pinstriping yeah or nay

So having time on my hands I decided to blow five bucks and pin stripe in this pattern I had seen somewhat like it, and I think it turned out fairly well.
I just wonder if others find it tasteful ? , the next step is flame airbrushed rally stripes from ACC I have to wait to put on until my motor can be installed.

SO do you like em? how about the ones I have waiting......





and the front




And the next

I'm not a fan of either one. I think most Camaros look better clean and mean.

yes mocking up the side stripes is a cheap way to go as I was thinking about buying some retro stripes that are about exactly that shape. I have the flames to put on the hood and trunk but flames on the side is too much and I think additional graphics is too cluttered. I will just leave the pin striping on until I get the flames done.

So I've had my maro 6 years now, and have finally decided to "girl" it up a bit with Yellow on the bow ties, hood, gills, and RS is now yellow instead of red. I didn't go as far as the trunk, however, now I think I should.

Mine is certainly "girled" up. Rhinestoned the bow ties.

I never liked pin stripes and always thought it was an ugly feature that took away from the looks of a car. However its your car do so as you please.

I have the factory stripes on mine and haven't caused me any pain what so ever. In reality I didn't want them but that's not how the cards was dealt to me.
