Default SS Stripe Advice please...

The date is pretty much set for April. I will be getting 2 nicely sized black SS stripes along the middle of the Bonnie, however I'm confused on wheather or not I should continue the stripes on the roof as well? I know for sure the hood, trunk, spoiler, and everything BUT the bumper covers will be painted....but what about the roof? I havn't the slightest on how it would look (good or bad) on my car because I am useless when trying to figure out photoshop!

Any advice?

I think it'* bret1994 that has those really cool stripes. His went right up over the hood and are very classy, especially on the green car. His stripes have a thinner outline on them, too.

Oops. His are outlined, I think, so they start at the leading edge of the hood, over the roof (he masked off his sunroof ), skip the back window, and down the trunk. I can't remember if he did his spoiler.

BRETT!

Oh I'm doing the spoiler no matter what. I like that look.

Its just that my source who is doing the painting suggests I don't do the roof because it looks "ugly as hell" he says. But then he says, "Its your car though"

Then I punched him in the face and said, "DAMN STRAIGHT IT IS!"
Nah that last part didn't happen.... :P

I dunno yet, anyone else have opinions on this subject?

Hook up with some pics. I'm pretty sure it'* bret1994ssei. It was one of his first posts that showed the car. Might even be on cardomain. It was so sharp, you should just do exactly what he did, and start a trend.

I remember his picture, but can't recall if it had the boarder SS stripes. Mine will be very similar except black on red...so cops will follow my red behind all around.

He had the border stripes for sure. I remember. Your hood protector will look funny, though. You'll probably ditch it with the stripes. You'll have more contrast than him.
