    Maybe you should do the side mirrors in orange as well. It might give a nice look to the whole color scheme

    Ive had 95% positive comments , everyone likes the stripe. one person didn't like the wheels.

    but ive had people from 20-73 tell me it looks great.

    I think it looks like a hotwheels diecast car now lol, which I lke

    For the stripes, I measured and found the center of the car and made pencil marks,
    then measured 5.5 inches off the center each way and taped.
    then measured andother 1.75 inches for the outside stripes.

    I did about 8 coats of plastidip.
    the final coat I did thicker and removed the tape immediately after spraying.

    then I bought two $5 packs of pinstriping, and put it along the edges and it improved the look a lot.

    I thought it would look dumb when looking at the thumb pics, but full sized looks pretty sweet.
