in the background.
