Most Firebirds I have seen don't have stripes, so I doubt I would do a stripe. The one I am looking at has the hood scoops and tach on the hood so I don't think stripes would look good. For the wheels, I am thinking either original Pontiac wheels or something similar to the era like this:
Torq thrusts are nice. I was looking into them. Im waiting on a nice used pair that I can get for maybe 3/4 the price. Right now my Firebird is sitting down my uncles chevy dealership in the body shop, waiting for the day I begin working on it again. So far I have just given the car a rebuilt engine with a clean engine compartment.
