RJT Gold Stripes

I never intended to put any stripes on Ruby, but when I was down in Valdosta I saw an RJT with Gold Hockey Stripes and always thought it looked cool.

I have now bought these

In gold, but am having second thoughts about putting them on!

Sitting here trying to figure out whether it will look ok!

See if you can photo-shop this first to verify you will like it. The paint color you have makes your car look more expensive and perhaps stripes are not appropriate for that car. this is like putting tattoos on a very attractive girl where it makes her look worse, after she gets them. Certain color combinations do look good with stripes like the pic in my avatar.

Saw one the other day and snapped this pic. Those are the RS 20 inch wheels that have been painted black.

You make a very good point, I would never put stripes on the roof/trunk/hood but I liked the idea of stripes on the side. I wish I could photo shop!

You know that you want to do it...so do it! I wouldn't consider my or anybody's else's opinion...your name is on the title. But I would do it in paint, not vinyl.

Don't like the rims. Love the color combo, though. Go 49ers!

IMO, that color looks best w/o any stripes. Black hood stripes are the only thing I'd consider, I've seen that combo and think it looks good.

Beautiful car btw

Put them on and if you like the color combo, then use them as a template and paint the stripes gold. The gold paint will make the color stand out far more than the vinyl stripes. Good luck.

I think it would look ok.

I've toyed with the idea of doing gold accents on my car. Of course, I'm a fan of black/gold f-bodies.

This car is the inspiration for my '78 TA.

I'm looking forward to see how this turns out. I never would have considered gold and RJT but I really like how they look together.
