Thanks I think you need to adjust your color setting on your computer because this thing is glowing like a tangerine in these pics!!

Yea definitely not hating, just thought "traditionally" that's how it was. I saw another company selling them awhile ago one sided, so that's where I'm coming from. They look awesome though.

Would it be overkill to put these on my car since I have flat black rally stripes already?

I am eventually going to do a single thick matte black stripe down the cowl of the hood once I get the rksport hood. I do not know if it would be too much in your case though.

A single stripe would look kickass on your car, man. I'm gonna Photoshop these on my car to see if they'll go with two stripes. Thanks for the idea!

Thanks... they were color matched painted. I got the wheels/tires with the pinstripes painted and lowered all at the same time at the same shop so I do not remember exactly. But it was somewhere in the range of $30-40 a wheel I think.

Love em!

I'm am undecided about the hood stripe - I love your roof and to me the ones on the hood almost detract from what you've done but the Grand Sport stripes do a great job to accent your car.

Your car is one of my favorites on this site!

Looks good! I have the gloss black hash marks and only rock it to the left. Doesn't really look awkward.

You can practically only see one side at a time anyway lol

Me too I do not know if the hood stripe will be too much. I think I will have the hood painted all orange and then see if I want to add the stripe after.

That's all fine and dandy, they look cool, and I'll be putting them on #2 when I get it, BUT aren't Ford and Dodge putting these on their vehicles too?

Ford isn't, SMS is... and yes dodge has them. But I think they originated with this car.

hash marks are a lemans thing,used to tell which side the steering wheel was located on. has been on many cars including datsuns. chevy did it in 63 with the grand sports that had similar paint schemes to be able to tell them apart 1 piece of duct tape car#1 and so on. so not really a manufacturer thing
