Default Did something wild today...

I added stripes to my baby!!!

Originally bought these stripes for my black C7 but that is no longer with me so I thought what the hell.. Might as well put the stripes on and see what happens....

I love them!!!

Are the stripes on the roof the same size as the rear? They look like they may be smaller, but it could be the perspective of the photo.

Three things:
Looks great and the job looks excellent.
You wouldn't know anything about those black stripes on the pavement, would you?
Enjoy the eclipse. My friend who went to Vanderbilt is returning there with his wife to see it. Too bad he does not have a Vette to take on the trip!

I would have just held out one finger but the stripes look good.

looks like there is a red color band on the outside edge of the black? Was that intergrated in the stripe, or were they added separately? Where did you get it?

how did you keep them so straight? That looks fantastic. I like the style too.

Well done. I think they look even better on this car than they would have on a black one!

Nice work! I tried to install a set myself and failed, so I know it's not trivially easy at least!
