Some ideas I thought I would share. When it comes to stripes, I prefer them when the ends have a terminated end. Looks cleaner and better planned.

The pinstripe around the main stripe is something else I prefer as well, I figured the holden cars were similar enough to a Bonneville to be used as example so I wouldn't have to open Photo Shop tonight.
