Default New pinstriping choice. POLL- Please Vote and comment!

Here are the pictures of the choices of pinstriping i have. I got samples and put them on the old fender i had laying around. I layed my rear floormat on the fender to show interior color (the fabric is slightly lighter than the floormat).
Please vote on which one you would like best on the car, i have an idea i was looking for opinions. I took as many pictures as i could to best show you the differences in colors and the differences from different angles (I am definately going with the original SIZE and TYPE..... COLOR is the only thing that might change)
From left to right:
Cherry- A ; Maroon - B; Metallic Red - C; Original - D

ALWAYS do metallic anything on the body. Flat paint and stripes is so bland, if you're doing it, why not do it nice?

I will really only look at cars that have metallic/pearled paint.

Yea, i would have done the whole car metallic somthing or other, but then the
-door jams
-engine bay walls
-hood undeside
-hood edges
-trunk edges
-fenderwells
-painted underbody

ALL will not match the exterior coat and that sucks even worse then having a flat car.

Especially after all the feedback metallic is definatly what im going with (it was also the one i chose before i posted )

Definately the metallic pinstriping. Is there a (significant) price premium over the regular stuff?
