Stripes on Aqua Blue SS?

My car is coming in this week. The dealer is going to paint the stripes.

I looked at the Aqua Blue metallic post its hard to tell what color to pick.

Any suggestions? Color and Design?

Has anyone done stripes on roof?

Paul,

I have the abm with white stripes ordered from the factory.....if it gets built in time.....nov-30 is the cut-off.....dunno if Iwill make that,I havent seen stripes on the top....but ,iam sure it could prolly be done.

I have only seen one car here on the forum built this way,but it only shows the hood and its a close up shot....I would like to see sum pics but guess it doesnt matter,its ordered.....should be aw sum ! oh,buy the way,the stripes are not painted....they are stick -on.

good luck !!

Steve

I almost bought a ABM till I saw the IOM, but that is EXACTLY the color I would have gotten, ABM with WHITE RALLY STRIPES, no roof stripes either.....its an GREAT color combo.

I am going to get ghost stripes on mine eventually, they are a little lighter than the color of the car to where you can only see them at certain angles. But I like the white also.

I went a little bit more less contrast with silver rallys. Metal flake shows up in the rallys in direct sunlight. Buddy at last rally has white, they both look really good on abm.

I went with the matt black stripes on mine.. At night under the street lights, they turn a silver color when the light hits them. I like the subtle look of the black.

I ordered IOM with CGM stripes and just knew there would be nothing that I would change it for. Well, I saw an ABM with SILVER stripes and was blown away. That combo is gorgeous! I don't regret the IOM but if I were to choose now, it would be very tough. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with ABM and Silver stripes. Well, I guess if you hate the Dallas Cowboys maybe...

Ordered white stripes w/ my ABM. Roof stripes wouldn't work on mine because of the sunroof, wouldn't look right.

I'm not sure if you're considering anything other than rally stripes, but I love the subtlety of my gloss black hockey stick stripes on my ABM 2SS/RS:

i put some avery gunmetal on my ABM car, it kinda matches up to the RS midnight silver wheels, blends nice, and isn't too loud. silver is quite bright. white stands out tons.
any metallic will match the paint better than a solid color......
...and yes i do this for a living.....for over 20 yrs.

ive had many different ideas for mine, one was lightning effects, masked to the shape of the stripes.
ive whipped up a set of realistic flames, a few different solid colors, none have made it on the car.
ppl keep buying them off us before the install goes down.

you could be bold and go avery Pearl Flash. looks like dark silver, but has some chamelion effect with different colors in certain lighting.

White stripes on hood and deck lid only. Go with factory stripes or custom painted.
Gonna be really sharp.

Congrats!

I agree- one thing, in my opinion, the hockey stripes look best in white, while the rally's look best in silver. Either way its gonna be a winner.

Here's a pic of white hockey stripes:


I need to get out and take some in the sun......
