Apparantly people stopped doing this in about 1985 but I thought i'd do it anyway, prior to putting on all my workmates said I need taking away in an ambulance by men in white coats and I wasn't sure how i'd react myself but now it's done i'm quite happy with it. I know it's marmite but what's the general consensus?

Before: Land vehicle Vehicle Car Personal luxury car Alloy wheel

After: Land vehicle Vehicle Car Alloy wheel Personal luxury car
Land vehicle Vehicle Car Alloy wheel Tire

So then put my mind at ease / set me on fire!

I think pinstripes and "go faster" stripes can look good without being chavy, in fact I've been considering putting them on my car.


Maybe something like this...

On an older car with new pinstripes I don't "trust" them. They were frequently added to old cars to cover an edge from a partial respray

ACS do them too
I always loved the ACS ones however I haven't got a real Schnitzer, if you do the stripes you've got to do everything else ;)
Personally didn't want anything too strong (imo the BMW performance ones and wow how much???)

I know what you mean but definately no skeletons in my baby's closet.

I bit of a mixed bag then as I said initially a bit controversial (like my WHITE rocker cover), but I welcome any bit of input - it's all about the debate.

P.S Anyone who can do coachlines by hand is probably not a man but an android who looks remarkably like a human being :jaw-dropping

Rubbish, I could do one dead easy, duck tape brush to gate post and roll car past it.


Actually for the version two I would just drill a hole, or holes, in the gate post for the brush handle(s)

Good idea with the gate post!, so as I thought pretty much split down the middle on the poll front, just over a week on and i'm still well happy with how it looks.
Again thanks for your input.
