Default 30th TA flair on a Bonneville....

throwing this out there guys...any input?
TA vents on the way. Since my bonneville is bright white...
always loved the 30th TA colour scheme...
sorry about the pencil rendering...I`m a bit old school.
Stripes would follow to back, including spoiler. Angled stripes
on hood to match our contours...will have to change side overlays to blue.

I think it would look awesome and still without over killing it. The strips in the photoshop flared out near the windsheild, unlike your drawing where it went straight, matching the lines of the hood, but that looks good too. Are you going to paint it or stick it?

Mute it a bit. Consider gray. Or blue-gray (light). Less contrast.

I`ll be sticking it. That way it comes off if I want it to.
Painting wouldn`t be cost effective...unless I`m painting
the whole car anyways. Maybe bill is right....mute it a bit?
Steel-bluish grey? Don`t know yet. Decided to go with the TA extractors...
thanks to willwren for the writeup.....get the beer, where`* my dremal?

I like it!

I have been pondering the same kind of idea lately, except on large stripe, and in gold on my hood. Something similar to the New Charger Daytona Hoods, except instead of black, gold.

I still need to get around to finishing my GTA vents. I already have holes started in my hood from way back in October...
