Smile Victory Red Camaro Stripe Color

Hey everyone this is my first post but I was hoping to get some of your opinions on what color stripes I should do. I have a victory red camaro V6 and am planning on getting some vinyl stripes added but am having a hard time trying to decide what color...Right now its mainly between glossy black or the CGM and since it is a v6 im gonna leave the stripes ending at the just the hood line and then have it ending over the spoiler.

So what do color do you guys think would look good? Thanks for all your opinions in advance. And I know this thread will be worthless without pics so ill be sure to post some afterwards.

I'm definitely partial to the black glossy stripes. Here is the pics of my car with the stripes added, I will try to find some before pics. It looks much more aggressive now

White is a consideration as well.

Are you getting the GFX package? My opinion is the gloss black stripes with the GFX painted black. However, if you leave the GFX (assuming you're getting them), their argent gray color, then I'd add the CGM stripes!

No gfx, then gloss black.

You didn't say but which wheels do you have on the car?

If you have the RS package with the midnight silver finish wheels, then go with cyber gray or silver stripes. Those two colors will go better with the wheel color.

If you don't have the RS package, then go with white stripes. Classic look.

As for black stripes...they look alright on VR but they kind of just blend in too much.

Wow thanks everyone for your pics and votes. I think Im gonna go with Glossy Black but every time I scroll down and see those white stripes Im back right where I started! Caverman: Thats an awesome spoiler as well. Nice Car. Rolnslo: I have the SS wheels but I decided not to go with the GFX. And for those who need some before pics...here you go.

White, but IMO just white hood spears looks better than rally stripes.

AuSStinVRCamaro Your right in getting stripes, your camaro looks naked without them. Black is a good choice, goes with the facia and tires.

Ah, so you have an LS with the silver SS wheels. Hmm, since you don't have the RS package, you have the black roof rails on your car. Those would clash slightly with cyber gray or white stripes. Maybe glossy black would be the right look for your car. It would go better with the black roof rails and the black fog light covers...

There...did that help make the decision any easier?

I don't have the SS, I only have the little 6er.
I wish I had that mail slot and a more hardware under the hood.

Someone recently posted pics of a red Camaro with dark red (burgundy) stripes. It looked sweet.

As for me, I'm going to put black spears on my hood. My car is CGM.
