Do you have a wider shot of the car? It's kinda hard to tell if it matches your hood and rocker stripes.

I have mirror stripes on my car and I like them. It's a nice little touch that makes your car stand out a little and the price is definitely right.

I don't have a full shot yet. Once the rain stops, i'll get a full frontal shot (lol). I think it looks better live, but i'm not sure i like it in the photos.

This one is a little more head on; i think the flash made the other shot make the stripe seem brighter than the rally and rocker stripes.

I'm imagining it would look better in person as well. After looking at the last pic you posted, I say keep it. I like my mirror stripes.

I did something a little similar. i did the top as well in black. It gives the mirror the illusion of being smaller and stealthy haha. Just doing the middle isnt really doing it for me though

I think the smooth, wavy-ness of the mirror stripe clashes with the very sharp and angular lower stripe on the side

I did those too before my new ones. I liked them but it didnt fit my scheme very well. I think it looks good on yours. The ones I ordered were cheap ones off ebay. The only ones I could find :/ When I ordered my new ones (that go on the top), I had them custom made from a buddy in NY. If you ever decide you want higher quality ones, let me know. Ill give you his name.

There are only two options in life. Fight or flight. Most people run. Almost all people run. But not us. The difference between us and everyone else is that we run towards the gunfire. And that makes all the difference.

Seems like opinions are split down the middle. I'll leave 'em on for a couple of weeks and see if what (if any) response i get at local meets.

Always appreciate fellow Camaro5 opinions. Thanks to all for taking the time to provide feedback.

I thought I was the only one that notices things like that.
