  • Added pinstripe to new paint...thoughts

    I am finishing up the outside now on the 51. Had some recommendations to add a pinstripe between the colors. Finished up one side last night. Thoughts on the white? Also included pics on not having pinstripe.[

    Pinstripes are so good ! They either add to or finish off almost anything , looks great.

      Looks mighty nice, even thou I would've put the outer stripe a wee bit further out, but I've made misstakes before.

        I think it adds a nice touch, and sets off the two tone nicely. Are they painted on, or decal strips? There was a guy at our local car show doing pin stripes and designs. His work looked great, but I could not decide what I thought might look good on the Hawk.

          These are vinyl stripes.

            I like it, the stripes set off the top nicely.

              Forgive me? I'm sure, it would significantly increase the difficulty. But I think, it would look better if you continued the stripes completely around, Underneath the windshield, and the back glass?

                The pinstripe will go underneath the windshield I just haven’t finished it yet. I wondered about going all the way around and I could do that but I didn’t know how it would look doing it that way.

                  I'm not completely sure either, it's just my suspicion, that it will? But, you'll never know for sure, unless you try it? Since the're just vinyl it'll be easy enough to remove if you don't like it?

                    I only have enough pinstriping to do what I’m doing right now. But I will order more once I determine whether I like it to go all the way around. Getting it to go all the way around without bubbling or binding will be tough.

                      I like it much better with than without. The stripes make a good break between the two colors.

                        I like the stripes. Nice thing about the sick on is you can go all the way around and if you don't like it just remove as much as you want.
