Default 2000 SSEi - Stripes?

OK, so I am obviously not an artist... but what do you think about stripes on Bonnevilles?

Do that in a gray or silver only a couple shades darker than your paint. Subtle. It'll look a TON better. I still plan to do this someday, but it looks better on the 92-99 IMO. 2 have done it before me, one with the same green. Looked VERY good, but I have a dark color to begin with.

I like light stripes on dark paint (white stripes on green looks good).

I agree with the color suggested by will. Kinda like the colors on Eleanor from Gone in 60 Seconds. I would start the stripes at the grill openings and have them the same width as that and the center space the same width as the grill center. I would probably stop them at the bottom of the trunk lid

Subtle for the bonne. It'* that kind of car. It isn't an attention ***** to begin with. Bonne'* say notice me if you happen to. Until boost happens. lol
