Along the sides? What color?

I think a semi-transparent that'* just a shade or two off the OEM color would look cool. Coming off the front tires and going down both doors? I was considering a very subtle racing flag checker pattern the same way at one time.

There are vendors on ebay and the net that sell these in vinyl transfer format.

Could be cool, could be not. I personally wouldn't do something like this through e-bay, though. If the color of the photo is just a touch off, you could end up in the "not" category.

But, ghost flames could definitely work!!

Hey Kevin...

I'd ask someone if they could do a PS of it. Really, without seeing it actually on your specific car it'* hard to say yay or nay...
