You know racing stripes are good for another 50 hp I hear.

And thanks Sam, and Randall. Now I'm hungry. Mmmm doughnuts. Fast food.

Thats just the spoiler, just think of how much hp i will gain when i do the rest of the car. but will it rub off during washing with gloss coats?

Well if I like the effects of the cheap rattle can then I think I'll do the entire car like that. thought about throwing a newer model GA spoiler on it.

As long as you have it clear coated it should be fine. It wont look great using a rattle can, but will look OK.

Just dont wash the car! Stripes down the sides would give it an even faster look.

Haha, I dont really like the bars in the middle, I might go for to smaller bars down one side? I think I want to put a newer GA spoiler on it... different but not too goofy

I once saw a Dodge Neon with stripes, front-to-back, made out of duct and electrical tape. Glad to hear you're using paint.
