i dont kno if i have asked this be4 but is the orange around ur wheels painted or vinyl? either way how much was it to do that?
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

when i had mine done i only did it on one side. they look good on both though....i went back and forth so i figured i'd try one side first to see how i like it.
