Custom Painted Stripes and Ground Effects

Here is an original I have not seen. After talking to so many great people on the boards and seeing all the cool designs, we decided to make our own custom hybrid stripe package. I like the look of the factory style yet the width of the bumble bee. So here is the hybrid version. Also we chromed the wheels, tinted the windows, painted the ground effects, blacked out the exhaust, added side gills and painted the deck lid. We also added the mats with the yellow trim. I love it! Tell me what you think?

Looks amazing! How much, on average, would painted stripes cost instead of getting the vinyl stripes?

Wow very nice! I love the stripes how they go over the hood bulge on the side and the way you painted the GFX kit looks great!

Where did you get your floor mats btw?

That car looks amazing! One of the best painted stripe jobs yet. As someone stated, I also love how they handled the lines along the cowl. Great job and you are the first to do the rear GFX that way. Looks great! Love the no font spoiler GFX look (okay, I am biased).

I wanted to do something different. I am really happy with the way it came out.

The stripes should cost anywhere from 1000-1500.

I think I am going to put the bowtie back. It needs something.
I also have the magna charger in the garage waiting for the install
