Squash the stripes..............

IMO "we" look better without them depending on the color

I prefer no stripes as well. It looks cleaner without them. Some do look good on some colors, especially if they follow that line in the fenders. I'm removing mine because they are well below that line and are distracting IMO.

Oh, don't get me wrong now, I love my stripes, but they're so faded.

My first bonne had the pin striping, and all of my friends told me to get rid of it. I would have to say ditch the strips
