Hey 1Day,
Why don't you get the black stripes done on your car using sticker. You can always remove them if you change your mind 1Day oops... I meant someday.

The black on yellow looks real good. Go for it Mate!

Like Santhosh mentioned, get them done it vynil. They come off whenever you like.

Also you can look at the 360 challenge Stradle, it had a single stripe with Italian flag in it. Awesome. I myself am thinking of getting the 3 stripe M ribbon on mine.

A very tough decesion indeed. You need the tints for sure thats guaranteed.

As far as the stripes are concerned, my conclusion is similar to what your wife thought of it... go for it, since its reversible! A few weeks/months later when you think youre bored or had enough of it just peel them off!

It wont look too bad and yeah i would suggest not to go all the way to the bottom of the bumper like in the viper, rather just finish it off on the hood like the ferrari with a nose job on the vinyl and give it a good one inch thick border (maybe in grey or silver) it would look much defined that way.

i hate it, but have to live with it..dreading when it goes to 4 bucks..

but this car gives awesome gas mileage..i get 27 on the highway at upto 75-80 mph..

not bad..and in the mix i am getting 17mpg, the same as my G35 with considerably less power..anyhow i want the 1$ days to be back, so that i can push the car day in day out and also get a supercharger, thus reducing the mpg

thanks for all your point of views..i think i am going to try out and then if i dont like it, remove it by the end of the summer or wait till i have money to change the hood(required for a supercharger or a TT setup)..

I think the stripes are too common... seen almost every car over here from amby's to skoda's with those stripes...

also makes the 'vette look like a viper.... ditch the stripes and just get the tints... will look simple yet stunning... all the best...

I think a lot of you guys didnt agree, but you know i hate not being able to try something once(hell i am going to try sky diving once atleast)

anyhow i got it done...here is a teaser shot, I didnt wash the car afterwards cuz the bloody inaccurate weather man kept showing 3 days of rain and i drive the car daily..so i will wash it on sat and post better shots but here are my 2 babies....

Tints are only on some of the pictures, cuz i had got both the things on different days, anyhow..Hope it turns out good, in person i think it looks cool..

Plus I havent really seen a Corvette with stripes let alone these once, so being common is out of the question







Cheers
