Need some ideas and pics for IOM - spears or hockey stripes, gloss black or flat?

I'm picking up an IOM SS/RS tomorrow, IO interior and the RS painted wheels. It has no stripes, and I could use some ideas on something easy to do myself. Taking a long 3 week trip down south with it over the holidays, and i'd like to personalize it a bit before I go.

Next year I'll probably do custom painted-on SS stripes, but I just want to do some easy tasteful decals for now.

I'm thinking hood spears and the qtr panel gills... Or maybe hockey stripes.

Opinions or pics on what looks good on IOM. I'm leaning toward gloss black hood spears. Can any of the vendors do lettering in the hood spears that match the IOM? I'm thinking of just a simple SS in the spears. If there isn't an IOM lettering match, maybe a gloss black spear with a silver SS to go with the wheel color?

Any ideas and pics would be appreciated. I've only got about a week and a half before I am leaving on the trip. Any graphics vendor you can recommend that can deliver quick?

Thanks.

Someone on the site has a gorgeous IOM SS with lots of beautiful black trimming - mirrors, stripes, etc. Looks great! Find it and check it out...

Thanks, I think that gloss black looks great with the IOM. Now I'm definately leaning toward gloss black spears. Maybe with just an SS in there or a bowtie.

That'd be mine! I wish it was an SS. :(

You can also look here. I've got a few more pics there. If you have any questions let me know.

Also, if you haven't already, check here for some vinyl hood spears ideas.

You did a great job!

Personally, I'd black out the GFX exhaust trim rings
