Default Opinion on detailing...

Considering adding a pinstripe, either light gray or silver.

Opinions appreciated Also, if yes, paint on or stick on?

I'm on the fence about the idea. I'd like to see a photoshop or something. Paint if anything though.

Okay, my graphic tools suck but here'* my thoughts. I'm thinking a little heavier top line, narrower lower line. Kind of an arrowhead at the front.

I think it would be cool. I've always wanted to go to my body shop and have the gold pin stripe removed and have a old school pinstripper put something on my car in silver.

Do not do it... the reason I like GXPs is cuz the body is not tainted by any cladding or pinstripes .. i think it would look out of place.

With RPB myself. The GXP is so smooth and adding a pinstripe would take away from the lines and flow of the car IMO...
